Giving is a natural response to God’s generous nature. Not every believer is consciously aware of their union with Christ and therefore do not fully recognize their desire to give. The fall of man was deep; we were born selfish and it takes a lot of mind renewal to think generously. Believing is a believer’s work and selfishness is no longer our nature.
We pray for every believer to awaken to their generous nature for the benefit of all. Studies show that people who give are more connected to society. By doing something useful and helping others, they feel better about themselves. Reports indicate that giving stimulates the release of endorphins which improves health and self-esteem. From a Christian perspective, we already know it is better to give than to receive! Generosity simply mirrors our new nature.
We value Visionwriters International because it’s changed our lives. If this ministry never went further than our own heart it would have transformed our world. But Father is not content with that. He wants the nations and so we offer you the opportunity to contribute on any level you can to help us eliminate the ache of a silent God.
General donations are given at any time and in any amount…and they always add a spark to our faith. They are viewed as unexpected income and they remind us that God is full of surprises. If this is how you choose to help, then we rejoice over every response you make to His leading. We thank you from the depths of our heart!
Withworkers give financial support on a monthly basis. As a person senses a bigger connection with our vision, their desire to give increases. Becoming a Withworker serves their personal conviction to advance our mission. Helping others eliminate the ache of a silent God requires man-power, resource, finance, stamina, prayer, and a lot of faith. Solid monthly support helps us become more accessible to others. Withworkers are the predominant source of our income and the backbone of the ministry.
However you choose to give, we pray you continue to experience God’s character in your finances. Money is a language in itself and God speaks it fluently! We are known by how we make, manage and direct this commodity in our life. Become aware of the guidance of His nature within you and find the joy of giving for all the right reasons with none of the old compulsions.
Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. Be very sure now, you who have been trained to a self-sufficient maturity, that you enter into a generous common life with those who have trained you, sharing all the good things that you have and experience. Don’t be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others— ignoring God!— harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life. So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. 10 Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.
