Romans 12:1 -2

(12:1) I Beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

(12:2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

You may be seated…

Subject of todays message is: Got Million dollar ideas but my minds on Credit…

Got Million dollar ideas…

But my Minds on Credit…

There was a guy and His name was …… (find out who the winner of th e lottery is)

This guy is a self proclaimed “easy going guy”

Never had much…

Never wanted much…

Worked a regular job and lived a regular life…

He was the kind of guy who never took more than he needed…

And never needed more than he took…

A gentlemen … A family man … Good community citizen

This man named xxxxxxxxxx won 300 million dollars just a few weeks ago with big lottery that was held around the country…

And xxxx, this man was on Television and after winning these dollars they asked him whether it was going to change his outlook on life…

And he said something like , “Im just not a changing kind of guy”....

In other words… When I was poor I was this way … When I was working 10 hours a day at the factory I was this way…

And now as someone blessed I am going to stay this way…

Now of course, only he and the Lord know whether he will remain humble and sincere in this way but this is an example of someone who understands that money could not and should not change the mind set of someone…

Money (or the lack thereof) should not be the definer of your personality …

Or the driver for all of your emotions and actions…

And even the Bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil and that we have to choose… You cannot love God and Mammon…

For you will love one and hate the other…

In other words you will ultimately choose one over another …

And just as the scripture bears out that wherever your treasure there your heart shall be also…

The reality is that The Love of money is just as hemmed into Idolatry as any cult that you can read up on …

The reality is that people in general have a passion for the pursuit of prosperity and provision but they have no purpose…

And without a purpose we lack a key ingredient to our success…

A Vision…

And without a Vision the people will perish…

But beyond that without a vision you cannot see….

And when you cannot see…

You will be misdirected, misguided and often times mistaken…

And when your vision is misguided, misdirected and mistaken You may have a million dollar idea but your mind is still on credit…

Your mind is credit

When something is on credit it is on a time schedule before the payoff…

It’s on borrowed time…

Its on someone elses nickel…

And Its when your situation is on credit… One thing is for certain…

the payoff that you are making is not to yourself…

But we have to ask ourselves… Because you are royalty…

You are given wisdom…

As we talked about last week You are given the God’s Riches and Glory …
