River Reach News 1/19

Last week a false nuclear attack alarm sent Hawaiians scrambling for their lives.  The power of a nuclear weapon is hard to fathom in it’s ability to wreak devastation and harm.  As Christians, we are continually exposed to a power that far exceeds the power of nuclear weapon.  This power works in the opposite direction taking broken and helpless souls and transforming them into something radically different and good.  It is the power of God!  Too often we look at ourselves, or the people around us and wonder if there is any hope that that devastation of sin can be repaired?  The answer is a resounding absolutely yes! (Romans 1:16)  The Gospel radically transformed forever the lives of the Thessalonian believers (1 Thessalonians 1:9).  From the moment of faith in Christ, God began a never ending process of restoring them into the perfection and beauty of the image of Jesus Christ.  This is wonderful news for us!  Nothing will hinder God from fully overcoming the grasp of sin on our lives (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24).

Money: Showing Off God’s Goodness through Stewardship

You thought about it today.  You used it.  You spent it.  You may have earned it.  Yes, I’m talking about that thing that is so critical in our lives that it touches almost every aspect of our lives: money.  Does God care about money?  Does He care what you and I do with our wealth?  Though God did not create the dollar, He understands that how we handle money directly reveals His greatest interest, our hearts.  Money reveals what we treasure.  What we treasure reveals the priorities of our hearts (Matthew 6:19-21).  This Sunday I will begin a 6-8 week series on the stewardship of money in our morning service.  Brian and Josh will continue that series the following weeks in our adult Sunday Class.  God’s Word has a lot to say about wealth and how we out to handle it.  I hope you will join us for this new series and learn how to honor the Lord from the heart!
