Supporting The Work Of Jesus

After talking about the secret of contentment, Paul lets the Philippians know that he was grateful for the gifts that they sent to support his ministry. He wrote:

Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles. 15 Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; 16 for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid more than once when I was in need. – Philippians 4:14-16 (NIV)

As followers of Jesus, we need to support the work of Jesus. Ministry work requires ministry dollars. There are bills that need to be paid. Those who have devoted their lives to full-time service of the Lord need to be compensated. It is not an excuse for greed. Some churches and pastors take advantage of good people and their faith in Christ. Let’s be wise and discerning and yet faithful and generous toward the work of Jesus so that more people will come to know about the Lord.
