1) What to do with our Treasures In OT times was “tithing”, mandatory. NT times “giving”, less regulated, but...(1) Giving should be Regular; (2) All are to participate; (3) Store Up as we prosper; (4) Giving should never be manipulated. Are you using your treasures for the furtherance of the Word? 2) What to do with our Time. Paul spent a small amount of time in Corinth, but spent 3 years in Ephesus growing 12 believers into many more. He sent Timothy, but Apollos put off going. Are you putting off giving your time to the Lord? 3) What to do with our Talents. Just as Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus came to share their talents, you should be also. Or be like Aquila and Priscilla who held church meetings in their home! Whatever you do, share the talents you were given, no matter how small they may seem.

Are you living for Jesus? We are all hopeful for eternal life. But is it real? Can we really live forever? Death is 100%, but we all will die a second time. Revelation tells us what John was told about it. Listen as Jim brings these passages together for some of the answers.
