God is at work at FBC McAlester! This past Sunday we experienced the joy of salvation and a family joining with us through membership. God truly is adding to our church weekly. He has given us a great vision for 2019 and our best year of ministry is before us. I want to encourage you to consider how you are going to serve Jesus through the ministries of FBC this year. What gifts has God given to you to use for His Kingdom? What has He placed in your bag of responsibility that you can multiply for the greatest Kingdom impact? What resources has He given to you that you can give away?
On Sunday mornings for the next two Sundays we are continuing our look at the Scriptures calling us to recognize how everything we consider ours is really His. We have because He has given. Therefore, we give freely because it does’t belong to us anyway. We presented everyone on Sunday morning with a Generosity Ladder. Each of us is located on this ladder in some capacity. The question for each of us is how can I take one step up? The steps on this ladder are as follows:
Step 1: First Time: I have not given to FBC McAlester before now.
Step 2: Occasional: I give to FBC McAlester but not consistently.
Step 3: Intentional: I give consistently to FBC McAlester but less than 10% of my income.
Step 4: Tithing: I give 10% of my income to FBC McAlester.
Step 5: Extravagant: I give beyond my tithe to FBC McAlester.
In the coming weeks I will be asking you take the next step in your commitment to giving back to the Lord through our local church, FBC McAlester. Please be in prayer concerning where you are and how the Lord would call you to take one step forward! I am excited to see the fruit of this time TOGETHER!
I Love You, Church!
