His

Real reach 4This weekend I began a new series at Eastbrook Church entitled “Real Rich” with a message entitled “His.” The sermon was an exploration of the simple yet far-reaching theme:

God owns everything and all that we have is His.

The outline for the message is below. You can listen to the message online here or download it via the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also visit Eastbrook Church on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The Bible on God Owning Everything

  • Psalm 24:1-2
  • Haggai 2:8
  • Deuteronomy 8:18

Two Pictures of God Owning Everything

  • The Promised Land (Exodus 3:7-9; Joshua 1:11)
  • The Magi visiting Jesus (Matthew 2:1-12)

Two Tendencies to Avoid

  • Manichaeism – undervaluing the physical
  • Materialism – overvaluing the physical

What does it mean that God owns everything? (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

  • From ownership to stewardship
  • From idolizing to valuing
  • From hoarding to generosity
