Why We Give
In Philippians 1:3-5 the Apostle Paul expresses his thanks for the Philippians because of their partnership in the gospel.
This word "partnership" is elsewhere translated "fellowship". At the heart of true biblical fellowship is participation in the ministry the Lord has called us to.
Later, Paul describes what it was that the Philippians did in chapter 4:15. They provided financially for the physical needs of Paul and made it possible for him to continue to do the work of the ministry. This is an absolutely essential aspect of biblical fellowship even in the church today.
Thank you for your partnership in the gospel with North Lake Church for the glory of Christ. Thank you for being a cheerful giver.
We pray that you would abound in every good work as we together live in thankfulness for His inexpressible gift.
