Here’s a short video on how to give by text:
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” — 2 Corinthians 9:7
As Christians, part of what it means to follow Jesus is to support the work of His church with our finances. While we do not expect visitors to give financially when they worship with us, we encourage all regular attenders and members to give financially toward the ministry of the church as an expression of discipleship and an act of worship. There are several biblical motivations for doing so:
- We give out of obedience. By faith we understand that God gives us resources (James 1:17), not to hoard for ourselves, but to invest in the causes that bring joy to our Master (Matthew 25:14-30), including: ministry, service to others, and care for those in need.
- We give out of gratitude. The Apostle Paul motivated early Christians to financial generosity by reminding us of the essence of the gospel when he said, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9). The gospel we received motivates us to model a gospel-generosity for the sake of others.
- We give out of our need. Stories like the rich, young ruler (Luke 18:18-29) reveal to us that we can use money to serve “idols” of security, significance, and power. We undercut their control over our lives by giving away our resources and entrusting our lives to God.
- We give out of the privilege for participating in God’s mission. Jesus reminds us that the way to experience the abundant life is to invest it for Jesus’ sake and for the advancement of the gospel (Mark 8:34-38). In this way, the giving of our resources is an expression of the larger call to invest our very lives for the sake of Jesus and His kingdom.
