Celebrating God's Faithfulness and Being Debt-Free, 1 Chronicles 29

Celebrating Gods Faithfulness & Being Debt-Free

1 Chronicles 29

 

  1. What God is doing at MCC is primarily for Him, not us.    Vs 1      
  2. Delight, not duty, leads to great God honoring sacrifice.  Vs 3
  3. Sacrificing together leads to ownership & a testimony to others.  Vs 4-9
  4. Walking Together as God leads produces enhanced worship.     Vs 10-17
  5. Asking to stay steadfast & to go into the “more” is the proper prayer after God mightily shows up.    Vs 18-22

The Elders are asking that we all prayerfully consider giving the monies that we were giving to “Debt Retirement” now to the “General Fund” so God can use us to honor His name in more ways until He returns.
