It is every MBBC member giving what God wants you to give. What’s it going to take to reach our goal? In two words: SACRIFICIAL GIVING. There is no easy way to do it. Of course, if every member of MBBC would give a little then it would be easy to do it. But let’s face it. Dozens of our families will take no part in this offering. As always, the burden must be borne by the minority to whom Christ really means something.
The goal of our salvation is to make us CHRIST LIKE. And we are like Christ when we are giving. SACRIFICIAL GIVING sums up the nature and work of Christ. To be like Him is to GIVE SACRIFICIALLY of ourselves and our means.
