November 20, 2016 – Give and Make it So!

Pastor Jeff Purganan

Scripture:

Key Points:

  • Giving:  Tithing is not a tax.   It isn’t that 10% is God’s and 90% is ours.  Everything we have, everything we are is God’s. What really the intent of what God wants us to do?
  • The intent is to set aside a portion of funds to fulfill a vision.
  • In the church it includes place to gather, services and ministries and acts (support people in service).
  • Giving is enabler to for the Kingdom to grow.
  • Giving is more than money.  It is giving of yourself and then allowing the church to fulfill a vision.
  • Give according to your richness – richness can be more than money.  It can include your experience, vision, prayer, energy…
  • This body had the opportunity to identify what we want and should do, and to make it happen by giving according to our richness.  We need to set aside a portion of our riches so when the need arises, make it the need happen.
