Believers give to God and to the Church of Jesus Christ in response to the gifts and promises that we have received. The Lord has blessed all of us immensely by loving us unconditionally and by offering us undeserved grace by way of the cross of Christ. We give back to the Lord out of gratitude for these blessings.
It is also true that God uses our giving to help each of us to grow spiritually. In this sense our giving becomes an opportunity for the Lord to mold our lives into becoming more generous persons in all aspects of our being.
Finally, by giving to Christ’s Church we are able to participate in the work of the Kingdom of God that the Church uniquely undertakes. Our gifts enable lives to be touched for Christ and needs to be met in the world that we would be unable to accomplish if left to ourselves. We can share in the work of the Gospel and mission initiatives through the Church in ways that multiply the effect of whatever we are able to give.
