Reading taken from Matthew 6:19-34 (Have it read to you)
If you want to jump straight into the message without a recap of the last few weeks, jump to 7:00 minutes.
Our current series is called REPURPOSE – the idea came from a word taken from our previous #GO! series (listen here) and that week was also entitled #GO!: REPURPOSE
The message had such a powerful impact that it really demanded more than one week – This week our Pastor Darren Bovis-Coulter picks up the sub-topic again called ‘Guardrails’ that was introduced 2 weeks ago. The guardrails messages over these few weeks are inspired by Andy Stanley, a preacher from North Point church in America and series they have delivered a few times called guardrails. Their messages are available on youtube, and Darren introduces a number of their examples in our series.
This week we are looking at the guardrails needed with our finances – by way of an intro there were 3 questions asked:
- Have you ever thought what you might own or have, if you had not seen what everyone else owns or has?
- Q. I wonder what else we would want, if we did know what everyone else had?
- Q. I wonder how much money we might have saved if we didn’t know what everyone else spent their money on?
This message challenges us as to who owns us, God or money – if we are not living God’s way then we are living as if there is no God, therefore we need some financial guardrails too.
If you have any questions from the message today, or would like prayer as a result of things you hear, please contact us, we would love to pray for you.
