Sermons about Contentment
In this last sermon on Philippians, Paul shows how the gospel changes everything—our relationships, our finances, our perspective on what God is doing in our lives. In Jesus, God is bringing heaven to earth, and enabling us to experience heaven in our own lives today. He does this by providing for all of our needs in glory in Christ Jesus.
The secret of contentment is not circumstantial, it is always available! The secret of contentment is not natural, it has to be learned! The secret of contentment is supernatural, it is being confident that you have all you need, for whatever you are facing, because of the strength Jesus has made available within you!

Tackling the myth (or half-truth) that "God wants the best for you."
We're joining churches around the world to start the One Prayer series as we examine the theme God Is... Have you learned the secret to being content?

Why do we always want more? Our society teaches us that we need more and more stuff, but we must learn to be content with what God has blessed us with. We should realize that we don't own everything, that we don't need everything, and that we shouldn't keep everything. Join us as we take a look at Biblical contentment and generosity.
Why is it that we can know Jesus is with us, but still not feel content? And why can we know that Jesus helps people, but still fear about the future? In this message Pastor Steve digs deeper into God's promises about money as taught in Hebrews 13:5-6.
The readers of this letter to the Hebrews had experienced serious financial setbacks. Here in chapter 13 the author encourages them that nothing can happen to them outside of God's control, and that they can be content in the present because of God's promised presence, and they can be confident in the future because of God's promised help.
The reason I am preaching this passage is because we are so inclined to desire material wealth in our society that we soon can find ourselves shunning the Lord and His will for what we have twisted into a knew god. The god Mammon is a brutal and cruel taskmaster who will destroy all joy and happiness in what the true God has provided for us if we do not pay particular attention to these verses.
