Stories, thoughts and reflections on the Bible from the WSFC Staff.
“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
1 Chronicles 29:14
This passage was taken from a prayer that David prayed as he gathered resources for his son Solomon to build a temple of worship to God. David was not called to build the temple, but he was graced to give and to gather other givers. And in the presence of those people, he reminded them (and in turn, reminds us) of this: All that we do and have is a gift from God, and everything we give was His to begin with.
As David reminded the people of this, it inspired that current generation to build what would ultimately help the next generation draw near to God. The current generation would be able to reap a benefit from it for a moment, but the bigger blessing would be the ability to see future generations experience God’s presence from an early age.
That is the season we at WSFC have in front of us. To build more so we can gather more to worship. We’re maximizing our space so both the current generation and the future generations of our church can encounter Jesus. We each get to be a part of this.
Join me as we take the next few week to seek God on how to partner with the rest of our church; partnering together not just to build more rooms, but to create more space for more people to have life changing encounters with God’s presence as they give their hearts and lives more fully over to Him.
We are in exciting times where we get to give back to God what was always His and watch as He pours out even more into our church.
