Key Scriptures: Philippians 4:17-20 “Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit. I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.
Paul closed his letter to the Philippians thanking them for sharing and sending offerings to help him. They were one of the only churches to do so at this time. He had received their gift and expressed his thanks, stating that they were “a fragrant offering” and they pleased God as well. He also shared that their gifts would increase the fruit of souls won and reached and that would also credit to their account. In turn, they could count on God meeting all their needs through Christ’s unfathomable riches! Amen!
Faith Confession: I choose to be generous and give to the work of our Lord, tithes and offerings. I am thankful for fruit that will bring glory to our Lord Jesus. My God will supply all my needs if I am generous towards His kingdom.
