"Honor and majesty are before him:
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people,
give unto the LORD glory and strength.
Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name:
bring an offering, and come into his courts.
O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness:
fear before him, all the earth."
Psalm 96:6-9
Worship Through Offerings
Today is another special Lord's day.
Again, we are given an opportunity to gather with fellow brother's and sister's in God's house
to receive a blessing and to offer Him our worship and praise.
Part of our worship is the bringing of our
regular offerings to the Lord.
For God's people this is a privilege and a joy.
Christian giving is not simply a duty that we perform
in connection with the worship service.
It's a very important act of worship.
We bring our tithes and offerings,
not just because funds are needed to keep the church going, but as a joyful response to the grace of God in our lives.
It's part of our stewardship ~
the way we use the gifts of God for His glory.
"And this they did, not as we hoped,
but first gave their own selves to the Lord,
and unto us by the will of God."
2Corinthians 8:5
The Macedonian Christians give us the key to worshipful Christian giving.
They knew the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and so they "gave themselves first to the Lord."
As we come into His courts with our offerings today,
let us also do it joyfully, willingly,
and as God has prospered us.
Paul refers to our willful giving
as a gracious gift of God.
And it is indeed!
Having received His love,
we too can give to the Lord
the glory due His Holy Name.


"I will worship toward thy holy temple,
and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth:
for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name."
Jesus is our One true source of joy!
