Sermons about Stewardship
Our perseverance should not be motivated by the potential for personal advancement, but rather it should be demonstrated by serving others the way that Jesus served others. A truthful understanding of God will bring about the positive and productive personal sacrifice of our lives to Him. Special Music By Charlotte Focht

It is not always easy to live simply. It takes effort. We extend the effort because movement towards the simple life is a key to happiness and contentment. This is not only sorting our stuff or looking at our calendar, but the role these play in our lives. The simple life is freedom from and freedom to! God wants us to be free.
Introduction The Apostle Paul collected money to take to struggling Christians in Jerusalem. This was an important project to Paul, showing up multiple places in the New Testament. In today’s passage Paul encourages the Corinthians to follow through on their participation. In the process, he helps us understand the role of giving in the life of the Christian.
If you live here in the USA, whether you realize it or not, you are among the wealthiest people on planet earth. And understand this, God is the one who has given you this wealth. What an amazing privilege we have, but with this privilege comes responsibility. As believers this passage makes it plain that there are attitudes and actions we need to employ to be wise stewards of the wealth God has entrusted to us. Listen and be challenged to wisely use your wealth.
Our stewardship is not a matter of raising money for the budget, but is an opportunity to give back to God for all that he has done for us. When we give, we share in the joy of being a blessing to others for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Faith is often “caught” by those who see the impact of faith on the lives of people they love.

While worship is a central act of the faith family, growth in discipleship requires digging into the scriptures and engaging with others. RUMC’s classes and small groups for all ages nurture growth in discipleship.
