"Forged in the Spirit" Part 4: Jesus & Your Stuff | Pastor Devon Martinsen


Luke 12:13 -

  • Divide inheritance
  • Build bigger storehouses
  • Dont store things for yourselves
  • Don't worry about what you have, what you will wear etc... God will take care of all of that... He knows what you need!
  • Seek His Kingdom!
  • "For where your treasure is, there you heart will be also"

1.  It's All God's

  • You don't own anything!
  • We are just stewarding what has been entrusted into our care...what we have is on loan.
  • Use what God has given you to glorify Him!

He reveals Himself to us through scripture.

Luke 12:48 -

  • "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."

2- We can only work with the Grace God has given us...

Give what and how you can and how God leads you...

3- Be a Risk Taker-

  • Step out in Faith!
  • There's no guarantee that whatever you give witll be given back.  
  • Be willing to give and invest in faith knowing that God will use it where it is most needed!
  • Remember, there's more where that came from:  God who richly supplied you has more blessing in endless supply of it...don't be afraid to share and give it away!
"The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller. The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;  those who help others are helped." - Proverbs 11:24-25 MSG
When it comes to our "Stuff", it's always God's first.  Used for HIS Glory - Trust Him with what He's given you and entrusted you with in life.
*When we focus on Jesus we have an answer to all that (anxieties, issues and problems etc...) and it's not "more money"'s More Jesus!
"God, I can trust my life to you and I don't have to worry about tomorrow because I know you've god that!"
"God, use me to build your kingdom and to invest in the people around me"
