The “Why?” of Giving at New Life
At New Life, we believe that the grace of God – rather than guilt – should be the foundation for our giving. In 2 Corinthians 8:9, Paul writes, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you by His poverty might become rich.”
Jesus, as Creator and Sustainer of the universe, is rich. Yet, in His incarnation (taking on flesh and adding humanity to His deity) and in His death in the place of sinners like you and me, He became poor. He did this so that by faith we could take hold of the riches that belong to Him.
That message — the Gospel message — must be the foundation for all giving. If the Gospel is not the foundation for our giving, then giving will continue to be a struggle for us. We will hold onto “our” money until we feel guilty enough to give some of it away. Then, when we do finally give out of guilt, we will likely feel either bitter or self-righteous just a short time later.
But when the Gospel is the foundation of our giving, then we are eager to give generously based on Christ’s generous gift of forgiveness, justification, and adoption into God’s family by faith.
