Is He the Lord of your money too

We always declare that Jesus is Lord but many times forget what it means to make Him Lord over our lives. We make Him Master of our families, careers, and health but when it comes to other things such as our money and wealth, we call the shots and we take control. The Lordship of Christ is an all or nothing deal. We either make Him Lord of all or not at all. Are we making Him Lord of our…

The Downside of Affluence

  We can see many Christian individuals who are wealthy and grounded on the Rock, on their faith in God. However, there are some who seems to have forgotten their humble beginnings, much worse, they have forgotten the Giver of their wealth. In Deuteronomy 8:18 the NIV says: “But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is…

Investment Success

In this day and age, with all the spending options available to us, it’s hard to save. The savings rate in most wealthy countries indicate that this is an understatement! In fact, in my country of birth (Australia) the national savings rate from 2000 to 2010 was 3%. That is called living beyond your means! Your ability to save will have a profound impact on your long-term financial situation. I’d like to demonstrate the potential power of saving to you: HOW…

Control cash

Good financial management necessitates that you get control over your spending. There is no lack of things to distract us and to spend our money on! I recommend that you become a “master” of your spending rather than its servant, in order to: get your finances in good shape; and use your resources to advance God’s Kingdom. The achievement of the majority of your financial goals will depend on your ability to save, and therefore, your ability to control your…

Intimacy with God

I’m often asked about what makes some people good with money while others struggle. I could answer that in several ways, but let me do so by dividing the issue into two camps: the practical camp and the spiritual camp. Some people in the practical camp manage money well because they live beneath their means, save, invest and live generously. Then there are those who are in the spiritual camp, who know God intimately, and know his word and are…

In today’s society, many of us feel a burden to either be rich, or at least look rich. If you feel pressured to buy a house you can’t really afford, or buy that car that makes you look successful, Jesus offers a great and tough advice. “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed, life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” – Luke 12:15 (NIV) Many of us has fallen into the lie that possession are what…

Many Christians are often surprised to find out that there are more than 2,300 Bible passages that relate to money, wealth, and possession. With the sheer amount of scripture relating to money, it would seem to be stating the obvious, that money matters to God. The reality is that money has enormous influence over our lives, and is probably the single most important thing that could distract you from your relationship and loyalty to God. Is it any wonder that the…

When we think about idolatry we tend to think of the Israelites bowing down and worshiping a golden calf. In our western society, idolatry is something that usually is a good thing that’s taken too far. Working hard is a good thing, owning a home is a good thing, having a nice holiday (from time to time) to relax and rejuvenate is a good thing. The problem is when we take it too far. The danger is when these things control…
