Ask a farmer and he’ll tell you that mules can be stubborn. But none of God’s creation is as stubborn as mankind. Amazingly, even redeemed men and women try to resist His will. In this message we meet a prophet of God who was as stubborn as a mule.

Farmers know it’s really pretty simple: no seeds, no plants. No plants, no harvest. God set the laws of sowing and reaping in motion a long time ago. But these laws that govern agriculture also apply to financial giving. In this message we explore what Paul taught about generosity in his writings to the church at Corinth.

Wise money managers know the term ROI: return on investment—the bottom line when putting resources at risk. Christians have bank accounts on earth, but also accounts in heaven. They lay up treasures “where moth and rust do not corrupt.” In this message we’ll learn why investments in things eternal bear a return we cannot even imagine.

When a wealthy benefactor gives a few million dollars to a college, it’s always big news. But no one seems to notice a poor person giving a quarter to someone else in need. That is, no one but Jesus. His keen eye saw a lady entering the temple courts one day in Jerusalem. Will God ever commend you, like this woman, for giving all you have?

During financial hardship, it’s tempting to give less to God’s work. Many whose jobs are in jeopardy are burdened with debt at the same time. So, what should we do? In this message we learn how to honor the Lord no matter how empty our wallets are! The key is to realize that our use of money is one way in which we worship God.

It seems the world is reeling from crisis to crisis: Middle East turmoil, rising prices, and nation after nation facing insurmountable debt. Civil unrest is rampant. Meanwhile, politicians make promises they can never keep. All of these things can create a climate of fear in our lives.

After all the pain of this world is over, the people of God have a glorious inheritance awaiting them. Those who believe in Jesus will one day be glorified, bathed in the very glory of God Himself.

The government throws billions of dollars at problems that money cannot solve. Despite education funding, the world still seems broken. Everyone is looking for meaning and purpose in life. There’s no doubt people need transformation, but only God can do that. The glory of God can change people from darkness to light.

One of the oldest books in the Bible asks a question that is still being asked today! In Job 14:14 we read, “If a man dies, shall he live again?” Life is not about riches or fame, success or failure. The deepest issue of life is what happens once it’s over. The glory of God makes it possible for us to face death with triumph.

Hurting is a part of life. Ask anyone in a cancer ward, facing a painful end to their life. No one is exempt from suffering. Sooner or later, we all experience it. But believers are promised that suffering for the sake of Jesus will be rewarded.
