SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (Bailout - 2)

main image

CELEBRATORS…

In a world that sees one corporation after the next crumbling… a National Debt that keeps rising… and you not knowing whether you’ll come home at the end of the day with a job or not… FINANCIAL SECURITY is most definitely a huge area in all of our lives! Leaving us often to wonder WHY our life is so chaotic… or WHAT we can do to stay afloat… or WHEN our BAILOUT is coming! Well… there is HOPE and it’s found in the most controversial subject of most of our lives… MONEY! I pray that you would join us for the remaining Three Weeks of our “Generosity” Series here at COC… called BAILOUT! Please come with an ‘Open Heart’ to hear from God and what He may have to say about your Finances! After all… when it comes to MONEY“It’s not what God wants FROM you… it’s what He wants FOR you!”

 

 

Below is a sneak-peek for this week… (2) WHAT DO WE WANT FOR OUR MONEY?

 

PRAYERFASTING… and GIVING are great tools to keep us BALANCED and DEPENDENT upon God!

 

Great FINANCIAL Questions…

-Is God FIRST?

-Am I CONTENT with my DAILY Bread?

-Is GOD leading me financially... or am I?

 

FASTING... If you want to be FREE from any form of BONDAGE - FAST from something you think 'You Can’t Live Without' and see what God does!?

 

For Jesus it’s not IF you FAST… it’s WHEN you FAST!

 

FASTING is a God-Given Tool to find FREEDOM in things that might be holding you CAPTIVE!

 

FASTING expresses that God comes FIRST - it shows an attitude of REPENTANCE - and it appeals to GOD for the NEEDS we have in our lives!

 

WHEN you FAST... do it SECRETLYHONESTLY... and with VARIETY before God!

(Restore your HUNGER for GOD… as opposed to your HUNGER for STUFF!)

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9A / 10:45A)

Well… there is HOPE and it’s found in the most controversial subject of most of our lives… MONEY! I pray that you would join us for this special Four Week “Generosity” Series here at COC… called BAILOUT! Please come with an ‘Open Heart’ to hear from God and what He may have to say about your Finances! After all… when it comes to MONEY“It’s not what God wants FROM you… it’s what He wants FOR you!”

 

 

Below is a sneak-peek for this week… (1) WHO’S ON FIRST?

 

When it comes to your MONEY/STUFF…

A Personal BAILOUT will occur… when your BONDAGE to your BLING… is BROKEN!

 

Jesus says in Matthew 6"WHEN… YOU… GIVE…"

-Jesus makes No Apologies and offers No Exceptions!

-Jesus EXPECTS His People to GIVE!

 

WHERE'S YOUR HEART?

-If you wanna know WHERE YOUR HEART is today Christian…?

-Matthew 6:21 says to… Look no farther than where your MONEY (Wallet) IS!

 

WHO (WHAT) ARE YOU SERVING?

-PROBLEM… We SEE it… gotta HAVE it… can't AFFORD it… so we FINANCE it!

-It's not a PROBLEM to have NICE THINGS… it’s a PROBLEM when those NICE THINGS have YOU!

 

Matthew 6:24… No one can serve Two Masters!

-It's humanly impossible to serve GOD and MONEY!

-Jesus said THAT because He knew the Biggest Competitor for your HEART would be your MONEY!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9A / 10:45A)
