A Bigger House… a Nicer Car… Better Vacations… Wanting MORE isn't always BAD… but are we LOOKING FOR SATISFACTION in the RIGHT PLACES? Maybe this life isn’t all about HOW MUCH we have… but rather about WHAT WE DO with what we ALREADY HAVE?! Don’t miss the Second Week of our Generosity Series this week at COCBE RICH… In What Matters The Most! We have a Special Guest Speaker… SCOTT RIDOUT… It’s gonna be AMAZING!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (WK2) DECEITFULNESS IN RICHES

 

1 Timothy 6:17-18… Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to BE RICH in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

 

The WORLD wants YOU to SERVE MONEY... Don't fall for the TRAP of DECEITFULNESS IN RICHES! (Matthew 6:24)

 

MONEY promises what only GOD CAN PROVIDE!

 

God has blessed me with MORE than I Need! (So...) I will not trust in RICHES but IN HIM who RICHLY PROVIDES!

 

Do you know why WEALTHY PEOPLE are LESS GENEROUS than POOR PEOPLE?

Because POOR PEOPLE never place their HOPE in their WEALTH!

 

The CHIEF COMPETITOR with your Heavenly Father… IS MONEY!

The CHIEF COMPETITOR with your Heart… (Which is what God is after...) IS MONEY!

 

When your HOPE begins to fall for the DECEITFULNESS IN RICHES… Your WEALTH becomes a SUBSTITUTE FOR GOD!

 

 

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

Don’t miss out on our exciting New Series starting THIS WEEK at COCBE RICH… In What Matters The Most!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (WK1) GOOD NEWS / BAD NEWS

 

1 Timothy 6:17-18… Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to BE RICH in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

 

Good News… YOU’RE RICH! / Bad News… YOU’RE RICH!

 

It’s a SPIRITUAL IMPOSSIBILITY to be a FULLY DEVOTED FOLLOWER OF CHRIST…

and it NOT IMPACT YOUR FINANCES!

 

BEING RICH is not just about HOW MUCH MONEY you THINK YOU HAVE or DON’T HAVE!

It’s about… WHAT WE DOWITH WHAT WE HAVE!

 

When you’re the MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN THE ROOM… You should always use your INFLUENCE and your POWER for those who have LESS POWER and LESS INFLUENCE!
