Money tells us that cash is king. If we have cash, we have the power that will gives us the freedom we all want. But Jesus tells us, while money is a form of power, it’s not the kind of power we need to seek.
The Talk Mammon Hates to Hear
In this series we are learning that money actually talks, and has a message which is animated by one of two spirits: the spirit of Mammon or the Spirit of God. Either one of these voices will powerfully influence us depending on which we are drawn to. Mammon’s message? You will only be happy and at peace when you have enough money. God’s message? You can experience contentment no matter how much or little money you have - through Jesus!
Becoming God's People of Formation and Fire
In this season of revival in our world, shouldn’t we just stop everything and have constant worship services? God has called us to a "both and” of Formation (truth expressed in practices) and Fire (welcoming God’s “thin space” presence). In this last week of Money Talks, we are going to watch a debate between Tithing and Mammon as they argue for your allegiance. And then, provide an opportunity to choose the winner in your life.
