The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of the Christian is one that Seeks Spiritual Wealth. What exactly does that look like? Our Lord points us in the right direction with a series of parables. Once you find spiritual wealth, it is worth more than anything else in the world.
Life is full of choices. The life of the Christian is full of choices, but the hardest choice was the one that God made when he chose the world. He chose you because he loves you. All the other choices after that are in response to his incredible love for you.
This week we continue our stewardship series, a look at the family of believers. Last week we saw our identity – one of God’s children, a son or daughter of the King of the Universe. This Sunday we’ll examine what we do with our time and the struggles that go all with it.
When King Dave and his people had the opportunity to raise money and the necessarily supplies to build the temple, they responded. It was with joyful generosity that all the materials were gathered. David was never able to see the building completed. That was left for his son, Solomon. Join us this Sunday as we explore David’s heart and why he could be so joyful and generous.
Where your treasure is, there your heart shall be. I’ve misunderstood this phrase for years. It doesn’t mean – “Put your heart in the right place and then everything else will follow.” That’s not bad, but what Jesus is saying is more pointed – “Look where you put your money. That’s how you tell what’s really in your heart.” Think this is easy? Think again. Ask any teenager how hard it is to control the heart. Join us as we learn from our Lord how to turn our heart to him.
