Are You Ready to Let Jesus Be Lord Over His Finances?

July 15, 2018

Message Summary: We are so focused on earning money and related activities that it is easy for money and finances to become our god, thereby, violating the Second Commandment. If Jesus is Lord over all, as we are told in Psalms 24:1: “The earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.”, then everything is God’s. In James 5:1-3, the author of the Book of James provides insight into one who does NOT make God the Lord of their finances: “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days.”. Therefore, let God Be Lord over your finances, which really are His finances.

 

Today’s AffirmationI affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, JesusI AM RIGHTEOUS IN GOD’S EYESGod made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21).
