Is it possible to be both good and rich?

E-mail Print PDF

1 Timothy 6:6-10 & Luke 16:19-31
(23-6-13)

A businessman visited by an angel was promised one request. He asked to see the stock market page one year ahead. Anticipating how much he’d make he studied the future list until he noticed his picture - in the obituary column. Suddenly his new wealth faded into insignificance.

Wealth’s a good tool, if used as God intended but its a dangerous trap if we don’t. Young John Wesley said he’d only known four men who’d not declined in faith by becoming wealthy. Later he corrected that and made no exception.

Giving our all to Jesus

Luke 7:36-50
3rd Sunday of Trinity
(16-6-13)

At the moment we’re looking at what the Bible teaches about money. We began last week with an Old Testament story of the Widow of Zarepath who was living at a time of great famine. Elijah told her to bring him some bread. She says that all she has is a handful of flour and a little oil with which she’s intending to make her son and herself one last meal before they die of starvation. Elijah tells her not to be afraid but to go and first make it for him and afterwards make it for herself because God will replenish what she uses.

A Christian Attitude to Money

1 Kings 17:8-16 & Matthew 6:19-21, 24-34
(9-6-13)

Last week we heard Jesus commending someone for their faith. Today we begin a short series of looking at how our faith can have an impact on our attitude to money. I admit to being someone who finds the subject of money very boring, (rather like sport!) but I know that for some people it is important and they put time and effort into thinking about it.

Real and Amazing faith!

Galatians 1:1-12 & Luke 7:1-10
Trinity 2
(2-6-13)

Are there sometimes conversations where you don’t understand what the other person, possibly a doctor, car mechanic or computer technician’s, is saying because they’re using words that are beyond you? Could even be a vicar! Unfortunately there are words we hear often that are never really explained. One of them could be ‘faith’? Christians say ‘have faith’ but what does the word really mean?

The Mystery of the Trinity

E-mail Print PDF

Romans 5:1-5 & John 16:12-15
(26-5-13)

Today I’m supposed to explain the mystery of the Trinity. How God is 3-in-1. Last week we looked at the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and hopefully that should help us today.

Many churchgoers, like I did 25 years ago - believe in God, I knew about Jesus but secretly wondered if He was as important as some said! Fortunately, some good teaching at new church helped that idea change. I realised who Jesus is and what he did for me, but, I still had no idea of what/who the Holy Spirit might be. This was definitely not for me!

Fortunately God, via His Holy Spirit, surprised me via Romans 8 and Romans 5:1-5
