Getting paid to preach and teach God’s word.
Today I want to talk to you about what it says if you get paid to preach Gods word. In the world no matter what you do if you have faith in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit I truly believe he will find a way to provide! Yes, It is OK to be paid to preach and I have the scripture to back it up!
1 Timothy 5:17-18 King James Version (KJV)
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
What this is saying is let the people who are hard to work to preach and teach the truth word and doctrine of God get paid with double honour.
Matthew 10:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
What this is saying is pray for the sick that there is healing, Cleanse the sick, pray for the dead to rise, pray and cast out devils from people. You freely hear the truth just like you freely give to the church so that the preacher can keep doing God’s will.
Galatians 6:6 – Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
1 Corinthians 9:14 – Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
What this is saying is the Lord ordained they which preach the gospel not man so they should live of the gospel. Meaning they should live by his word, preach his word, get paid for a living if they are working very hard.
1 Corinthians 9:9-14 – For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
Acts chapter 4:32-25
32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any [of them] that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,
35 And laid [them] down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
1What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? 2For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. 3For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. 4Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 5But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 6Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, 7Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
Coming into a church is free and leaving a church is free but if you have a bible believing church that you love and want to support donations are very helpful. If you love your brothers and sisters in Christ you will put whatever the Lord laid on your heart to give to the church you are going to. It is free to come in and it is free to leave. You give money out of love for the Lord not because you have to! No matter what job you pick in life God will help provide!
