WE GIVE BECAUSE GOD GAVE

JOHN 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave...

what is stewardship?

FROM OUR STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE


What is Stewardship?

Managing something on someone else’s (the owner’s) behalf.

Synonyms: trustee, guardian, custodian, caretaker, keeper.


Christian Stewardship is a celebration of God’s blessings, recognizing God as the Creator and Giver of all that we have and are, then serving Him as stewards of His gifts through our time, talent, and treasures to share the Gospel.


What is the purpose of Stewardship?

The heart of stewardship is the task of sharing the Gospel for the purpose of making disciples. Not only does it benefit the recipient, but also strengthens the faith of the steward. In short, the purpose of stewardship aligns with the mission of St. Paul’s: Strengthen the saved; save the lost.


What is the Stewardship of the Gospel?

Adam and Eve, the original stewards, fell into sin and shattered their relationships with God, each other, and creation. Through his death and resurrection Christ redeemed the world and gave us the Holy Spirit. In our response to God’s love and grace, we use the Creator’s gifts for His purposes and seek ways to glorify God. Stewardship is sanctification – the work of the Holy Spirit through us using our gifts as God intended.


How do we share the Gospel through Stewardship? 

  • Time: As members of the body of Christ we are called to make disciples of all nations. We can support our church by giving our time to help one (or several) of St. Paul’s outreach ministries. Share your time and help share the eternal joy found in God’s forgiveness, grace and love.
  • Talent: God’s stewards recognize that their lives are not solo performances but are personal responses to God’s grace, lived out within the community of faith. As the children’s song is written: “Hide it under a bushel-No!” As we have been blessed with talents, we bless others with our talents while sharing the Gospel and giving glory to God.  
  • Treasure: Just as God generously gave his only Son to die and rise so that we live with him, God calls us to give generously. In response to God’s grace and mercy to us, and through the Holy Spirit, we thankfully and cheerfully give back to his church. When we recognize that we have nothing except what the Lord entrusts to us, we can joyfully return a portion to the owner, our heavenly Father. If God is faithful in our eternal salvation, we can also trust him to provide our daily bread.  

A Stewardship Lifestyle

Stewardship isn’t about how much the steward gives or serves. It is about what the Lord gives and how the steward is called to share those blessings for the sake of those who don’t know Jesus. Stewardship is not a subcategory of the Christian life; it is the Christian life. It is a lifestyle rooted in Christ and lived out daily in prayer and thanks-living.
