Earthen Glory #14

Earthen Glory #14

Passage: Ephesians 4:28

Speaker: Pastor Jon Venema

Series: Earthen Glory

Keywords: generosity, good, grace, have, steal, work

Jesus alters our purpose for living and for working.

Our life in Christ is a work of grace. Work not to get but to give.

I You can steal to get (illegal)

II You can work in order to have (legal)

III You can work in order to give

IV Put off your old self (selfishness)

V Be renewed in the spirit of your mind

VI Put on your new self through the power of the Holy Spirit

The thief is to become a philanthropist (helper, do gooder)

  1. Do not steal, live by faith.
  2. Labor, working good with your hands.
  3. Work to get in order to give to those in need.
