Yesterday at C3 we continued our Five Star series from James. Matt preached a powerful, convicting word on “The Life that God Blesses”.
Also, this Wednesday night is our Summer Kick Off at 7:00pm in the Worship Center with Keith and Mary Hudson, parents of singer/songwriter Katy Perry. The event is free, but you must have a ticket to enter. Click here for tickets.
BEING OBSESSED WITH THE ACQUISITION OF WEALTH WILL LEAD TO TROUBLES
James 5:1, “Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you.
THE WEALTH OF THIS WORLD IS TEMPORARY
James 5:1-2, “Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you. Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags.”
THE WEALTH OF THIS WORLD WILL NOT SATISFY
James 5:3, “Your gold and silver have become worthless. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This treasure you have accumulated will stand as evidence against you on the day of judgment.
PREOCCUPATION WITH WEALTH WILL ERODE YOUR CHARACTER
James 5:4-6, “For listen! Hear the cries of the field workers whom you have cheated of their pay. The wages you held back cry out against you. The cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every whim. Now your hearts are nice and fat, ready for slaughter. You have condemned and killed good people who had no power to defend themselves against you.” (NLT)
PUT YOUR HOPE IN GOD!
Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
Psalm 43:5, “Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!”
