Why We Do That
The Offering

 
Christians give because it is in their nature to give. Giving – “to confer the ownership without receiving a return”, or “to contribute without special compensation” (Webster).
   It is the nature of Christians to give because we recognize it is the nature of our Father to give, and we should gladly reflect that nature.
   John R.W. Stott wrote, “Jesus obviously expected his disciples to be generous givers. His words condemn the “selfish stinginess of many,” as Ryle put it…Generosity is not enough, however. Our concern throughout [the Sermon on the Mount] is with motivation, with the hidden thoughts of the heart. In His exposition of the sixth and seventh commandments He indicated that both murder and adultery can be committed in our heart, unwarranted anger being a kind of heart-murder and lustful looks a kind of heart-adultery. In the mater of giving He has the same concern about secret thoughts. The question is not so much what the hand is doing (passing over some cash or a check) but what the heart is thinking while the hand is doing it. There are three possibilities. Either we are seeking the praise of men, or we preserve our anonymity but are quietly congratulating ourselves, or we are desirous of the approval of our divine Father alone.” (John R.W. Stott, The Message of the Sermon on the Mount.)
   The fundamental reason we give is because we understand, and acknowledge, who God is. “God is the Creator and Preserver of all; God is the Giver of all good gifts. God is our Redeemer. We therefore owe our all to Him.” (Bishop V. S. Azariah). Worship means, “to ascribe worth”. We acknowledge who God is and His supreme worth by giving gifts. “Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name: Bring an offering, and come into his courts!” (Psalms 96:8).
   So, when the plate passes today you have an opportunity to actively, personally, and concretely engage in worship! Don’t miss out!
   

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in
Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us
our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not
into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine
is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.
Amen.

Doxology

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him, above ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

The Apostle's Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
