SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (BaLaNcE - 2)

(2) Reading The Fine Print

CELEBRATORS… I’m hoping and praying that God ‘messed you up’ as much as He did me last week in the first week of BALANCED! I hope some of you established your REFERENCE POINT and took the time to be… “KNOWING where your Money is GOING!” Please do EVERYTHING you can to NOT MISS this week (and invite a friend) as it will be a CRITICAL week in which we look closely at the Third Law of Balance - CLEAR OBJECTIVE! Spiritually-speaking… this principle is the KEY to finding BALANCE with your FINANCES! Truly understanding WHY we have any “STUFF” in the first place!

Below is a sneak-peak into a few of the ideas for Week #2 (Reading The Fine Print)…

To maintain CLEAR OBJECTIVE (Balance) with our Finances - we should always be asking... What's the ONE THING that we’re trying to DO with our MONEY?

CLEAR OBJECTIVE for our "STUFF"...

1 Chronicles 29:10-14 (Notice WHERE (WHO) the entire focus is!)

David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, O Lord,
God of our father Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from youyou are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks,
and praise your glorious name. “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.

EVERYTHING... Belongs To GOD!

EVERYTHING... Comes From GOD!

EVERYTHING... is Dispensed By GOD!

WHO'S "STUFF" IS IT…?

HONORING GOD with our "STUFF" has nothing to do with GIVING - it has everything to do with LIVING!

Have you ever come to a point in your life that you have surrendered your "STUFF" (Wealth) to God? Start here..."God... I wanna HONOR YOU WITH EVERYTHING! Please SHOW ME today HOW to do that?"

See You Sunday… Celebrators!!

SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (BaLaNcE - 1)

(1) Opening The Book

CELEBRATORS… Totally EPIC week at COC! Saturday PM Services officially launch in a WEEKLY form (Sequoia Pathway/5P) and we start a Brand New Series… BaLaNcE! I personally want to encourage you to do everything you can to NOT MISS A SERVICE with our New Series... BaLaNcE! GENEROSITY is one of God's favorite topics in ALL of Scripture and we're gonna take a 6 Week look at His thoughts on how we can turn our FINANCES into just that… A Spiritual Journey! I'm praying that through this Series you might finally realize that when it comes to GIVING FINANCIALLY... "It's not what God wants FROM you - it's what He wants FOR you!"

Below is a sneak-peak into a few of the ideas for Week #1 (Opening The Books)…

Three Laws of BALANCE… (The are closely connected to our FINANCES!)

1. Reference Point

2. Constant Corrections

3. Clear Objective

The LAW OF BALANCE (Finances) is relational to the LAW OF THE HARVEST...

I’m gonna SOW NOW… and I’m gonna REAPLATER (and…) GREATER!

The MORE MONEY YOU HAVE… the easier it is to BE OUT OF BALANCE… (and…) TO STAY OUT OF BALANCE!

MATTHEW 6:21… For where your TREASURE is, there your HEART will be also.

Wanna know where your “HEART” is? Look where your “STUFF” is!

LUKE 16:13… (Paraphrased) “No servant can serve two masters... ...You cannot serve both God & Money!” GOD vs YOUR “STUFF”… is a daily battle!

Jesus doesn't want to GET your Money - He wants to make sure your Money doesn't GET you!

Never Forget... It's not what God want FROM You - it's what God wants FOR You!
