Interesting Great sermon ! I bet you all do have Gods grace working in your hearts! I love when people from the church want to serve even in simple ways and when that is encouraged! Not a lot of churches do this, they mostly reserve spots for their friends and family and take any and all service opportunities and pollute them with nepotism , even the most minute task can turn into to something discouraging.it‚Äôs a good thing people still live by the truth they claim to believe . I hope to visit you guys someday ! You sound like really solid church!

Tithing? In response to the previous question, I believe grace giving has replaced tithing, and is a heightening of giving compared to the Old Covenant. For example, the motive is heightened to "God's inexpressible gift." Grace giving is one element of New Covenant worship, which is a heightening of Old Covenant worship. The essence of New Covenant worship is the presentation of our bodies as living, holy sacrifices. Such worship is again motivated by "the mercies of God" (Rom 12:1).
Good Message On Giving Would you say that grace giving has replaced tithing? Or is tithing still required for the New Testament church?
