Investing In God’s Global Fund (Missions)

“We must support believers who go on trips like this so that we can work together with them in spreading the truth.” 3 John 1:8 (GW)

God wants us to use some money to take the Good News around the world! We invest in eternity every time we use money to bring others to Jesus.

When you save to go on a mission trip, that’s an investment in God’s Global Fund. When you help others go on mission trip, that’s an investment in God’s Global Fund.

This also includes using our money to encourage our friends to trust in Jesus (Luke 16:9). Imagine when you die and get to Heaven, your friends will welcome you there and say, “Thank you for investing in me. I’m in Heaven because of you! I’m not your friend for life; I’m your friend for eternity. I’m in Heaven because you cared enough. You bought me a Bible. You bought me a ticket for an event. You gave me a Christian book.”

Others will say, “You spent your money to help spread the Good News to my village, even though you’d never seen us before. Because you gave, I’m now a follower of Christ, and I’m in Heaven because of you.”

Helping others find Jesus is the highest use of your money. How will you invest in God’s Global Fund? Will you go on a mission trip or provide funds so someone else can go on a mission trip? Will you give so that your friends will hear about Jesus?
