We're Moving - Part 5: "Financial Freedom"

Series: We're Moving

When it comes to money, we think that more money will lead to financial freedom. The reality is, the way to financial freedom doesn’t come from getting more money. The way to freedom is to have a purpose for your money, a plan for your money, and persistence with your money.  The purpose is to point back to God. The plan is to invest in God first, your future second, and your present third. Just imagine what kind of impact Hope Church might have if the hundreds of people who consider us their church decided to have a purpose, a plan, and persistence with money.

Part 5 - “Financial Freedom”

June 6, 2021

 

2 Corinthians 9:6-7

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

 

 

2 Corinthians 9:8-9

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written: “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever.”

 

 

2 Corinthians 9:10-11

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

 

 

2 Corinthians 9:12-13

This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves…

 

 

2 Corinthians 9:13-15

…others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!

 

 

1 Corinthians 16:2

On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.
