Questions For God: Compounding Joy

May 27, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

As we continue our series focusing on Randy Alcorn’s book The Treasure Principle, we have been looking at some “Questions for God” each week in our Wednesday Night Study.

The purpose of these “Questions for God”  is to prompt you to honestly approach your heavenly Father with uncertainties, fears, joys, and new discoveries. I encourage you to pray these questions to your Father, and note any responses He provides through His Word, the Holy Spirit, or wise fellow believers.

 

1)    Do I really believe that You have made me to be a giver? Am I convinced that I will feel Your pleasure when I give? God, help me to believe and to trust You enough to give.

2)    God, am I treating You as owner and CEO of “my” assets, or am I treating You merely as my financial consultant, to whom at best I pay a fee in the form of offerings?

Series– The Treasure Principle

Message– Part 3: Eyes on Eternity

This Sunday, we will continue our series called The Treasure Principle from the book by Randy Alcorn.

We will see that Jesus would often point people to think beyond the here and now- beyond the physical world- and provide an eternal perspective. This is certainly true when we consider how we use our money and resources.

To prepare, read Luke 16:1-15. As you read this parable, try to see what Jesus is saying to his disciples– and how this applies to us too.

My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will teach us in the sermons, our individual reading of The Treasure Principle, and our Wednesday night group time.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series– The Treasure Principle

Message– Buried Treasure

This Sunday, we will begin a new series called The Treasure Principle. Will will use the book by Randy Alcorn to help guide us through Biblical views on giving, generosity, money, and possessions.

These are important topics to each of us– and the Bible has a lot to say about them.

Make sure to pick up a copy of The Treasure Principle to read as we go through this six-week series together. Also, join us for our Wednesday night study where we will delve even deeper into these issues.

This week, we discover the value of the kingdom of God– and how we can respond to it.

To prepare, read Matt. 6:19-21 (this is, according to Randy Alcorn, the treasure principle), Matt. 13:44, and Matt. 19:16-26.

My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will teach us in the sermons, our individual reading of The Treasure Principle, and our Wednesday night group time.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: The Vision of Grace Family Fellowship: Who Are We?

Message: A Celebrating Community 2

In Luke 15, Jesus gives us a picture of God and how he views lost people. It is radical and scandalous that God would treat sinners the way Jesus say he does. It is also amazing how he treats the self-righteous religious folks. .It is so incredible, we should be celebrating all the time!

This message focuses on the Older Brother in the story of the Lost Son(s)

Series– The Vision of Grace Family Fellowship: Who Are We?

Message– A Celebrating Community 2

This Sunday, we will conclude our series asking the question: Who Are We?

In Luke 15, we see Jesus telling people about the heart of the Father for his lost children. There is a pattern: something is lost; the Father searches for it; the Father finds it; there is a great celebration in heaven.

This is, indeed, good news… For everyone who realizes they are lost and then found.

This week we see that some people never realize their “lostness”. This means they never accept the love of the Father and, instead, resent the grace he offers.

To prepare, read Luke 15– focusing primarily on verses 11-32.

Also, we will be celebrating the birth of Colton with Joseph and Kairi this Sunday. If you are able, bring in a gift card to present to the new mom and dad (Walmart, Target, etc.). My wife, Sara, will have a basket that we will use to hold the cards– so please give your gift card to her when you arrive.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
