Keeping distance from Christ

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7 ESV)

При сем скажу: кто сеет скупо, тот скупо и пожнет; а кто сеет щедро, тот щедро и пожнет. Каждый [уделяй] по расположению сердца, не с огорчением и не с принуждением; ибо доброхотно дающего любит Бог. (2-е Коринфянам 9:6-7 Russian)

Hallelujah Oh LORD our God ~ dear Heavenly Father, from the depths of our hearts we express our amazement that the Maker of the heavens and earth counts us worthy to become your children by wholehearted faith in your beloved Son. Open the minds eye of those who prefer to keep their distance from Christ as Lord because they prefer the pleasures of sin above the joys of the higher spiritual experience of belonging to Christ with positive hope of eternal life in indescribable places that Christ is preparing for those who love and obey him. Bless everyone abundantly who choose to give bountifully to the work of the Church in spreading the Gospel message to all the world and doing deeds of kindness that honor Christ our Lord. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
