You might ask how you can get the funds to give to missions through the faith promise offering. Well here are three options that God might use to give you the ability to support missions!
He may increase your income.
He may decrease your expenses.
He may lead you to sacrifice.
Remember that we support our missionaries based on how you give. If the money isn’t there then we can send it on. So when you give a special offering to someone even a missionary you must remember that if the offerings are down then we have to drop missionaries.
I hope you will learn the joy of giving to get the gospel around the world.
Remember to take care to give your tithes and offerings first to take care of the expenses of our church.
A great preacher once said The light the shines the farthest shines the brightest at home!
That means that we must support our home ministry. We must not take from our normal offerings to give to missions no matter how much we want to give to a certain missionary.
We must also be doing all we can to get the gospel to our area because giving money to get the gospel to the world is never a substitute for what we do here at home.
