Dear Mosaic Family,
We're continuing our series called "This Changes Everything," in which we're showing how the Awesome News of Jesus Christ (The Gospel), changes absolutely every single major area of our lives. Tomorrow, we'll be talking about how the Gospel changes the way we view, earn, spend, give, and invest money. Yes, we'll be talking about money at church ( ::gasp:: !!). Yes, it sounds like a major faux pas! Don't ever talk about money at church (right?). Especially at a church plant!
Why are we talking about money tomorrow? Because Jesus talked about money.... a lot!! Jesus talked more about money, than he did about faith, prayer, heaven, and hell... combined! Over 25% of the recorded words of Jesus in the Gospels are devoted to money (28 passages). The Bible has over 800 verses discussing money.
Jesus taught that we either worship our wealth, or we worship with our wealth. In Matthew 6:24 he said, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Be sure to join us tomorrow for this incredibly relevant teaching!
Praying for you,
