Be Totally Committed

‘I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.’ Philippians 3:8 NKJV Ever hear of ‘one-way missionaries’? They purchased a one-way ticket to the mission field, and instead of packing a suitcase they packed their belongings into a coffin, knowing they would never return home. A.W. Milne was one of them. He went to the New Hebrides in the South Pacific, knowing that head-hunters had martyred every missionary before him. But he didn’t fear for his life because he had already died to himself. For thirty-five years he lived among them […]

Faith For The Attacks

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”Romans 10:17 Now that we have made our commitments to the Lord, the enemy will do all he can to attack and discourage us. We must stand strong in the faith that comes by hearing God’s Word. I want to encourage you to put these five scriptures to memory, so you can speak them and keep your faith strong. Philippians 4:19 NIV: “And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Matthew 6:33 NIV: “But seek first His kingdom and His […]

Tithe Test – DAY OF FASTING

“Bring the whole the into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” Mal 3:10 Today, we have brought our offering commitments to the Lord and it is important that we continue to honor God with our regular thing in order to sustain the mission of the church. There are really more than three reasons you should the. 1. God says if we […]

Seven Rewards of the Giver

“… for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 If someone ever tells you that you get the short end of the deal by being a giver, tell them to think again. Take a look at these rewards scripture promises to the giver. 1. You will prosper. (Prov. 1:25.) That’s much beer than the alternative. 2. You will be refreshed and encouraged by other people. (Prov. 11:25.) We all need this at different points in our lives. 3. You will get back whatever […]

Willing Hearts

“Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” 1 Timothy 6:18 Whether we know it or not, by the standards of today’s world, each one of us is rich. Most of us who have jobs make more money in one month than most people in 3rd world nations can make in one entire year. God has given us responsibility with the accumulation of our wealth. He has asked us to have willing hearts to share. As we approach, “Commitment Sunday” where we bring our pledges and first-fruits offerings to […]

Power Seed

“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant.” Deuteronomy 8:18 Here and in eternity, God’s nature is to reward. He supplies our needs in this life, He blesses the generous giver, and He promises eternal rewards. Jesus famously declared, “If you give, you will receive. Your gifts will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together, to make room for more, and running over.” Scripture is clear that giving is a part of a whole-life transformation that is reflected in our […]

History or Destiny?

“There is one who scatters, yet increases more; And there is one who withholds more than is right, but it leads to poverty. The generous soul will be made rich.” Proverbs 11:24-25 Displaying a life of generosity is the single greatest act of faith that declares, “My future is brighter than my today!” When we are generous in our giving, we are giving according to our destiny, not according to our history. If we give based on where we have been, we may never get to where we are supposed to be going. Does the giving of your me, talent, […]

God Is Up To Something

“For I am about to do a brand new thing. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?” Isaiah 43:19 The question before the members of Life Fellowship Church is not, “Is God doing a new thing?” The question is, “Do you see the new thing God is doing?” We must recognize, understand, and be open to what the Holy Spirit is doing in our midst. We are being called to go from one level of faith to the next. Let us see, embrace, and appreciate this process. Every one of us started out this spiritual journey as […]
