Paul commended the churches of Macedonia because they were able to give beyond their ability. How is that possible? The answer is to learn to give by faith.
In the mid-1950, a Canadian Pastor, Oswald J. Smith, started to promote faith giving for world evangelization. He popularized mission conferences and an annual challenge to churches to do more to send the Gospel to the regions beyond. This plan, Faith Promise Giving, has become the foundation for missionary giving for many churches today.
It is important that you read each verse found in these devotions and ask the Lord to help you apply the truth found in each lesson. It is important to pray for understanding and a willing heart to be challenged by Faith Promise Giving. Ideally, this devotional booklet should be used during the four weeks before the Faith Promise Commitments are made.
Hebrews 11:6 says, But without faith it is impossible to please Him. Every believer should have a desire in their heart to please and serve God. As our faith increases, our spiritual life should prosper. Faith Promise is more about building believers than it is raising money.
James 2:18 says, Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works. The reality of our faith lived through our lives speaks much louder than words that are not followed by actions. Faith Promise can change your life. Please consider taking this step of faith in your life!
