07.31.11 @ N.H.C.C “Act Your Wage”
This Sunday @ New Hope Christian Church, we will be discussing the American Economy and how it affects us. The message will be given by pastor greg and will be taken from The Dave Ramsey movement “The Great American Recovery”
This Sunday and for the next few Sunday’s to come, we will be discussing being good stewards of God’s resources. The title of this week’s message is “Act Your Wage.” It is based on the scripture from Proverbs:
Proverbs 21:20: “In the house of the wise are choice stores of food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.”
God wants us to live within our means and stay out of debt. Many of our money problems happen when we act like our government. We spend more than we take in, and then we fall into great debt. Our government borrows over 40 cents of every dollar. Many Americans are living in debt because we do not act our wage, and try to live beyond our means. It is time for the body of Christ to get out of debt so we can be a blessing to others. Dave Ramsey said:
A broke man can’t help anybody.
Living within our means a good life for us, and a life of blessing for others.
My friend and brother in Christ named James Williams mentioned that on August 2nd, unless the Lord comes back, the world will not end. God is still on the throne and in control. God owns it all and this debt crisis will not affect HIM.
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah. A Song for Alamoth.
1 God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
Music will include the following songs: I’m Gonna Sing, Sing, Sing, I’ll Fly Away, New Name In Glory, How Great Thou Art, and Come, Now is the Time to Worship.
Merle Haggard asks: “Are the good times really over for good?” The answer is no if the body of Christ gets out of debt and starts being a blessing. Enjoy the video,
See You There,
