The 3 Levels of Tithing: Level 2

Many people outside the Church practice tithing (continued from yesterday). People of other religions do it. I’ve seen modern financial books that I would consider “new age” that promote tithing in some form. They all receive a blessing for doing this. And yet too many of us in the Church look suspiciously at a pastor…

Are you allowing God’s miracles in your life? (Mt 9–Part 1)

Matthew 9 Two main themes strike me as I read this chapter and after I wrote them out decided to break this into two separate posts. The first is the importance of Faith in God’s ability and willingness to transform our circumstances in order for Him to do that work in our lives. Since we…

The 3 Levels of Tithing: Level 1

Everyone who is in Christ has been bought by the blood of Christ. You are His. Everything you own has become His. You are only a steward over your money and possessions. Without this, eternity is a curse, and with it, a blessing. He grants you ever increasing love, joy, peace & blessing (this does…

Is faith enough? (Mt 8)

Matthew 8 We finished the Sermon on the Mount yesterday here. My original thinking to do a bible study with a focus on Stewardship and Calling was not to go into minute detail, but instead to read a chapter a day and share my reflections on that chapter as it related to Stewardship and Calling….

In Genesis, God gave us a picture of what was to come. He promised Abraham that even though he was extremely old he would have children and build a nation of people from him and eventually bless the world through him. Abraham waited and got even older. He eventually did have Isaac. God then told…

“I Will Get You Here”

God really showed me something new last Saturday night and I wanted to carve out this moment to tell you about it. I heard a song that really touched me and gave me some insight into the heart of God. I attended an amazing party that was raising money for Devin & Cathy Garza’s family…

“I Don’t Tithe Because…”

Our temptation is to look at our own circumstances and decide that they are too difficult and to say that God understands your reasons for not tithing. Please understand that Satan tells everyone this when they’re not in the habit of tithing. By following the wrong master you’re are not allowing God to bless you…

What it Means to Tithe
