Stewardship Moment from Pastor William
Stewardship in the Gospel
Jesus teaches that inheritance is kingdom of God related. Well, actually, it is about what we think we are owed as an inheritance. You see, inheritance is about what the owner of something wants someone else to receive. God wants us to receive what God has; life!
Stewardship in our community
We tend to focus on what belongs to us and to whom we want to give it. We make rules for what people can do with what we leave them in our wills. We want to control our stuff even after we are gone. Don’t think so? How much of what you have left when you die are you leaving to God’s work being done by your church? Yeah, I thought so.
Stewardship in practice
Our life in Jesus is an inheritance we receive while we are alive. Our relationship as a Child of God is meant to change our life here and now. Does your changed life affect others in a positive way? Start living your life in a way that others are benefited. Then move to how your financial resources benefit others. The ultimate display of your changed life is in how your death will benefit those who do not know the love of Christ. You see, eternal life is not something you get when you die; it is something you give to others when you die.
