Lifestyle of Giving
Giving is an act of worship. Although finances are transacted, the biblical idea is that the giver is giving it to God. God’s purpose for giving is ultimately His glory. When a church uses its resources to “reach and deepen” people the results are, those reached and those deepened are added to the Kingdom of God. When churches care for those in crisis the recipients are humbled to thank and magnify God. When the Church complies to the instructions from God to “gather together” (Heb. 10:25) their services of singing, teaching, praying, fellowshipping, sharing, and celebrating the goodness and greatness of God all glorify Him.
Your giving comes with a potential increase in who you are:
“Luke 6:38 - Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (KJV)."
And, we don’t encourage giving to simply receive. One should give because that’s who they are. God is more concerned with the condition of your heart as you give, rather than the quantity. "God loves a cheerful giver."
Jubilee Baptist Church of Bolingbrook, IL sincerely thanks you for worshiping with your giving through us.
