Gospel-ish

Nov 03, 2019 | Eric Nelson

Impover:ished | Gospelish Part 5 | South Jordan

The Poverty Gospel uses the POOR to shame the RICH.


1 Timothy 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.


The Gospel uses WEALTH to serve the poor and the rich.


The Poverty Gospel taxes our JOY.


1 John 2:15-17 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh,the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.


The Poverty Gospel doesn’t delight in God but in the AMOUNT that we give up for God.


Luke 16:9-11 I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. 10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?


God is not asking us to trade places with the poor, He’s asking us to be trustworthy with our WEALTH.


Luke 11:42 “Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone.”


1 Corinthians 9:13-14 Don't you know that those who work in the temple get their food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar? 14 In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.


QUESTION: How do you know when you have too much?


1 Timothy 6:17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God,


ANSWER: It’s not about too much, it’s about too ATTACHED.


Growing Gospel FLUENT:


1. Practical Teaching.


2. Personal Ministry.


3. Purposeful Relationship


4. Private Devotion

 


Small Group Questions:


1. Have you ever felt guilty about not being generous enough? Why did guilt set in?


2. Have you ever felt spiritual pride after being very generous? Why did pride set in?


3. Read 1 Timothy 6:17-19. How does this verse combat pride and guilt? Which do you feel more often, pride or guilt? Explain why.


4. Read Luke 16:9-11. What do you think Jesus meant by about being trusted with wealth?


5. Reread all the fill-ins from this message. How is the Gospel’s approach to wealth better than the Poverty Gospels’ approach to wealth?


6. What will be your next step towards becoming Gospel Fluent?


7. What will be your takeaway from this series: GOSPELISH?
