Breaking the Spirit of Mammon. M A M M O N. It’s a word that’s in the bible only four times. Jesus, as far as I know, only used it three times. And one of the times it’s a repeat, it’s in Matthew and Luke, but it’s the same sermon recorded by two different
authors, but we’re going to look at it in Luke…So here’s the big line! You cannot serve both God and Mammon. This is the only
phrase like this in the bible. Where Jesus contrasts serving God, with serving something else, you cannot serve, both God and Mammon. Just cant!

The Principle of First

The reality is that in South Africa, it’s scary out there and I want to be very sensitive to the fears you face. If there is one thing that causes fear it is money – or lack of money. The purpose of this series of sermons is to take you from fear to generous confidence.
Jesus was very critical of the religious leaders of that time and accused them of placing burdens upon people they were unable to bear. And so as we preach through these series of sermons we do not want to place a burden upon you that you cannot bear. On the contrary, we want to lead you into a set of principles to liberate to a position of blessing. The principles laid out are Biblical.

What Test?

“What test?” Can any of you relate to that? Who can remember having that awful experience?! When you walked into the classroom, and everyone had their books out, and they are busy studying, and you walk in, and they say, “Are you ready for the test?” And a chill runs down your spine, and you say? … (What test!!) Yeah…Well, some of us did not do so well in those kind of situations! But the reason today’s message is called “What test?” is because many believers don’t know that there is a test in the bible, and that you actually take this test, every single time you get paid

The Blessed Life

Now a teaching series that we have found very helpful is called the Blessed life. It is by a Pastor by the name of Robert Morris, from Gateway church, and we are going to be working through this practical and transformational series over the next five weeks. The way we are going to do it is we are going to play some clips by Pastor Robert Morris, and we are going to be doing some tag preaching with him by one of our pastors as well. What I really like about this series, is that it is not give-to-get, but it’s give-to-give! It’s not prosperity stuff, that says; “If you give to God, you’re guaranteed to be healthy and wealthy!” It’s balanced, it’s biblical, and it’s going to really help us as a church, because there’s truth in this series – truth that I really believe can change our lives, it can change our relationships, it can change our marriages, it can change our jobs… it can change your life… It’s a blessed life, not a blessed bank account or a blessed wallet. It’s a blessed life.
