What Does a Campus Missionary Give?

By Web Team | Go

Most people believe that they work hard for what they get and have a right to do as they please with their money and possessions.

Not surprisingly, many get uncomfortable when the church talks about giving. And God has a lot to say on the subject. After all, it is His nature to give.

Jesus said, “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son” (John 3:16)

Giving is at the foundation of Christianity. Without God’s gift, we would have no hope. Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice by giving His life for us: 2 Corinthians says, “You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.”

Jesus expects his followers to be givers, not only with money but in every aspect of life. The primary motive behind giving should be love—for God and Paul said it this way: “If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have nothing” (1 Cor 13:3).

You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.

Giving allows us to participate in God’s purposes. Before Jesus left the earth, He gave His followers a final command: “Therefore, go and make disciples the nations” (Matt 28:19).

This presents a huge task that we could never accomplish on our own. We must rely on the power of the Holy Spirit, partnering with other Christians to ministry at home and around the world.

Supporting missionaries—those who take the message of Jesus to people in other countries, communities, or cultures—is a way to obey God and connect His purposes worldwide.

Christian missions is not a task for a select few serving in remote parts of the earth. Missions is an adventure for the entire church, and your contribution valuable and necessary.
