Giving is one of the key ways that we worship at Oak Hill. God has given us His Son (Eph. 5:2), therefore, we give Him everything – including our money – as an act of adoration, trust, and honor (Rm. 12:1, 2 Cor. 9:6-12).
We honor and worship God when we give and utlimately we become more like His Son, Jesus. We give because:
- It increases our intimacy and directs our attention and heart to Christ. (Matthew 6:21)
- It increases our character, conforming us to Christ’s image as an unselfish giver.
- It reminds us of the true ownership of ALL of our possessions. (I Chronicles 29:11-12)
- It teaches us to trust and submit everything to God. (Deuteronomy 14:22-23)
- It works as our greatest weapon against the idolatry of money and its illusion of power in our lives.
