Steward Tips by Pastor John Avanzini

A Picture of Dr. John Avanzini

Pastor John Avanzini teaches us steward tips:
At this very moment, you are holding in your hand 156
offertory teaching outlines that really get the job done. Like
all busy pastors, no doubt you sometimes find yourself brush-
ing through your Bible at the last moment to find a verse or
two for the offering. Strange as it may seem, this important
part of the service often receives only a fleeting thought in-
stead of the depth of explanation your precious people need
to enter the good life God has planned for them.

If you will quickly thumb through these pages, you will
find that the teaching outlines are short and to the point, as
well as being divided into weekly subjects. And best of all,
t they are local — church oriented.

John Avanzini teaches about the importance of tithes
The importance of systematically teaching about tithes
and offerings is easy to see when we realize the great emphasis
God places on these subjects.

" The tithe . . . is the Lord’s: it is holy unto
the Lord." -— Leviticus 27:30

If the tithe is holy to the Lord, it most surely should be
holy to His children.

John Avanzini teaches us that God wants us to be blessed
I will not spend any time trying to convince you that
something is wrong with the financial condition of God’s
people. God’s Word is very clear that God wants His children
to be financially blessed.

"T he blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and
he adds no sorrow with it." -— Proverbs 10:22
While it may be God’s desire to bless us, it is obvious
that most of His children don’t walk in the financial abun-
dance He planned for them. The consequence of this short-
coming goes far beyond the impact it has on the personal
finances of His children. It goes to the very heart of world

". . . Whosoever shall call upon the name of
the Lord shall be saved." —- Romans 10:13
While the Word of God states clearly that the price of
salvation has been paid in full by our Lord’s death on Cal-
vary, the cost of delivering the gospel to mankind is still due
every time it is preached.

". . . how shall they preach, except they be "
sent?. . ." -- Romans 10:15
