Proverbs 3:9, “Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops.”
Throughout this series, “Piece of Cake,” we have heard about the 90-Day Challenge (www.FellowshipChurch.com/90-day-challenge). This challenge is truly exciting, because it is about more than just money. It is about honoring God!
To honor something is to give worth to it. The Bible is very clear in telling us to honor God with the tithe, the first ten percent of our income. Because by bringing our tithe to the local church, we give God the honor He is due.
Honor is also about promoting or making someone known. That’s what Fellowship Church is all about – making Christ known to the world around us! So when you bring your tithe to Fellowship Church, you are partnering with the ministries that God uses to bring about life-change. What can be more exciting than that! Every time a life is changed through Jesus Christ, God is honored. His name is made known and promoted. So honor the Lord with the first of all your income, and make the name of Jesus known!
Throughout today, expect God to give you opportunities to invite people to church this weekend. Be on the lookout and when you see that person, don’t hesitate.
Dear God, right now I pray for You to use me to make Your name known. Grant me opportunities to invite people who are far from God to come to church this weekend where they will encounter and come to know You. Then give me the right words to say to them to bring them to You. In Your name I pray, Amen!
