Biblical Economics

The hardest thing to talk about with many people is the area of personal finances. There seems to be reluctance because we all fail to be good stewards of what God has given to us. However, as with Job, hard times often come despite doing all things by the Book. Difficulty in personal finances is rooted in a failure to see all things as belonging to God. Yes, we affirm thi...

The Motivation for Giving

The motivation for giving comes through gratitude to God for what He has done for the sinner. If we were to number all the ways God has blessed us from our salvation to everyday provisions, we could never repay God for His kindness. This truth is outlined in many places in the Bible. The essence of giving is an act of worship founded upon God's benevolence to His people. I...

The Privilege to Give

The biblical principles of giving to God are some of the most misunderstood and misused topics within the church. To help us at Grace Bible Church to be informed about this biblical issue, so that we are giving from an informed mind and heart, I would like to hit several high points about giving. Obviously, we cannot discuss all the Bible teaches about giving in this forma...

What Are You For?

If I were to ask you, "What are you for?" I am sure that I would get a list of things that you support. Not only would you give me a list, but you would give me the the reasons why you support them. On the opposite side of the spectrum, we have those matters we are against. I can assume that list is a lot longer. It is a reflection of our depravity to always talk about tho...

A Faithful Philosophy

Every business or organization has a philosophy that supports their overall mission and purpose. The popular fast food chain Burger King lived by a popular philosophy, "Have it Your Way." This motto was their business philosophy that aimed at meeting the needs of the customer. This philosophy guided their burger business. Without this clear purpose, they would have flounde...

Unity and the Glory of God

The greatest way to demonstrate the glory of God is to maintain unity in the church. Jesus prayed in John 17:21, "that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in us," The prayer is that the church would be one as the Father and the Son are one. The desire of our church is to bring glory to God's name through a faithful commit...

Confession and the Glory of God

As we consider living for the glory of God, the act of confession of personal sin is a means to give glory to God. The acknowledgment of our sin is the only way to have a relationship with God. In Isaiah 59:2, the Prophet Isaiah states, "But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God," It is our sin that has breached our fellowship with God. Acknowledg...

Glorifying God with Our Words

In our current blog series, we are attempting to see how we can give glory to God in our lives. Basically, how can we give glory to God since God is all about His glory? I want to argue that one clear way we can bring glory to God in our everyday lives is by the words that we speak. The psalmist states it best, Psalm 19:14, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditations o...

Lessons on Forgiveness

In the church, there will always be the potential for us to sin against each other. The key to healthy relationships within the body of Christ is measured by our willingness to forgive each other. As believers, we are to forgive one another every time someone sins against us. Jesus teaches this clearly in Matthew 18:21-22, "Then Peter came and said to Him, 'Lord, how often...

Solidarity

In this new blog series, we are considering, "If God does everything for His sake, how can we be like God and do all things for His glory?" What captures our hearts and minds will usually be the things we will be committed to. As followers of Christ, we are called to love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind. In others words, God should capture our affections. If this...
