Giving as an Act of Worship
Jesus had a lot to say about money…
Probably because he knew how much anxiety and fear it caused in people’s lives. Throughout the New Testament, he offers a path to freedom: sacrifice. Time and time again, he calls us to give up material things that have gripped our hearts as a means of aligning ourselves to God—often this means giving of our finances.
Giving is an act of worship that when practiced in cooperation with the Holy Spirit will form us into Christ’s likeness. Though giving does sustain many practical functions of the church, its primary purpose is to align our hearts with Christ.
We Encourage Giving as an Act of Worship
Our hearts become focused on our true treasure – Christ. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
We acknowledge that God is the owner of everything. “Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.
| 1Chronicles 29:11-12 |
It is of our FREE RESPONSE to all that God has done for us, not out of guilt or duty. “How happy your people must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom!”
| 2 Chronicles 9:7 |
