Gospel-Driven Generosity

For believers, generosity encompasses every part of our life. We're generous because of how much God has generously given us. This is Gospel-driven generosity. Christ has paid the debt we owe, there is nothing more to give, other than surrendering to Him as Lord and Savior. Part of calling Jesus Lord is that we surrender every aspect of our lives to him. Everything we have belongs to him, so we give of it freely and joyfully. We're called to be generous in every aspect of our lives.

One way we're called to be generous is in our finances. We believe that we are called to respond to the generosity of the gospel by giving generously. Your generosity in giving is not about gaining favor with God because of the size of your donation. In fact, Jesus remarks that a poor widow's offering was much more valuable than the rich people's offering because she gave with her heart, not her deep pockets. Gospel-driven generosity is an expression of our faith and love to Him by honoring Him as the source of everything we have. Scriptural giving is performed with regularity, from the first portion of all we are given, as a proportion of our income, cheerfully, and without pressure or manipulation.

We can give generously in various areas of life, but one area of focus for our giving is supporting spread of the gospel, locally and internationally. At WBC, we aim to see the gospel proclaimed Downriver and see people believe in Jesus Christ in salvation. If you are a member of WBC, consider WBC your home church, or have appreciated the gospel work of WBC, we ask that you give to support the work of our church in making disciples of Jesus Christ in the Downriver area. 

I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. - Philemon 1:6
