The Gospel & Money

June 8, 2014 • Jan Vezikov

Tomorrow, we'll be talking about how the Gospel changes the way we view, earn, spend, give, and invest money. Yes, we'll be talking about money at church ( ::gasp:: !!). Yes, it sounds like a major faux pas! Don't ever talk about money at church (right?). Especially at a church plant! Why are we talking about money tomorrow? Because Jesus talked about money.... a lot!! Jesus talked more about money, than he did about faith, prayer, heaven, and hell... combined! Over 25% of the recorded words of Jesus in the Gospels are devoted to money (28 passages). The Bible has over 800 verses discussing money. Jesus taught that we either worship our wealth, or we worship with our wealth. In Matthew 6:24 he said, “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”

The Gospel and Sex

June 15, 2014 • Jan Vezikov

We're continuing our series called "This Changes Everything," in which we're showing how the Awesome News of Jesus Christ (The Gospel), changes absolutely every single major area of our lives. Perhaps, I should have entitled this series: "Stuff you're not supposed to talk about at church." Last week we talked about money, tomorrow we're talking about God & Sex. How does the Gospel inform and redeem sex? Join us as we look to Scripture for answers.

The Gospel & Relationships

We're continuing our series called "This Changes Everything," in which we're showing how the Awesome News of Jesus Christ (The Gospel), changes absolutely every single major area of our lives. There aren't many areas of life more all encompassing than the way we relate to the people around us. In a place like Boston, where we're packed in like sardines, we really need to learn how to live with one another and not just to survive, but to thrive. Thanks be to Jesus, who's given us a really powerful Gospel, which really does provide the resources to love our neighbors as ourselves.
