Last Sunday was a hectic day as the lift on our Bus did not work but once we got to church we were ministered to by Linda & Larry. They brought us a inspiring message on how we are to keep working and pushing forward in our service to the Lord. I hope you that were there, enjoyed the messages as much as I did, if you were not there you can listen to both on the podcast.
This week I want to speak to you about why we should be giving back to God. We know that the government requires us to pay our taxes and has made rules to enforce this payment, but that is not the case when it comes to God. God does not demand our support he gives us guidelines as to what we need to do and reasons why we should but he does not force us to give back to him. God always wants our support to be voluntary and with a glad heart. The scripture verses this week are in Matthew the 22ND Chapter vs 15-22. In these verses the Pharisees are trying to discredit Jesus either with the Roman government or his followers. They ask him does he believe that taxes should be paid to Caesar? It looked like they had trapped Jesus, but Jesus saw what they were doing and said to them to give to Caesar what is Caesar and to what is God’s to God. What is due to God? There are many reasons we need to be giving back to God. I want to talk about these reasons and actually what is it we should be giving. Please join us this Sunday as we share with one another why and what we need to be giving to God.
We hope you are having a great week and hope you are praying for those we mentioned in our prayer request last week. We did speak to Anita this week and she is feeling much better, likewise Lisa says Jane has improved as well. Keep praying for those that God brings to your mind each day and always pray for BBT. Do good things this week and we hope to see you on Sunday!
We Love you so much,
Pastor David & Pris
