Author: Steve Swartz
The subject of financial giving to the church can create tension and anxiety if not understood from the scriptural perspective of the Christian's heart for Christ. In this theological treatment of giving, Steve Swartz examines the biblical basis for obedience in giving to the Lord's work, which is, ultimately, because of his love for and loyalty to Jesus Christ. The gospel of Christ compels the Christian to respond in gratitude for God's grace in salvation, and giving is one such tangible response.
