The Treasure Hunt
A Generosity Series
Raising the Standard
November 24, 2019 • Pastor Jeff Beckett
We have come to the end of our fourweek journey called the Treasure Hunt. We have tried to identify true treasure, and focus on how to lay up such treasure in heaven, rather than earth. It has been an eye-opening journey. Last week we discussed learning to live for the line and not the dot. This week we conclude the journey by considering God’s expectations of us as believers, and as stewards of His stuff.
Defeating the More Monster
November 17, 2019 • Pastor Jeff Beckett
The More Monster is a tough taskmaster. It consumes our resources, spare time, focus, energies and passions. It promises us happiness if we play the game, then gives us only coal in our stockings. The result is we live a half-life… a temporary shadow of a life. That is a life we were not meant for, since God chose to create us as spiritual beings. Today we will try to take the More Monster down!
Eyes on Eternity
November 10, 2019 • Pastor Jeff Beckett
Last week in our “treasure hunt” we discovered that treasure is a perfectly worthwhile pursuit on earth, but most people have a faulty value system, making their treasure hunt a giant waste of time. Today, we will explore how eternal rewards are a very real thing, and how our hearts always follow our treasures. Come along as we search deeper on our eternally focused hunt for treasure!
Discovering the Basic Truth About Stuff
November 3, 2019 • Pastor Jeff Beckett
Today we begin a four-week look at some of the important and fundamental principles of life on planet earth. We will look at what we treasure, how we feel about things, and what role God plays in our feelings about stuff. Using Randy Alcorn’s book, The Treasure Principle as a guide in the BFG’s we will examine several key Biblical passages that speak to stewardship, generosity, and eternity
