In the New Testament, Jesus Christ teaches that serving and giving are both essential. It is not just a minimum requirement since everything we have-including the breath we have in our lungs belongs to God himself. Nothing on this earth belongs to anyone but God and we can only give and return that which has already been given by Him:
"But who am I, and who are my people,
that we should be able to give as generously as this?
Everything comes from you, and we have given you only
what comes from your hand."
(1 Chronicles 29:14 NIV)
It is a disposition of thankfulness to our loving father, who did not withhold anything, including his only son Jesus Christ to save us all from eternal death. As Christians, we do not just live for ourselves, we live for God and others. It is the Holy Spirit itself that imparts this generosity in our hearts. If you are part of this family, you know we greatly value your generosity for the sake of the Gospel. If you desire to join alongside the committed group sowing their seeds, lives, resources, and talents to spread the gospel, you may by sowing any amount. Everything sown helps to forward the cause for the benefit of all. No matter what purpose God has called you for, he rewards accordingly, and we are grateful!
God bless every seed that you sow in this 2019.
