Financial Stewardship

The Bible addresses the topic of money, possessions, and associated attitudes more than any other subject in the Scripture. There are more than 2000 verses on this theme as it pertains to our financial and spiritual lives.

The use of money and possessions are a needful part of daily living and are important to fulfilling the commission of God’s Word to care for family, help the poor, and even to spread the gospel. Due to the integral role of financial matters in life, God in His infinite wisdom gave fixed doctrinal parameters for the Christian to follow in addition to giving sound financial principles upon which to operate. The state of one’s finances greatly affects the mind and emotions which in turn affect the spiritual; hence, it is imperative for Christians to have a biblical perspective of money to more effectively walk daily with God.Read more

The voices of the men and women conversing and discussing the things they had seen blended into a dull roar. A lame man, unable to keep up, shuffled along behind the crowd. A mother, holding a fevered child, came rushing down the road trying to reach the Master. Read more

(The following account is a narrative of the event recorded in Acts 19:10-20, KJV).

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, ministered in the city of Ephesus for two years. He shared the wonderful message of salvation, the Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom of God. The good news of the gospel spread throughout Asia Minor to all the people, both Jews and Greeks. Confirming the message with healings and deliverances, the power of God rested on Paul in an extraordinary way. Paul would anoint and pray over handkerchiefs which were then taken to the sick and devil possessed. The sick were healed of their diseases and those with evil spirits were set free.Read more

As a crowd of Jews stood watching, Jesus stepped into the Jordan River to be baptized. He had traveled from Galilee to where John the Baptist was preaching and baptizing.

As He waded out into the water, John began to protest: “I am not worthy to baptize you.” Yet, God had appointed John to introduce the Messiah to the world.Read more
