Forward Faith
There are more promises in the Bible about giving than about any other subject.
Here is another one of them:
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NIV)
6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
These inspired words of the apostle Paul are a guiding principle for Christian giving. Whether we are giving of our time, energy, or material possessions, let us do so of our own free will and because we find genuine pleasure in being generous to others, especially those in need. Such giving will not only make us happy but also endear us to God, for he “loves a cheerful giver.” A giving attitude is more important than the amount given. The person who can give only a small gift shouldn't be embarrassed. God is concerned about how a person gives from his or her resources. God himself is a cheerful giver. Consider all he has done for us. He is pleased when we who are created in his image give generously and joyfully.
This Sunday at C3 is our second of three weeks of receiving our Forward Faith launch gifts and 36 month commitments.
If you have not yet asked God what He wants to give through you….do so cheerfully!
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
