The reason I picked Chapter Four, Verses 1 and 2 of First Corinthians as the foundational verse of our ministry is because I believe that before we consider our financial stewardship, we must first come to the realization that God calls us, as believers, to be stewards first of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul reminds us, as stewards of the gospel, that it is required by God that we would be found as faithful stewards. I believe that all of our financial stewardship – the stewardship of what God owns and that we have a responsibility to manage, is based on the fact that in everything we do, we should be endeavoring to be good stewards of the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of the ways in which I believe that God has entrusted us to do this is through the giving of our financial resources. After all, we cannot all be teachers and preachers, evangelists, missionaries, or pastors. But, we can all give to those ministries which are proclaiming the gospel, either directly or indirectly, and using their resources to grow the Kingdom.
