The Attitude of Ownership

Join us today as Pastor CJ shares with us a message entitled The Attitude of Ownership.

Key Scripture: 1 Chronicles 29:13-16

1 Chronicles 29:13-16 English Standard Version (ESV)
13 And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.
14 “But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able thus to offer willingly? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you.15 For we are strangers before you and sojourners, as all our fathers were. Our days on the earth are like a shadow, and there is no abiding.[a] 16 O Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a house for your holy name comes from your hand and is all your own.

The reasons we MUST believe that what we own actually belongs to God is because of…..

  1. The “Golden Rule” –
    He who owns the gold makes the rules
  2. The “Praise Factor” –
    He who owns the gold gets the praise

You can’t do ANYTHING without using something God has created.

This idea that God owns all our possessions is a critical measure of our spiritual maturity.
