At CLCBC, we endeavor to make a clear point about the aspect of giving in a christian Life. Giving is LOVE and Love is our greatest trait as Christians
It is a discipline of discipleship to our Lord Jesus Christ. When a Christian does not give, it can be easily said that we are weak and deficient in our discipleship to and dependence upon Christ Jesus our Lord.
it actually shows our Dependence on God as our Father and not our resources.
To Give at CLCBC reveals that we are managers as far as God is concerned.
All resources put in our care by God is not just for our enjoyment but for the establishment of His PURPOSE on earth.
it is also said to be a ministry that God has called every of his children into. As we are all called into evangelism, so also are we all called into this MINISTRY.
At CLCBC, we implement this in four different ways
Proverbs 11:25: “The generous person will prosper, and whoever refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”
Meaning: Giving benefits not only the recipient but also the giver.
Proverbs 19:17: “The one showing favor to the lowly is lending to Jehovah, and He will repay him for what he does.”
Meaning: God considers himself to be indebted to those who help the needy, and he promises to repay such generosity.
Matthew 6:2: “When you make gifts of mercy, do not blow a trumpet ahead of you, as the hypocrites do . . . so that they may be glorified by men.”
Meaning: We should not give just to attract attention to ourselves.
Acts 20:35: “There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.”
Meaning: Heartfelt generosity brings happiness.
2 Corinthians 9:7: “Let each one do just as he has resolved in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Meaning: Giving that is done voluntarily pleases God.
