Sunday 07.31.16 (learning contentment)

This Sunday we’ll take a look at what Paul taught about wealth and riches in 1 Timothy 6. It’s when we find contentment with what we have in Christ that we are then able to use our wealth wisely. Then on Sunday night, we are back to our normal weekly schedule and will continue our I Will study. Hope to see you there!

Schedule
@945 Small Group / Sunday School for all ages
@1045 Worship Gathering
@6pm I Will study in church library–Chapter 4, “I Will Serve”

Sermon Notes
Learning Contentment ~ 1 Timothy 6:6-19

  • Learn to be content, and not jealous or greedy, by pursuing God and godly character (6:6-16)
    • True gain comes through godliness with contentment
    • Contentment realizes that everything good we have is all because of the grace of God in Jesus
    • If we make money our great pursuit, then it will lead to our ruin
  • Learn to enjoy what you have while also being generous to others (6:17-19)
    • Wealth can be useful but is always temporary, so our hope must be in Someone more sure
    • God gives wealth for two purposes: to enjoy and to share, in proper balance
