Why Believers Give?
John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” By virtue of this verse of scripture we learn that “It is possible to give without loving, but it’s impossible to love without giving.” Just as love serves as the foundation for giving, giving then becomes the very manifestation, expression, and illustration of that love. Believers give because their generous faith giving is actually a sincere reflection of their conviction, appreciation, affirmation, and love of Christ.
The generous love gifts, tithes, and offerings that believers faithfully give to FBC Mahan (112) are utilized for the spread of the Gospel of Christ, attending to the spiritual/physical needs of our membership/community, the promotion of missional aims around the state, the nation, and globally, and the faithful stewardship of Our Lord’s Church.
Why should YOU Give? You should give not only because of your desire to be a blessing to someone else, but also because you desire your giving to illustrate the love and appreciation you have for that great gift of love that God bestowed unto us (John 3:16). Remember, it is possible to give without loving but it is impossible to love without giving.
Luke 6:38: “…give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
