Trusting God

2010-sermon-slide-background-00_half
Sunday, I kicked-off a new series called Rich toward God. I asked you to consider four decisions to help you increase your trust in God when it comes to your finances.

1. Put your greed on notice.
Jesus said in Luke 12:15, “Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Decide that you will keep your greed in check.

2. Recognize your true source.
It wasn’t the rich man and his hard work that produced a good crop. It was the laws of nature that God put into place. 1 Chronicles 29:12 says, “Both riches and honor come from You…” Everything belongs to God. We are just temporary stewards.

3. Do your giving while you’re living.
Don’t do what the rich fool did. He died and his stuff passed on to someone else, without his approval or blessing. He refused to be generous in life, but he had no choice in death. One day, every single one of us will give away everything we have. Are you getting ready…while you have the choice?

4. Make God and His kingdom your top priority.
The problem with the rich man was that he left out God. He was rich toward himself but he wasn’t rich toward God. Jesus said in Luke 12:31, “But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.”

If you missed Sunday’s sermon, you can always go back and listen anytime at cedarridgecc.com. Don’t forget to read chapter two of the book, Rich toward God, this week.

It’s not too late to sign up for the estate planning seminar, Sunday night at 6:00 pm at our Broken Arrow campus. Over a hundred people already have. There is no cost for the seminar, but you do need a reservation.  Reserve your spot by emailing Janice Wilmoth at jwilmoth@cedarridgecc.com or calling the church office, 254-0621 and register with the receptionist.

Looking forward to celebrating with you this Sunday!
