As we near the end of 2013 it’s not too late to make a year-end gift to whatever church you may attend. With thanks to the inspiration of a great blog by Perry Noble here are three reasons why you should consider making a gift.
#1 – When we give we become imitators of God (Ephesians 5: 1). God is the first and most generous being in the universe. God GAVE His Son (John 3:16). Jesus GAVE His life. God GAVE us His Holy Spirit. God GAVE us the promise of heaven. God GAVE us the promise to always be with us.
#2 – When we sow generously we reap generously (1 Corinthians 9: 6). Giving opens the floodgates (Proverbs 3:9-10) and is a blessing that is far greater than we could imagine (Acts 20:35).
#3 – There Is No Greater Cause On The Planet To Give To Than The Local Church. The only measure of success that matters for the church is a transformed life. In 2013 we celebrated 68 baptisms at Mountaintop (that’s up from 51 in 2012 and 38 in 2009). That’s an investment that makes a difference for eternity – I dare you to find anything else that promises that type of ROI! The local church remains God’s plan for bring His hope to the world and I am convinced 2014 is going to present amazing opportunities to join in God’s plan. In fact I’m convinced 2014 is going to be our best year ever!
Jesus said where our treasure is, that's where our heart is (Matthew 6:21). Why not take a moment to share your treasure and your heart by making a year-end contribution to the church you call home.
For those who call Mountaintop home, making a year-end gift is simple.
