Paul praised the believers in Phillipi for their financial giving. He wrote, " You yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first preaching of the gospel, after I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone; for even in Thessalonica you sent a gift more than once for my needs. Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account (Phil. 4:15-17)." They were assured that their "good work" of sacrificial financial investments in the Cause of Christ would reap spiritual benefits- "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus (Phil. 1:6)."
Your investment in the work of Bema Investments is crucial in facilitating an eternal impact in the lives of men and women created in the image of God. We hope our work at BEMA Investments and your giving are reflective of Paul's perspective - "For we must all appear before the evaluation seat [bematos] of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad." - 2 Corinthians 5:10
