“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #88: To God Be The Glory



“You may say to yourself, ‘My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.’ 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 forefathers, as it is today.” (Deut 8:17-18, NIV).

I have two kinds of Christians on my mind.

The first kind is comprised of those who pray to God for a financial breakthrough. When they get the breakthrough, these people forsake God and immediately run into the wild, like warthogs, as if their breakthrough came from Satan.

The second kind is comprised of Christians who, after receiving the breakthrough, go on to take the glory…like, “I am bad! I am bad! You know it!” disregarding the fact that they asked and were given.

“What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?” (1 Cor 4:7, NIV).

“Be very careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” (Eph 5:15-16, NIV).
