The Treasure Principle

This short and to the point book is loaded with biblical truth about how God intends for Christians to be generous and joyful givers.  If you have ever wondered if the bible has something to say about how we use our money, read this book.  Be encouraged that God will always provide for our needs and give us grace to bless others.

A Jesus Honoring Partnership

A Jesus Honoring Partnership

This coming Sunday morning we are starting a 4 week teaching series called “Partnering Together for the Gospel:  God Gives, We Give”.

In this post I want to point out 3 characteristics that should be the aim of every gospel partnership that wants to honor Jesus.  I’ll do this by looking at a specific gospel partnership that existed in the Macedonian church written about in 2Corinthians 8.

Job is arguably one of the oldest books of the Bible, and smack dab in the middle of the book we find this powerful Messianic prophecy and the promise of life after death.

Job 10:25-26 ESV – For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will stand upon the earth.  And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God.

Jesus the Redeemer is coming, don’t forget it.

Mat 24:42 ESV – Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
