Sunday August 4th 2013 "Too much Stuff"

It was really good to be back in church last week, I had really missed it.  I love it when God speaks to me and he always speaks to me when I am in church.  Priss’s lesson spoke to me about not giving up on God.  So many times we just throw our hands up in the air and just give up. Sometimes that can be a good thing if we realize we can’t do it on our own and turn it over to God, the problem is many times when we give up on ourselves we give up on God as well.  Never forget that God is so much bigger then we are and he will not give up on us even if we give up on him.  If you remember that God’s Grace is enough for whatever trial you are going through, you can get through it and receive a blessing along the way.  God is sooooo good.

This week I want to talk about the stuff we have in our lives. It is amazing as I drive around town on Saturday and Sundays how many garage sells I see.  It looks like a department store threw up on to our front yard.  I know one house that is located near me; they have a garage sale EVERY weekend during the summer.  How did we accumulate all this stuff?  The truth is the more stuff we have the happier we think we will be.  That brings me to the text for this week.  It is a story Jesus told as a heckler was calling out to him as he was teaching. The man said: Tell my brother to split his inheritance with me.  It is then Jesus tells the story of the rich fool.  The scripture is found in Luke the 12Th chapter vs 13-21.  This is a man who all he cares about is himself and his money.  How many people are like this today?  We need to listen as Jesus deals with this problem in the most harsh way.  What was it that this man did wrong? And what is God showing us today as we live our lives full of stuff?  I hope you will be in church on Sunday to go over this because it is something we all need to understand.

I hope you are praying for this ministry and where we are headed.  God has a plan to use you to do something wonderful in his service and I hope you are available to be used by him.  Keep praying for those that have been out over the last few weeks and make a point to pray with someone every day.  God hears the cry’s of his people and he will always answer our prayers, just not always as we expect him to.  Expect the unexpected and Trust God, you will not be disappointed. We love you and can’t wait to see you on Sunday!

We Love you, but God loves you more
Pastor David and Pris
