The Whole Story: Broken Kingdom – Money – 1 Kings 19
Last week we learned about our need to live in the power of Christ instead of ourselves. This week we will be looking at the power of money and how it often battles for the place of God in our hearts. If our mind often revolves around attaining more money and how that will bring about happiness and peace, it is an idol. We forget that with Christ, we are richer than we think. This week we will learn what it means to live in the light of spiritual prosperity that God has given us, instead of living in the bondage of money and the emptiness it brings.
As we begin our time of worship through song at all three campuses, we will recognize the power of God and how he has rescued us from sin and death. We will rejoice in this through a new song called “You Came to My Rescue” by Passion.
With this in mind, we know that no matter what trials come our way, God is our rock. In the end, He has the last word. We will declare this through the song “Last Word” by Elevation Worship. We need not be afraid because when all is said and done, Christ has overcome the enemy and we can stand in that truth.
Even with knowing that God is in control, it’s still easy to have fear when life doesn’t go as planned. No matter what happens though, God strengthens us to overcome our greatest fears. He is our cornerstone and anchor within the storm. We will bring our praise and adoration to Him as we sing “Cornerstone” by Hillsong.
In response to the message, we will give our thanks to God for sending His son to take away our sins and for giving us eternal life instead through the song “Thank You God for Saving Me” by Chris Tomlin. So often, it’s easy to take for granted what Christ’s sacrifice means for us, but it is so important to remember that we are lost in darkness and have nothing without Him. It is through Him alone that we are saved and can live a life of freedom through grace. And in the end, we can rest assured that we can live forever with our Heavenly Father who loves us more than we can ever know.
