Thank you for your consideration in giving to the ministry of New Alpha Worship Center. It is an investment with eternal value.
The Bible has a lot to say about giving. The question we must ask is not “What do people say about giving?”, but “What does God’s Word say about giving?”
Giving is biblical. Biblical giving is generous and sacrificial because the Spirit of God moves thankful believers to meet the needs of God’s work, God’s workers, and God’s children. God blesses those believers who respond to the Spirit’s prompting to give sacrificially to His Son’s work. This does not mean that if I give God will make me rich. What it does mean is that if I give God promises me a rewarding life both now and in eternity.
God tells Christian where to put their money as an investment. Jesus put it this way Matthew 6:19-21:
“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
Generous biblical giving shows God where our heart really is. Those who truly love His Son and desire His purposes will support His Son’s work.
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”
– 2 Corinthians 9:7
God promises blessings to generous biblical givers:
“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 4: 19
Luke 6:38 says:
“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.”
Givers know their investments are eternally secure.
