As you read the New Testament you see in almost every church that the Apostle Paul planted a willingness on the part of that church to share in the needs of other churches and other believers. This kind of selfless generosity was almost a prerequisite for Paul and the churches that he planted. The idea of sharing your blessings with those in need was a Christian characteristic that became a means of blessing … both for the giver and receiver. The closest thing to this kind of Kingdom commitment that we see in the church today is found in the budgets of local church missions ministries. This money … money that is budgeted to be given to other “works” and other “workers” is part of a long tradition of one body of believers sharing with another body of believers that goes back to biblical times. Sharing the blessings that God has given us with other people in other places who are, as we are, committed to proclaiming the name of Christ … is a Christ-like behavior that is sure to bless the giver and the “getter.”
The faith family of Greeley Wesleyan is very intentional about the mission of ministering to those in need in our community and around the world who may never set foot in our building. Each month we will be focusing on ONE Thing – ways that you and your family can be involved in missions in very practical ways.
