Kingdom Culture- "With Everything"- Part 2

This past weekend we had an amazing encounter with God as a church. It was one of those, "you had to be there" experiences! I spoke briefly from the story found in Luke 18:18-29 (click here to read) It talks about a rich man that really didn't want to give everything to God. He wanted to do just enough to get by. I see myself in that story more than I would like to admit. We often do everything that we can to keep from giving everything to God. God commands us to put Him first in our time, talent & treasure. Scripture is littered with stories of people that did not give everything to God & it cost them everything. Here are a few...

GENESIS 4-- CAIN- Didn't give God His Best.
JOSHUA 7- ACHAN- Didn't put God First.
ACTS 5- ANANIAS & SAPHIRA- Didn't give God Everything.


Do you have a passion & fire for the things of God? Do you enthusiastically love others & have a desperation to reach others with the good news of Jesus Christ? If you don't it's because you are holding something back from God. God wants to fill you with His power, passion & His Holy Spirit! If you are going to receive everything from God, you need to give everything to Him. Give God your heart (time, talent & treasure) & you will experience the joy of walking with Him. When you give everything to God, God will give you everything that you need!  Here are some final scriptures that I want to challenge you with so that you will reflect a kingdom culture with your life!

LUKE 14:25-33, "...any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple."

Matthew 13:44-46, "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. 45"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it."

Romans 12:10-12, "never be lacking in zeal & passion when serving the Lord."

Decade Of Destiny- Year 3, GREATER 2014

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
