WHY IS GIVING SO IMPORTANT?
We recognize that Jesus talked more about giving than the subjects of heaven, hell, or prayer. Not that money is the most important thing to Jesus, but that he knows us too well and money often becomes the most important thing to us. In Matthew 6, Jesus tells us to not build up treasures on earth, but to build treasure in heaven. He tells us that where our treasure is our heart is. He warns us and says, "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money." (Matt 6:24) Giving is important because either we worship God with our money or we worship something else with our money. By giving and sacrificing financially, we are trusting Jesus as our Lord and provider. Giving sacrificially and cheerfully of our finances is a way we worship Jesus.
God is a giver! God gave his only Son Jesus. Jesus gave his life. God gave us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives us spiritual gifts, gives us peace, and gives us wisdom. It pleases God to give as he is a giver. One way we follow God and become more like Jesus is by giving.
Changing the world
Jesus died and sacrificed his life for us that we might have new life in Him. In following him in obedience, we give and sacrifice with all of our life, that others may believe and follow Jesus. Your financial giving is funding the mission of God through Coram Deo Church that others may believe in the Gospel and be changed. Your giving is helping change the world.
