Philippians 4:10-19

The church budget may seem like an unlikely place to search for opportunity.  However, we need to be reminded that the church is God’s plan for reaching His people.  As we consider the plans He has for us for this year, may we rediscover the miraculous nature of His provision.

      I.         Missional Generosity Launched the ChurchPhilippians 4:10-13

Giving is not about the gift, it is always about the blessings conferred to the giver.


There is spiritual power in giving!

     II.         We find Opportunity Through Allocations Philippians 4:14-16

Paul’s summary statement reflects his confidence in the benevolent will of God to provide for the needs of His children.


God is preparing ME for something…
