In light of God’s ownership of everything, the Bible has a lot to say about money and giving. True giving must always be in response to recognizing we are the recipients of undeserved grace, and realizing we are mere managers of what God has given us. Unlike paying a utility bill, giving to the church should be a willing, joyful, and sacrificial practice.

This sermon reminds us that God is not disgusted at money itself, but He IS disgusted when it becomes the dominating devotion of one’s life. Do we, as God’s stewards, ever give until it hurts, or do we give out of our abundance? Does fear make us give because we have to, or does love make us give because we want to?

In what does your life consist? A man has come to Rabbi Jesus with an apparently reasonable request: to resolve a family dispute about inheritance, hopefully in his favor. Jesus responds by challenging him, and us, to re-orient our entire way of thinking about material things.

God doesn't need our resources to establish His kingdom, but He gives us the privilege of using what we have for His purposes. In this study from Mark 12, we meet a woman who illustrates through her sacrificial giving what it means to be "all in" for the cause of Christ.

“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” The letter of James is vital reading whenever the believer is tempted to be content with knowledge devoid of action, to cultivate the world’s friendship rather than God’s, and to tolerate disorder and selfish ambition. As we’ll learn, James shows us that the outward display of faith will find its roots in the inward transformation that has already taken place. These studies provide a forceful and timely reminder that our creed must be seen in our conduct and our attitude must display itself in action.

As we view culture unraveling before our eyes, some are tempted to throw up their hands in despair, while others plunge headlong into political activism, believing that to be the answer to our problems. We must, however, affirm the priority of the proclamation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, by which the lives of men and women are changed. For this reason I'm excited about presenting these studies in 1 Timothy. Here we find God's purpose for His people. He has planned from all of eternity to redeem a people that are His very own, in order that ...

Our check stubs speak volumes. How we use our money says something about our commitment to Jesus Christ, and this is especially true in the realm of our giving. But what biblical principles should govern our approach to this matter? Are Christians under an obligation to tithe what they own? How should we prioritize where we put our resources? In this series, Alistair brings the teaching of the apostles to bear upon these issues. Every discussion about our giving must begin with the fact of God’s giving to us, he says. Therefore, the attitude that we should have toward giving ...

Drawing from Paul’s practical encouragement in 2 Corinthians 9, Alistair Begg reminds us that although generous giving brings its own rewards, this should never be the incentive for our generosity. Because giving is an expression of our faith, it should be worked out privately and prayerfully. In this way, we can give cheerfully and God will be glorified.
