The Bible tells us we are made in God’s image. Generosity is at the heart of who God is. God cares of much for us that He gave His only Son so that we might experience forgiveness.
Many of say we want to follow and obey Jesus with our whole heart. Good! Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” But there is a lot of competition for our hearts. Most of us have a major spiritual battle of every day–the eternal feud between God and money:
- No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24
- For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21
“Freed Up” can help you “wake up” to whom you serve and where your heart is. How would you describe your relationship to your money and stuff? Your understanding of what the Bible says about money and stuff has powerful implications for your daily life.
God longs for us to be free to follow him, free from worry, and free from the pull of the culture. Experiencing this freedom requires intentionality in the way we handle the resources God has provided for us – intentionality in our earning, giving, saving, spending, and debt retirement. The culture pulls us toward enslavement, but God beckons us to freedom. May it be true of us that “if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).
