Slide 1: A BIBLICAL GIVING EXPERIENCE! One Half Of The World Is Without An Adequate Gospel Witness. : One Half Of The World Is Without An Adequate Gospel Witness. WE HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO REACH THEM! WE HAVE ONLY TWO CHOICES : WE HAVE ONLY TWO CHOICES 1. WE MUST GO AS MISSIONARIES - 2. WE MUST SEND OTHERS - or COMMITTED MONTHLY GIVING MAKES THIS POSSIBLE. Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark 16:15 (NIV) Paul wrote, “And how will anyone go and tell them unless someone sends him?” Rom 10:15 (TLB) Slide 4: COMMITTED MISSIONS GIVING: Your tithe is God’s portion of what He has already provided for you. The Church office will not contact you if you fail to make a payment. IS NOT YOUR TITHE IS NOT JUST A PLEDGE Paul wrote concerning the giving of the Macedonian Christians, : Paul wrote concerning the giving of the Macedonian Christians, “For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord,” 2 Cor 8:3 (NASU) THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF COMMITTED GIVING THAT SUPPORT MISSIONS : THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF COMMITTED GIVING THAT SUPPORT MISSIONS “according to their ability” BUDGETED GIVING FAITH PROMISE GIVING “..beyond their ability..” BUDGETED GIVING MEANS: : BUDGETED GIVING MEANS: To give regularly To include missions in your monthly budget as a priority item To give what you are truly able to afford Slide 8: FAITH PROMISE GIVING LIFTS US TO A HIGHER LEVEL OF PARTNERSHIP! It is not based on your ability to give but rests confidently in God’s ability to provide as your faith ascends to new heights. WHAT IS A FAITH PROMISE? : WHAT IS A FAITH PROMISE? It is a spiritual agreement between you and God to give monthly during the next year. It is a sacred act. It is your total reliance upon God for divine provision. WHO SHOULD MAKE A FAITH PROMISE? : WHO SHOULD MAKE A FAITH PROMISE? We are all called to be either goers or senders. Children and youth should be taught to make a faith promise. Every family unit should make a faith promise. FAITH PROMISE GIVING IS THE GREAT EQUALIZER : FAITH PROMISE GIVING IS THE GREAT EQUALIZER Slide 12: If it is an amount that you can afford to give, it doesn’t require as much faith. If the amount you have promised to give isn’t a challenge to you, it may not stretch your faith. FAITH? IS YOUR PROMISE REALLY MADE IN WHY MUST I FILL OUT A FAITH PROMISE CARD? : WHY MUST I FILL OUT A FAITH PROMISE CARD? Missionaries cannot leave for the field until their budget is complete. Missions leadership will not know how much the church can commit to support of missionaries until your promises are totaled. I DON’T WANT OTHERS TO KNOW WHAT I AM GIVING! : I DON’T WANT OTHERS TO KNOW WHAT I AM GIVING! Amounts, but not names, will be announced. Confidentiality will be maintained. Only those who administer missions funds will see your card. IF I MADE A FAITH PROMISE LAST YEAR, MUST I MAKE A NEW ONE? : IF I MADE A FAITH PROMISE LAST YEAR, MUST I MAKE A NEW ONE? Yes, because each faith promise is made for one year. Yes, because you WILL want to increase your giving for next year. Yes, because we start fresh today. HOW DO I GIVE MY FAITH PROMISE? : HOW DO I GIVE MY FAITH PROMISE? Most will give on mission’s Sunday. Some will give as they receive their salary. Others must wait until God provides. All should clearly mark their giving “missions”. HOW MUCH IS A FAITH PROMISE? : ? HOW MUCH IS A FAITH PROMISE? GOD GAVE HIS SON JESUS GAVE HIS LIFE FOR LOST SOULS SHOULDN’T WE GIVE MORE TO REACH THE LOST THAN WE SPEND ON: Slide 18: CALVARY DEMANDS OUR BEST, NOT OUR LEFTOVERS! So, How Much Should My Faith Promise Be? : So, How Much Should My Faith Promise Be? JUST ASK GOD! HE WILL TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOUR FAITH PROMISE SHOULD BE. Here’s a revolutionary idea. Slide 20: And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you may always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work. 2 Cor 9:8 (RSV) WILL UNLOCK THE RESOURCES NEEDED TO COMPLETE YOUR COMMITMENT ACTIVE FAITH Slide 21: ACTIVE OBEDIENCE WILL LEAD YOU TO MAKE YOUR COMMITMENT NOW! “Each one must do as he has made up his mind…” 2 Cor 9:7 (RSV)
