HAVE A VERY BLESSED CHRISTMAS
And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold,
I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people”.
Every blessing to you and all of your loved ones at this Christmas season.
The signs of the times indicate we are in the season of the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The signs of nature (Luke 21:11), the condition of society (2 Timothy 3:1-4), the spiritual condition of the church (2 Timothy 4:3-4), the state of world politics (Matt 24:6-7), technology (Luke 21:26), and most importantly Israel being back in her land (Zechariah 12:3), all shout the message that He is coming soon. Given that fact, we should all consider how living in the season of the Lord’s return should impact our giving. As Christians, we need to live with an eternal perspective.
Biblical stewardship requires the handling of time, talents, and treasures according to the instructions of God. The foundational principle of biblical stewardship is that “God owns it all”. If you keep all of it or hold something back, then you are acting as the owner. Giving cheerfully to God engages His blessings to a faithful steward.
The Bible contains 2,350 verses that discuss the handling of money or possessions. I believe money is mentioned so much because it is the number one competitor with Jesus Christ for our lives and devotion. (Matthew 6:24).
We would be so grateful if you would consider a generous gift at this time. If you are a regular giver perhaps you might consider something extra in gratitude to God for His goodness.
This would be such a blessing as we launch into 2022 which promises some exciting opportunities.
With much love and prayer.
Bill and Dorothy with the Team.
