Pastor's Message: Our Stewardship is a Gift to God

The first purpose of stewardship is to honor and glorify God. Anything that we do for the Lord and his church, whether it is an offering of time and talent, or a financial offering in the collection, is a gift to God.

Secondly, the purpose of stewardship is to advance the kingdom of God and meet the needs of the body of Christ. It’s connected to the first purpose. As you honor God with your gift, he then takes it and uses it to further his work.

The third purpose of stewardship is, with the help of God, to bring increase and blessing into your own life. Jesus said, “Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall be poured into your lap. For the measure you measure with, shall be measured back to you.” God cares about you and your material needs. It is his will that you be blessed abundantly if you have been a blessing to others.

Stewardship. It’s heart work. It causes us to examine the purpose for which we manage our money. When our purposes come in line with God’s plan, our generous stewardship never takes anything away from us, but becomes a great blessing to God, others, and ourselves.
