Just about every Christian out there has listened to Christian radio stations at one time or another. No matter what kind of music you enjoy or where you live, Christian music can be a nice break from the other kinds of entertainment that are out there. Have you ever thought about how stations like Lift FM pay the bills?
Unlike your typical local station, Christian radio stations typically fund themselves through the contributions of their listeners and perhaps another smaller avenue. With all of the different causes that are out there, why should Christians feel the need to support the music stations playing Christian music?
Let’s talk about a few reasons why you should support these stations and how you can help.
CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE GENEROUS
Did you know that the Bible instructs us to be generous? There are many verses that teach us to care for the orphans, widows, and the disabled. In fact, Jesus even says in Matthew 25 that whatever we do for those in need, we are doing for Him.
“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit You?’
The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:37-40
We are also shown in the Bible that it is important to tithe to your local church (this comes first, financially). Generosity is not simply a money issue, however. Sometimes the best thing you can do to help someone is to offer your time.
There are many reasons why Christians are called to be generous, but one of the main ideas is that we shouldn’t be overly attached to the things of this world. If we see our every resource as a gift from God that He can use as He wishes, we’re more inclined to part ways with them if it means helping others.
You may be thinking at this point, “I understand taking care of the poor and helpless, but how does that translate to Christian radio stations?” There are many charities and other groups out there needing contributions as well, so it’s a fair question. At the end of the day, no one is asking you to prioritize one cause over another or anything like that. Where you give your money is between you and God. Do what you feel is right by Him.
Now that we’ve established the need for generosity, let’s look at some of the ways that Christian radio stations help believers
