    Be Rich – Dollar Cost Living
    Series: Be Rich
    1 Timothy 6:17-19 and Mark 12:41-44
     
    When we hear the word "Rich" the majority of us don't think that means us. If we're lucky we live from paycheck to paycheck, and the next bill comes due right on payday. Our hope has migrated to hope in stuff and so we hoard what we have hoping to save our way to safety but wealth is so uncertain. Instead, we must commit ourselves to this declaration: I will not place my hope in riches, but in Him who richly provides. Watch what happens to your heart, and then watch God honor that faith by doing something extraordinary in our city, our nation, and, who knows, maybe the world.

    Be Rich – Side Effects
    Series: Be Rich
    1 Timothy 6:17-19; Proverbs 18:11
    The Apostle Paul provides a warning to those who trust in their riches: it’ll cause their hope to migrate away from God towards hope in their riches. But, are money and possessions good sources of hope? Today we’ll address the side effects of wealth and prosperity.

    Be Rich – Congratulations
    Series: Be Rich
    1 Timothy 6:17-19
     
    Paul gives an unusual command to Christians who are “rich in this present world,” that they should excel in the grace of generosity and service. We might suggest that this command is for someone else because we don’t feel all that rich. But, according to 99% of the rest of the world, we are rich. Even so, what is the opportunity for the Christian who is rich in this present world? Over the next few weeks, we’ll examine the remainder of Paul’s command to the rich among us.

    Hidden Figures – Father Donovan
    Romans 1:16
     
    Re-imagining and evangelizing in our day for the sake of the lost and encouraging the saved.
     
    Father Donovan believed that if people truly grasped the evangelistic strategy of Paul, then the world would have more Christians: “Instead of the 33,000 missionaries of the type we have known, if we had 1,000 men of the mind of Paul, convinced of the method of Paul, I wonder what proportion of the world would be evangelized.” This is exactly what Father Donovan did. He gave up nearly 20 years of his life to specifically share the Gospel from tribe to tribe in Africa. He even mapped out what tribes he would visit, how long he would be there, and how many years it would take him to cover so much ground.
     
    Evangelism is still part of the Christian tradition and Biblical mandate. Many see Christianity as the aggressive Billy Graham strategy of door-to-door and/or open-air preaching. Evangelism does not have to be that intimidating.

    Deuteronomy 8:1-18
     
    God uses obstacles, difficulties, and slow progress to shape us, just like he did with the Israelites on their 40-year journey. God is as concerned with who we are becoming and the journey itself as he is with the destination. What will we learn and how will we be changed by the journey itself?
     
    "One of the main lessons we learn during this stage of the spiritual journey is that God is not in any particular hurry to get us to the Promised Land. He is much more concerned about the transforming work he is doing in us to prepare us for greater responsibilities of freedom living." Ruth Haley Barton. Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership: Seeking God in the Crucible of Ministry.
     
    What are the obstacles, difficulties, and slow progress I've faced or am facing now on my journey? How have I responded to them? What might God be teaching me or in what ways might he be shaping me?
