A Note from Your Pastor
Thank you for your willingness to give to First Baptist Church Atlanta as we work to further the Kingdom of God. The Bible is very clear about giving. You may say, “Well, I really want to obey God.” This is just one part of it, but it’s a valuable part and here’s the reason. Jesus told His disciples to go into all the world, preaching the gospel to every creature. He said “you shall receive power after the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be My witnesses…”
I want you to remember that every time you give it’s not just a command, it is a privilege. It’s a privilege to make it possible for people to go and preach the gospel to all the world. Think about this: do you know why you are saved today? Because someone over in Europe came to the United States with the gospel and sacrificed. They struggled to make a life, but they spread the gospel so that you and I could be saved. We owe it to those who have yet to hear the truth. I pray that you will always give in that Spirit, by saying, “God, it is a privilege to take part in sharing the Gospel.”
