Serving = Tithing

September 8, 2010


On Sunday evening, we will be continuing our series called Lessons in Service from the Life of Abraham. This week, our sermon title is “Serving = Tithing”.

This sermon is about serving God by making God #1 in our financial lives. Not just using our money in ways that glorify Him, but becoming the kind of people who yield control of our finances to Him by asking Him what we are supposed to give, and then simply giving it first.

This week, we will explore these 3 truths:

1) God has given us everything! We serve by giving back a portion of what we have received.

2) God asks for our first fruits–the first things we produce or earn. This principal is consistent throughout Scripture.

3) God invites us to tithe as an act of love. He doesn’t “need” or even “demand” our money. God knows that our spending decisions both reveal and reinforce where our affections are. “Where your treasures lie, there your heart will be also.”

Come and join us on Sunday at 5 PM as we CONNECT in shared space at 5413 Blue Ridge Cutoff, and bring a message called “Serving = Tithing”.

Feel free to take a “sneak peek” at the Scripture passage for the week.
