CCh - Counsels for the Church (1991) Chapter 48—Counsels on Stewardship

To those who love God sincerely and have means, I am bidden to say: Now is the time for you to invest your means in sustaining the work of the Lord. Now is the time to uphold the hands of the ministers in their self-denying efforts to save perishing souls. When you meet in the heavenly courts the souls you have helped to save, will you not have a glorious reward? {CCh 281.1}


Let none withhold their mites, and let those who have much rejoice that they can lay up in heaven a treasure that faileth not. The money that we refuse to invest in the work of the Lord, will perish. On it no interest will accumulate in the bank of heaven. {CCh 281.2}


The Lord now calls upon Seventh-day Adventists in every locality to consecrate themselves to Him and to do their very best, according to their circumstances, to assist in His work. By their liberality in making gifts and offerings, He desires them to reveal their appreciation of His blessings and their gratitude for His mercy. {CCh 281.3}


What an experience it would be to meet those in heaven whereby you helped lead to our Heavenly Savior. That will be our glorious reward. This reward is available to all, including the ministers of the church. So, if you love God and have means, the time is now to use your means in sustaining the work of the Lord. Your money will fail on earth, so store up your treasures in the bank of heaven. We can show our appreciation and gratitude for God’s blessings and mercies through our gifts and offerings. We are to do our best to help in furthering the work of salvation. By our efforts, perishing souls can be saved. Amen.


Our Father, which art in heaven,

We thank You for giving us this honor and privilege to invest our means in sustaining Your work. To be able to assist in carrying out Your plan of salvation that perishing souls may be saved. We thank You for the blessings You continue to bestow upon us, and the blessing we will receive when we meet those in the heavenly courts which we helped save. May our gifts and offerings allow the continuation and furthering of Your cause. We are sorry and ask for the forgiveness of our sins. Keep us faithful in our giving. We thank You and praise You. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
