Sermons on 1 Chronicles
An introduction to basic principles of stewardship. All is from God. The earth is the Lord's and all that is in it (Psalm 24:1). The tithe is our reminder of this truth. This sermon was used to introduce A Month of Tithing to respond for four weeks to the challenge of Malachi 3:10, "Put me to the test."
No Grinches Allowed: A Loose Grip Let God raise your standard of giving. 1 Chronicles 29:10-17 Andrew Bonaventura, Lead Pastor
A true Christian knows that all the money and the "stuff" he has actually don't belong to him at all. They belong to God, and God has permitted him to use them for a while. He is just taking care of them on His behalf.
If you were to stop and think about it, what does worship mean to you? In this sermon we see just how much King David teaches us about real worship...
Perhaps the greatest fund-raising effort in the history of humanity took place when King David called the people of Israel to bring their offerings for the building of the Temple. Some rich and powerful elements for giving are given to us in this narrative.
Pastor Jared preaches on our need to consecrate ourselves to the Lord. Would you be sanctified entirely?
King David made a great statement in 1 Chronicles 29:3 when he said, "I have set my affection on the house of my God." David had a desire to build a house for God. That did not fall to him, but to his son, Solomon. Yet David's love for God's house was not contingent on whether or not things were going his way or conditional on whether or not he got his way. Our church buildings and property--they were not built for us. Our church lands and facilities belong to God. The church is for God. In this message, Dr. Merritt follows David's example as he asks what a life looks like whose affection is for the things of Christ and His church. If Christ loved the church and gave His life for it (Ephesians 5:25), what does that mean for us today as a body of believers? What is our responsibility to the body and how is our church (physical location) a part of that?
