THE LOVE OF MONEY

 

1Timothy 6:6-16

 

June 3rd 2018

 

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

 

 

Intro – This text is many times misquoted. It is not money that is evil but the love of money. God blesses many believers with money because He knows they will pass it along to His kingdom’s work here on earth. Believers who struggle financially are usually those who do not tithe and do not give to the Lord’s work. God’s promise in Malachi 3:10 is still valid today, give to the Lord and He will bless you.

 

 

 

I. Love of money shows a lack of commitment. (6-8) Matt.6:24

 

A. If you are not content you dishonor God.

 

1. Grumbling and complaining dishonor God. 1Cor.10:10

 

2. Selfishness is a cause of trouble. Phil.2:3-4, James 3:16

 

3. Greed dishonors God. Luke 12:15, Ecc. 5:10     

 

B. Contentment comes from having a right attitude. (7) Job 1:21

 

 

 

II. Love of money leads to ruin. (9-10)

 

A. Financial ruin. Gambling and cheating. Prov.15:27, Prov.28:20 

 

B. Spiritual ruin.  2Tim.4:10

 

1. Idols are when other things become more important than your walk with the Lord. Col.3:5

 

2. Love of money causes you to sin. Jn.12:6, Mt.26:14-15

 

 

 

III. Love of money distracts from your living for Jesus. (11-16)

 

A. Flee the desire to be rich.

 

B. Instead desire a closer walk with Jesus. 2Tim.4:7, Phil. 3:8

 

C. Be faithful until He returns. (14) 

 

 

Con. What drives you, desire for more of what the world offers or a desire for more of what Jesus offers?

Intro – Our text is known as the great commission. Where Jesus tells us that we are to go and make disciples.  This is most likely the meeting Paul refers to in 1Cor.15:6 where Jesus appears to more than 500 people. In our Lord’s command to “go” He uses the word “all” three times

B. Also here at home. John 1:41, Is.44:8-9

 

C. Your neighbors and fellow workers can see you. Acts 4:13, John 15:27

C. Your life is a testimony of God’s saving grace. 1Peter 3:14-15

 

 

 

Con – Go with a purpose. Our goal is to change the way people think so they will come into agreement with God and His word. And come to know Jesus Christ as their only hope of salvation.
