Greed or God: Choose this Day Whom You will Serve Part 4a
Wednesday, July 27, 2011

References: Matthew 6

Summary: Implied: you cannot serve zero masters because money enslaves (by coloring your vision). Nor can you have two masters (if you have earthly treasure, then God is not your master and you are not saved). The reason you cannot have two masters is not just because you will have to choose which to obey when they conflict, but that you will choose the one you choose because that is the one you love. The other one you will resent. So make sure money is not your master by subordinating it to God (by giving to the poor, giving in worship, and using the rest for the kingdom).

A Daily Journey Through The Attributes of God

What’s so Great About God?

It is not enough to learn true things about God.

It is not even enough to experience the benefits of His attributes. We must not be satisfied until our experience of each attribute has been profound enough to move our soul toward deeper love for God.

We must keep learning and experiencing what is so wonderful about each attribute until there is a response in our affections -sparks of actual joy, peace, delight, awe, fear of God, security, satisfaction of soul, comfort, courage, and all the other benefits

Scripture promises will come from the nearness of God’s favorable presence. Each one of God’s attributes is a single ray in the spectrum of the brilliant radiance of His glory. That glory is an ocean, and just one drop of that ocean, if you could just see it clearly, would be enough to delight your soul and occupy your faculties of praise for all eternity.

This book is a journal of how God has been opening my eyes the past few years to begin to see a glimpse of that drop.
