Would you take your Bibles, and turn to: James 1 vs 25
And for just a minute, while you looking for that, I’ll be reading from the Living bible asI read my first scripture, then we’ll read the next scripture from the real bible. James1vs25 will be on the screen for those who are still looking in your Bible’s.
But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues “in it” and is not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work God will greatly bless him in everything that he does.
I want you to underline 2 thing’s that he say’s, ( now what did God say he would do), (1)he promise’s that a lot of good thing’s will happen, and one of them is that if we would obey his law when it comes to giving that he would open the window’s of heaven and pour out a blessing upon us, (2) he goes on to say that he will bless them in everything, everything in the (Greek) mean’s everything, Amen, it mean’s at work, play, or business; I believe he will bless you in your investment, he’ll give you wisdom and knowledge. For the Lord say’s he will not only remember it but he will do what it say’s, meaning the word of God, and he will bless him in everything that he does, one more scripture.
JOSHUA 1 vs 8, (See I’m trying to tell you why you ought to know the word, it ought to be in your heart) Joshua 1vs 8, this book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate (everybody say meditate) there in day and night and Thou shall observe to do according to all that is written, and then he shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success. God say’s if you meditate in the word of God, if you hide it in your hear, let it become a part of you, and your way is going to prosper and your going to have good success, how many believe God bless those who take care of Gods’ business, Gods’ obligated to us, and us to him, so take your offering envelope out, give the best offering you can, let’s give to God.
Many of you may want to give your Kingdom Builder’s, or building fund, by the way as a congregation don’t leave all the giving to the Kingdom Builder’s, this is everybody’s job say a good amen!, everyone in this building need’s to give an offering, as God bless you, as the window’s of heaven open, give unto the Lord.
(Pastor Prays for the offering).
