The only thing the church wants is your money!
The truth is that only about 9% of all Christians in America tithe.
God is the one who designed the giving process all the way back to Abraham.
Abraham gave for honor and obedience declaring that God is His source.
TITHING IS ALL ABOUT HONOR, OBEDIENCE, AND RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
When we start talking about tithing most preachers use Mal. 3:8 as a scare tactic to get people to give.
I want to show you today that TITHING is about RELATIONSHIP & HONOR and not fear.
Mal. 3:7-8, Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances And have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” Says the Lord of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’
8 Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.
WHAT IS GOD’S HEART?
DOES HE NEED YOUR MONEY?
HE SAYS IT VERY CLEAR IN VERSE 7 – THIS IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIP AND OBEDIENCE!
“Return to me and I will return to you”
What do you mean Jesus?
WHEN WE DO NOT TITHE WE ARE NOT OBEYING GOD AND HAVE CREATED A BREACH IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
Everything about God and man is about relationship not fear. God does not NEED your money!
Tithing is about you and I declaring out of obedience that Jesus is our source, not a man, no a job, not a company.
TODAY IF YOU DO NOT TITHE THEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS IS SUFFERING.
1 Sam 15:22, But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams.
IF YOU DO NOT TITHE, THEN REPENT BEFORE THE LORD FOR YOUR DISOBEDIENCE AND BEGIN THIS SUNDAY TO TITHE TO THE STOREHOUSE YOU ARE FED AT SPIRITUALLY.
The way to BREAK financial SUFFERING is to OBEY God and watch HIM BLESS YOU!
