We know that most of today's society have or have had a lack of contentment. It seems that mankind starves to have more , more, and more even after the fact that God says enough is enough. When you are content you are satisfied. Come join us tomorrow in worship as Tom continues his sermon series on the “FOUR C’S OF CHRISTIANITY. His focus will be on "CONTENTMENT" and will be taken from 1 TIMOTHY 6:6-11.
"But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness."
The love of money is the root of all evil, causing some to depart from the faith, piercing themselves through with many sorrows. The desire for money will deceive and ultimately destroy you. Paul outlines a three step process: (1) The desire for money; (2) The deception of money; (3) The destruction caused by money. The desire draws you in; the deception gets you comfortable and oblivious to the danger; the destruction polishes you off.
In our lives we are to find our riches in a life with God. We are to be transformed more and more into the image of Christ. It is a daily event. It takes a great deal of discipline. Our wealth will ultimately come out of our relationship with God. When we have that intimacy, then we would not trade that for all the money in the world, because intimacy and communion with God is priceless. That is why the greatest comment that can be made to us is the one Jesus will tell us when we join Him in heaven, "Well done good and faithful servant."
Come join us tomorrow at First Christian Church! Invite someone to come with you.
