Our radio topic for the month of March is grace and money.
I ask that you pray for us as we tackle this sensitive subject. For the most part, people are not open about their attitudes toward money or their use of money. So, I know we may be stepping on lots of toes out there.
But this is a very important topic specifically as it relates to the Gospel. Here is what I’ve learned in my life and in ministering to others – what we think about money reveals what we really think and believe about the Gospel.
Through the years, we’ve fielded many questions about giving and tithing. And we’ve produced several resources about New Covenant giving. But this is the first time we’ve taken a big picture, holistic look at what the Bible says about money.
Let me assure you, we are not straying from our core mission. Our hope and prayer in tackling this subject is to connect our listeners to the real source of contentment in life – Jesus Christ. Jesus said Himself that “you cannot serve both God and money” (Matthew 6:24). Sharing this subject from the foundation of God’s grace will help many see their true need for new life in Jesus Christ.
Let’s pray together that many will come to know Jesus and find true contentment in Him.
Also, I hope that you will help us financially this month. Your gifts to Basic Gospel minister to us and to the many people who tune in each day looking for help and hope. As Paul wrote in his second letter to the Corinthians, “This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God” (2 Corinthians 9:12).
To be specific, it takes $120,000 each month to carry out the Basic Gospel ministry. This includes air- time, internet streaming, satellite fees and production expenses. Your gifts provide the media platform that enables us to reach 150,000 people each and every day – people who need to know the love and grace of Jesus Christ.
Please give as generously as you can. To say thanks, we have a special gift for you, a new audio resource from Basic Gospel, Grace and Money.
I am very excited about this new resource. It will help you take a fresh look at your attitudes toward money and provide you a grace foundation to make wise money decisions. Request your copy by simply checking the box on the reply slip and returning it along with your gift to Basic Gospel.
Also, if you have questions you would like us to address on this subject, you can send them via email to bob(at)basicgospel.net. Of course, you can join us on the broadcast by calling 800-677-9377 during airtime.
And be sure to invite your friends to tune in.
On Monday, March 3, I will reveal what I think is the most important passage on money in the Bible. You may be surprised, but once you hear the explanation, I think you will agree.
We will address the following money issues as well.
- Money and WorshipMoney and the Heart
- The Prosperity Gospel
- Money Temptations
- New Covenant Giving vs. Tithing
I am really looking forward to what God has in store for us during the month of March. As always, thank you for standing with us. Your partnership is evidence, as Paul wrote, of the “surpassing grace God has given you” (2 Corinthians 9:14).
Together, let’s keep connecting people to the love of Jesus Christ. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
