SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (Bailout - 4)

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 will do everything possible to NOT MISS the LAST WEEK of our “Generosity” Series this weekend 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… (4) YOURS?!

 

Are YOU really LIKE GOD… (Or…) Do YOU just THINK YOU are...?

 

Three Areas you're being "RIPPED OFF" in when it comes to your Finances…

1. PEACE!

2. SECURITY!

3. OPPORTUNITY!

 

The First Thief… GULLIBILITY!

-It's time to stop separating the BOXES in your life!

-GOD WANTS IN EVERY BOX… including your FINANCIAL one!

 

The Second Thief… GREED!

-Matthew 6:24… NO ONE CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS!

-Jesus says plainly… "You're either gonna WORSHIP ME… or YOUR STUFF!"

 

GREED is a condition of the HEART! Where we either worship the RESOURCE… or the SOURCE of the RESOURCE! (It ALL belongs to GOD anyway!)

 

Is your "SOURCE OF LIVING" stealing your "SOURCE OF GIVING?"

 

When it comes to GIVING… it's not about a TRANSACTION it's about a TRANSFORMATION!

 

You'll never accomplish DOING… if you can't first accomplish BEING!

(Meaning…) If you can't BE like Jesus (GIVE)... then you'll never DO what Jesus Did!

  

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

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 continue joining us for the remaining Two 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… (3) HE REIGNS!

 

WHY WORRY…?! Don't WORRY about what you think you NEED… because if you NEEDED IT… Jesus KNEW you NEEDED IT… before you even KNEW you NEEDED IT!

 

Too often… We spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME… asking GOD for an EXPLANATION for things… (When in reality…) He doesn't OWE US an EXPLANATION for anything!

 

All too often we want the SUPERNATURAL in our FINANCES… without the SURRENDER! It takes WORK for Faithful Financial Management!

 

You wanna see God get SUPERNATURALLY involved in your Finances…? SURRENDER them to Him!

 

Genesis 8:20… Noah didn't offer God an UNCLEAN ANIMAL… because he didn't want to GIVE GOD his LEFTOVERS!

 

Put God FirstWork HardGive Him Your Very Best… then watch Him PROVIDE you with EVERYTHING you NEED!

 

 

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