From studying God's Word, we understand the big picture. We see the signs of the times and we fully trust in God's plan. Now it is time for biblical Christians to live each day with prophetic urgency. As it says in Romans 12:11-12, "Keep serving the Lord, rejoicing in hope, enduring in distress, persisting in prayer..."
When it comes to studying end-times prophecy, there are books, blogs, and Bible studies beyond number. This is our attempt to take a step back, look at the big picture, and share some signposts that can help us identify where we are on the biblical, prophetic roadmap.
Do you believe what the Bible says about your identity? We won't find true self-worth in the things of this world. Only in Christ Jesus can we discover our true identity. And, once we discover our identity in Christ, we can go on to fulfill the God-given calling that He has designed for our lives.
Over the past two decades we've studied the topic of biblical stewardship, as well as taught it and put into practice. In our latest podcast series, we take a look at the key elements for a biblical understanding of personal finances. We hope you'll join us and embrace what we call the ultimate paradigm shift in your financial life!
In the final episode of our podcast series on managing money and possessions as wise stewards, we take a look at what it means to find true financial freedom. We talk about our goals as we aim for financial freedom, and the character traits required to get there. We also share our take on Dave Ramsey's "baby steps", as a guide for transforming your finances.
When it comes to personal finance, one of the best lessons to learn is avoiding the use of debt. Debt has become widely accepted in our culture, to the point where some would argue that they cannot survive without it. We are here to tell you there is a better way. When you invite God into your finances, you can live a debt-free lifestyle.
In this podcast episode, we ask ourselves, “Do we have enough?” and “How can Christians find true and lasting happiness?” The answers can be found in cultivating contentment in our lives. We believe that contentment is not about a number, or achieving a certain amount of wealth to be satisfied. It's about the attitude of the heart, being content with whatever God blesses you with to manage for His glory.
Balance gets complicated when you consider the outside forces acting on your life. The needs of your family, the demands of your job, and the rug-pulling effect of unexpected crises are all obvious factors that affect your balance. Which priorities are you not fulfilling with excellence?
We define biblical stewardship as Christians managing God's resources in accordance with biblical priorities. This requires the conversion of our hearts, minds, calendars, and pocketbooks. It means that decisions on how to invest our resources are really spiritual decisions that require faithfulness and wisdom.
