Did you ever take time to really think about the powerful meaning of 1 Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” Did you notice that money isn’t the problem. Our relationship with money is the problem! How we view it, how we handle it and how we love it is the real issue. That’s the next subject that James tackles as we turn the page to James 5:1-6. As we read and study this passage this weekend, keep in mind that James is not condemning money, or even wealth for that matter. He is condemning the selfish use of money or wealth. Join us at GCC on Saturday or Sunday as we explore these truths and learn how to develop a healthy relationship with our money – a relationship that both pleases God and others including ourselves! I look forward to seeing you this weekend.
Welcome to a new series of sermons from the New Testament book of James called Making Faith Work. The first subject James tackles is the subject of trials – the trials of life. You may recall that we explored that very subject three weeks ago as we grappled with suffering in light of eternity. James 1:1-12 is an excellent sequel to that sermon and extremely practical, too. God inspired James to tell us how trials work when you are a follower of Jesus Christ. We’ll learn what role attitude, wisdom and money play in navigating life’s trials. I look forward to exploring God’s truth with you!
