scripture 2 Corinthians 8:1-24, 2 Corinthians 9:1-15

type Sermon
id 1123

In light of God’s ownership of everything, the Bible has a lot to say about money and giving. True giving must always be in response to recognizing we are the recipients of undeserved grace, and realizing we are mere managers of what God has given us. Unlike paying a utility bill, giving to the church should be a willing, joyful, and sacrificial practice.

This sermon reminds us that God is not disgusted at money itself, but He IS disgusted when it becomes the dominating devotion of one’s life. Do we, as God’s stewards, ever give until it hurts, or do we give out of our abundance? Does fear make us give because we have to, or does love make us give because we want to?

In what does your life consist? A man has come to Rabbi Jesus with an apparently reasonable request: to resolve a family dispute about inheritance, hopefully in his favor. Jesus responds by challenging him, and us, to re-orient our entire way of thinking about material things.

God doesn't need our resources to establish His kingdom, but He gives us the privilege of using what we have for His purposes. In this study from Mark 12, we meet a woman who illustrates through her sacrificial giving what it means to be "all in" for the cause of Christ.

What does the Bible say about those who have lots of money? In the fifth chapter of James, we find a stinging rebuke to those who misuse their wealth. Alistair Begg instructs those who have been blessed with fortune to stay humble, put their hope in God instead of their wealth, and share their resources with those in need.

Some Christians may feel guilty over the amount of possessions they have, especially since there are so many needy people in the world. Alistair Begg teaches us that earthly riches are an expression of God’s kindness, but it is the misuse of wealth that the Bible warns against. When we find security in our earthly treasures instead of our heavenly treasure, we have turned away from the only thing that will last forever – our union with Christ.

When covetousness takes hold of people, they will go to great lengths to secure their desires. Often this is done at the expense of those who are destitute and unable to defend themselves. Alistair Begg warns us that greed will not go unpunished and that money will not be a shield against God’s judgment.

scripture James

id 15903

“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” The letter of James is vital reading whenever the believer is tempted to be content with knowledge devoid of action, to cultivate the world’s friendship rather than God’s, and to tolerate disorder and selfish ambition. As we’ll learn, James shows us that the outward display of faith will find its roots in the inward transformation that has already taken place. These studies provide a forceful and timely reminder that our creed must be seen in our conduct and our attitude must display itself in action.
