Christians give to the Lord as an act of worship and obedience. True and acceptable worship of the Lord is revealed in Scripture as being that which is willingly offered up to Him. The Lord faithfully provides and blesses us each and every day, and His touch naturally, supernaturally brings out in us an act of worship.
Your faithful giving is of great importance in preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in our church, our community, and our world. Your support for the ministry supports the great advance of the kingdom of God through the church.
The Basis of Giving
The Bible makes it clear that worship has many forms that can take place at various times. For example, when we sing to the Lord, we can do so anywhere and at anytime. When we serve Him, we can serve Him anywhere and anytime.
When it comes to giving to Him in our tithes and offerings, we ought to be able to give anywhere and at anytime as well. Online giving provides a convenient way for us to give, making it easier for us to consistently and faithfully worship the Lord in this manner.
Many believers think that they are serving and worshiping God at all times, but when it comes to giving back to the Lord from the finances that rightfully belong to Him, there’s a hesitation. We should all be excited to serve together in the advancement of God’s kingdom.
The Bible on Giving
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now in this.” says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.Malachi 3:10
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”2 Corinthians 9:6 -7
In these verses the Lord calls us to worship Him through and with what He has given us.
