Give Online

Generous giving is a thoroughly Biblical concept. Part of God's nature is to be a generous giver. God has given His Son for our sins; He has given us His Spirit for life. He has generously given His people all things that pertain to life and godliness.

After Abraham came back from his victory in battle, He gave a tenth of all he had. After the Israelites exodus from Egypt, they gave so much for the construction of the tabernacle that they had to be stopped. Under the Old Covenant, the Israelites were to give a tenth of their goods to God's house.

The humility of the God-Man, Jesus, can be seen in how His earthly ministry was supported by humans that He had made. The tithe is a good starting place but should is not the mandate.  Under the New Covenant, God does not mandate a specific amount that each believer must give, but there are New Testament principles laid out for us. In 1 Corinthians 9:13-14 Paul writes, "Do you not know those who are employed in the temple service get their food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in the sacrificial offering? In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who proclaim the gospel get their living by the gospel." Those employed in gospel service should get their living by the gospel.  

In 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 we read, "This is the point: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having a sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work." What should be our motivation for generous, cheerful giving to gospel work: God's gift of the greatest gift ever--JESUS?! "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor so that you by His poverty might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9).
