One of the five avenues of first-day-of-the-week worship that is specified in the New Testament is that of giving back to the Lord. God Himself specifies both the time (every first day of the week) and the place (when the church is assembled together) (1 Cor. 16:1-2). The church is to engage in all five avenues of worship (singing, praying, communing, preaching and giving) together as a body, recognizing the joint-participation and fellowship aspect of each act of worship, including giving.
All Christians should “purpose” in advance how much to cheerfully give to the Lord (2 Cor. 9:7), and make whatever arrangements are necessary to be prepared on the first day of the week (this includes those who give by cash, check or electronic means). Purposing in one’s heart is something we do each week.
we now have the option to give electronically on Sunday,
“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart…for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7).
