Why We Do This:
Simply put… Because we love you!
In Philippians 2:3-4 the Bible tells us that the needs of others are always more important than our own… “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
– We give because we care
– We give because we love each other
– We give because the Christian life demands it through obedience to God
– We give because THAT’S WHO JESUS IS
The most beloved verse in the Bible is John 3:16… “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
It started with God giving His son for us to die on a cross. It continued with Jesus giving Himself as a sacrifice for our sins. Because Jesus gave Himself on a cross, we are forgiven of our sin. The Bible tells us that the wages of sin is death. A ‘wage’ is something that we earn. Through our sin, we have earned death. BUT… Jesus died so that we could live! Not just for now, but for forever!
ISN’T THAT GREAT NEWS?!
