Sit. Walk. Stand.

Week 9

Giving. Many churches throughout the years have misused this topic to pressure believers into tithing, while others rarely talk about it for fear of “turning people off to the Gospel”. The reality is that living generously has the potential to bring the greatest joy in the Christian life. What begins as a discipline, should become a heartfelt desire as we mature.

As you grow in Christ, your mentality should go from “How much of what I have should I give?” to “How much of what God has given me should I keep?”

In giving away some of our resources, we are able to more fully enjoy all that God has to offer. It’s like chopping wood… it takes hard work and sacrifice, but at the end of a hard day’s work we get to accomplish a task that extends God’s kingdom.

One of our RADIUS Kids recently made bracelets and sold them to raise money for the folks affected by the hurricane in Texas. Our goal as a church is to add to that by collecting funds just before Thanksgiving to send with a RADIUS team to Houston. Over the next few weeks we ask you to pray about how God would like you to participate in giving towards Texas and RADIUS. If you would like to participate, please visit our Giving page and choose “Hurricane Relief” from the list of funds.

If you would like to begin a conversation about following King Jesus or more information on how He might be calling you to go, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.

Over this series, we’ve been working through a few books to help guide our training. If you would like to check them out, you can purchase them below.
