2017-End of Year Giving

It is indeed a privilege to get to do the ministry that God has called us to.  Make no mistake, it is hard and has its challenges, but there is nothing better than doing exactly what you know God has called you to do.

Many of you know this, and many of you do not.  The vast majority of our income comes from the financial generosity of those who give to our ministry.  We have churches and families and businesses who believe in what we are doing, and they contribute financially to our ministry monthly, quarterly, or annually.

I said the following last year, but I feel the need to say it again.  When it comes to giving money to a ministry, people think all kinds of different things.  I know that there are many who have abused this, but this is not how we do things at all.  Our ministry falls under the umbrella of our local church, and we have financial accountability on what our salary, etc. looks like.

We are trying to raise more ministry money for 2018.  God continues to use our ministry to help men, students, and families experience freedom from idolatry (specifically sexual sin) through the truth of the Gospel.  As you consider your 2017 end of the year giving, we would ask that you prayerfully consider giving to our ministry.  Please note it will be a 501c3 tax deductible contribution.

Majestic, Messiah, Master, Mission (Master-Part 8)

I have been blogging about this for a large portion of 2017.  Quick look at the main points of what I have blogged:

God is MAJESTIC!  God is MESSIAH!  God wants to be MASTER!  God wants us to live on MISSION!

Last week we looked at this:

If Jesus is our MASTER, then we will walk in a worthy manner.  Colossians 1:10 tells us this:  “Live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.”  If He is MASTER, then we will indeed walk in a worthy manner.  We will please Him.  We will bear fruit.  We will grow in knowledge of Him.  How do we walk in a worthy manner?  Answer=By Grace Through Faith  Ephesians 2:8 tells us we received Jesus by grace through faith, and Colossians 2:6 tells us that just as received Jesus, continue to walk in Him.  If I want to walk in a worthy manner of Jesus (MY MASTER), then I must do it by grace through faith.  What happened to us when we received Jesus by grace through faith?  Understanding this helps me let grace reign and rule in my life.  When grace reigns, Jesus will be My MASTER.

Romans 6, 7, and 8 helps us understand this.  Romans 6 is the believer’s new identity in Christ.  Romans 7 is the believer trying to live out their new identity in Christ on their own.  Romans 8 is the believer letting grace reign as the Spirit empowers them to live out their new identity in Christ.  Instead of me writing more about this, just read Romans 5:20-6:14 and Romans 7:1-8:13 on your own, and you can listen to a sermon I did on this recently.

Here is the message:

Majestic, Messiah, Master, Mission (Master-Part 7)

I have been blogging about this for most of 2017.  Quick Reminder:

God is MAJESTIC!

God is MESSIAH!

God wants to be MASTER!

God wants us to live on MISSION!

If Jesus is our MASTER, then we will walk in a worthy manner.  Colossians 1:10 tells us this:

“Live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.”

If He is MASTER, then we will indeed walk in a worthy manner.  We will please Him.  We will bear fruit.  We will grow in knowledge of Him.

How do we walk in a worthy manner?  Answer=By Grace Through Faith

Ephesians 2:8 tells us we received Jesus by grace through faith, and Colossians 2:6 tells us that just as received Jesus, continue to walk in Him.

If I want to walk in a worthy manner of Jesus (MY MASTER), then I must do it by grace through faith.  What happened to us when we received Jesus by grace through faith?  Understanding this helps me let grace reign and rule in my life.  When grace reigns, Jesus will be My MASTER.

Romans 6 helps us understand this.  Instead of me writing more about this, just read Romans 5:20-6:14 on your own in conjunction with Colossians 1:10, Ephesians 2:8, and Colossians 2:6, or you can listen to a sermon I did on it recently.
