Fully Devoted: Give & Serve

Matthew 19:16-30 by Art Stansberry
Series:Fully Devoted

This Sunday we will continue tracking what it means to be fully devoted followers of Christ and His Church. We will talk about the importance of giving and serving the Lord. In Matthew 19 Jesus encounters a young man who inquires about eternal life and how to get it. Jesus, knowing this man's life, says in verse 21, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." We are called to buy stock in the Kingdom of God, not the kingdom of this world that we tend to establish. This week we will discover that when we lay down our kingdoms, give to the Lord, and serve Him, that we are laying up treasures in heaven that can never be taken away.
