Better to give

In the words of Jesus, ‘It’s better to give than receive.’

The last two weeks has been a great week of giving. Thanks for supporting our partners from Turramurra; thanks for helping put on gospel outreach events in our towns; thanks for inviting friends and family; and thanks for praying for God’s grace to be known and received.

The Christian life is about giving. Today in Romans 12:1 we see why this is so crucial: ‘Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.’

God’s mercy in the Cross of Christ means everything we have is set-apart (holy) for giving so that God might be pleased.

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
