“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son” Grace is the spirit of giving.

Quiet your mind, and open your heart as you use the song “I Give Myself Away,” by William McDowell to lead you into worship.

This week’s message is based on Matthew 10:40-42.

Compassion is essential to being who we were created to be. God’s compassion is seen in the giving of his one and only son; Jesus’ compassion is seen in his life, teaching, healing, and sacrificial death on the cross. Read John 13:34.

We are to be a giving people. Read Matthew 10:8

  • give to those in need
  • give to the work of God

Connsider the words of the song “Freely, Freely,” sung by the Maranatha Singers (Feel free to sing along!).

No gift given to the needy, or given to the church is ever done in vain. None of it will be lost or wasted. God will use it and bless the one who gave it. Read Proverbs 19:17, 22:9; Matthew 25:45; and Hebrews 6:10

Whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water... will by no means lose his reward.
