  • Satisfried Series

    Contributed by Rick Stacy on Dec 3, 2014
     | 1,821 views

    At the end of the day we want to be satisfied and most of have been convinced that somehow money is the answer. Today I will expose three lies that sound true and three truths that sound false.

    Satisfried. Hi, My name is Rick and I’m addicted to money. [This is where you say, “Hi Rick” thus acknowledging that you are part of the same American consumer culture that I am.] We live in a world that is designed by people who want you and me to spend money in the vain ...read more

    Most people will agree in principle that the one who gives is more blessed than the one who receives. But they still struggle with giving – often because they can’t give. They have too many bills and are struggling to get by.

    Satisfied. Last Sunday I began a series of messages called “Satisfied.” that is about money – except it’s not really about money. It’s about life. In that message I pointed out three lies that sounded like truths and three truths that sounded like lies. Three ...read more

    Two weeks ago I taught that the core principle of satisfaction was rooted in giving. Not spending, not getting, not working, not saving, not investing, not begging, and not gambling. The only way to achieve a satisfied life is by giving.

    Why? There are a lot of things in the world that just don’t make sense. They are mysteries to me. Here are a few of the things I wonder about: As we get older in school why do the desks get smaller? This is the desk I had in elementary school. Here is the desk I had in Junior HI. Here ...read more

    Obedience is like being pregnant. In the same way that it is impossible to be kind of pregnant, it is impossible to be kind of obedient.

    Fan… or Follower? A fan likes God when life is good. A follower obeys God when life is hard. We’ve been talking about what it takes to have a satisfied life. In week one I talked about how important it was to be a giver if you want to experience a satisfied life. Spending, ...read more

  • Prosperous Series

     | 2,153 views

    That’s the world view of the good life… but it is as empty and unsatisfying as that huge chocolate bunny you get your kids at Easter. I mean it looks fabulous… but it’s hollow and it tastes like flavored wax.

    The Unsatisfying Easter Bunny For most of people the word “prosperity” connects with the idea of being successful financially and living the “good” life. But in God’s economy prosperity is so much more than a thick roll of money in your pocket, two SUV’s in the ...read more

    Mythbusters is one of those TV shows I enjoy watching. So let’s bust a myth today about money and families.

    Myth Busters 13 Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?” 15 And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all ...read more

    Sowing and Reaping is permanently and proportionately connected.

    Are You Ready for Some Fun in the Son! 1 Now it is superfluous for me to write to you about the ministry for the saints, 2 for I know your readiness, of which I boast about you to the people of Macedonia, saying that Achaia has been ready since last year. 2 Corinthians 9:1-2 This is the ...read more

     | 2,399 views

    Malachi’s record of God’s oracles was from the heart of God, brutally honest, and full of hope.

    The Oracle of God An oracle is a prophetic pronouncement. Malachi is a record of the oracle of God to the people of Judah. It was given about 400 years before the coming of Jesus at a time of rebuilding the nation. It was at a time when things were not going well for the people of Judah and they ...read more

    The church and our lives should be one of generosity and giving.

    Giving It Away 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Most Christians know this verse. Martin Luther penned the word “sola” in the margin of his Bible emphasizing ...read more

    Money is a major challenge for anyone who wants to be a follower of Jesus and a child of God.

    As we look at his life we will see that there were no less than four times that he came to a decision point for change and growth – which is the way it works. We don’t grow steadily through life. In fact we are more like climbers...

    You may never get the kind of recognition or applause that you might like or that you see others getting for doing the same kind of work. But Jesus tells us in the Sermon on the Mount that the Father sees what is done in secret.

    UNSTOPPABLE: Serving Others July 20 Knowledge Understands – Values Transform Knowledge Understands – Values Transform Values determine who we are.

    What do we know about Onesiphorus? You’ve probably never heard of him before. He isn’t famous. His life is barely a mention on the page of a letter from Paul to Timothy. Here was a man who was simply a humble servant.

    A Servant’s Heart I heard a story about puny and weak man. He was always sick but he couldn’t afford to see a doctor. He lived in the deep back woods in an old log cabin, his condition seemed to grow worse every day. One night, in a very real vision, God told him to go out there and push a ...read more

    People are lonely and lost. They desperately need to know the love of God. They need to know that no matter how much or how little they possess, what they have or have not done, or where they have been, that God loves them so much that he gave his son,
