In my going round in the cause of my evangelical ministration, I have discovered one major error that we members of Celestial Church of Christ commit. In fact, it is so grave that it will take the physical presence of God to impact us with the ability of doing it right.
Yes, I am talking about Tithes and Offerings. It’s an ancient believe that giving is worship, as we give, we find that sacrifice brings forth the blessings of heaven. When you give your tithe accurately, the windows of heaven open with such a blessing that you can’t even contain it. Malachi says so.
We Celestial Church members are a bit weak in being faithful with our tithes and offerings. And whatever you love, that is your weakness. The truth is, our church doesn’t need to consider how to modernise the act of tithing, because giving is a natural response of love. Our members home and abroad can try to embrace this act and see the beautiful result at the end. We can pay a honest tithe and give our free-will tithe and worthy offerings, according to our circumstances.
Your greatness is not what you have, it’s what you give. Tithing is an act of faith that shows that one has committed to God and the work of the Kingdom. Tithing releases joy, prosperity and favour in our lives. No one has ever become poor by giving. A lot of us have been keeping God’s money for ourselves and this has led to us being poor, proverbs 11:24, for it’s in giving that we receive.
Tithing is not about God needing your money; it’s about Him needing first place in your life. Deuteronomy 14:23 says the purpose of tithing is to teach us always to put God first in our lives. Proverbs 3:9 says honour the Lord by giving Him the first part. It doesn’t take anything from us, tithing is a law designed to bless all your income. Try to be obedient in doing it and see a new dawn in your life and business.
May God give us the spirit and heart that will obey His instruction in doing this religiously. Amen!!!
