Sermon Series: Essentials

No other New Testament book challenges God’s people to live like God’s people the way the book of James does. Yet amidst all the practical wisdom, James makes one thing crystal clear: a life for Christ is not just a private, personal endeavor. True living for Christ is done in community, too – it’s the Church learning how to be the Church. And that’s more than just a nice idea. It’s essential.

It's Normal

When it comes to our Sunday offering, what is "normal" giving? Normal giving is what we are able to do just in our normal everyday lives. It doesn't involve any real sacrifice or reliance on God to make it happen. Biblically, we would say that normal giving begins with tithing. Since tithing is the moral positioning of our material lives in front of God. Tithing is when we allow God to lead us at the most basic material level - how we live. So, because full devotion to Jesus Christ is normal, tithing is actually normal giving. But even in our tithing, as we see, God promises to bless us beyond measure. God is not promising to make anyone rich if they tithe. But He is promising that when we live obediently in our material lives, God will bless us beyond our ability to contain it. And you will be able to tell how He is blessing you.
