Stewardship 2017: Building Our Future Hope
“like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house” 1 Peter 2:5
Faith is God’s gift to us.
With Faith, we trust God with ourselves and our resources.
“Giving has always been a mark of Christian commitment and discipleship. The ways in which a believer uses God’s gifts of material goods, personal abilities, and time should reflect a faithful response to God’s self-giving in Jesus Christ and Christ’s call to minister to and share with others in the world. Tithing is a primary expression of the Christian discipline of stewardship.”
“Those who follow the discipline of Christian stewardship will find themselves called to lives of simplicity, generosity, honesty, hospitality, compassion, receptivity, and concern for the earth and God’s creatures.”
“The Christian life is an offering of one’s self to God. In worship the people are presented with the costly self offering of Jesus Christ, are claimed and set free by him, and are led to respond by offering to him their lives, their particular gifts and abilities, and their material goods.”
