How Rich Is Jesus?

That question is called clickbait. I ask that ridiculous question to get a response. Why did I do this? Because I want to share with you a powerful truth about the level of provision God wants to bring into your life. Read Philippians 4:19 again. In this verse, Paul is not trying to report on the financial disclosures of Jesus Christ. He does seem to make a statement as to the level of the provision that is available to us.

God desires to meet our material needs. Paul just finished telling the Philippian church about how much they are a blessing to him. He is now in a place where he has need of nothing materially. This is partly because of their contributions toward his ministry. Paul said that their contribution given to him was actually given to God. God was using their financial/material contributions to help Paul.

This sets the stage for the verse for Paul to say “my God” will provide for you. His God is His Provider. He is telling them that the same God Who provides for him will provide for them.

But what is the level of provision God wants to bring to them and you? Is the level of provision large or small? Does God only give barely what is needed and sometimes not even that OR does God go above a beyond to provide for us? To those questions, Paul says that God will meet their “needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” It seems that God does not meet the need according to the need but according to some other measure. That measure is what is in Christ Jesus. One might say that the level of surrender a person makes toward Jesus Christ they will receive an unlimited supply bought by His total sacrifice.

This Christmas, which is called a season of giving, let’s trust in His provision. He calls us to be givers because He is a giver. What do you need? Are you willing to trust that God is willing to provide for you? Have you surrendered everything to Him?

This Sunday we will unpack this verse further.

We love you. We are looking forward to seeing you at Evangel North Church Sunday 9 AM & 11 AM, and Wednesday at 7 PM.

We need a sign. (Note: The picture of the sign will look quite different than the one pictured above. For instance, it can not be a changeable LED sign.) 

In order to increase the visibility of the church, we need another sign. One of the issues with our building is that it is largely hidden by the apartment complex. When you examine churches that are growing today, they are largely visible from main roads. We can not move the building. We can not move the apartments. Our current sign is in poor condition and sits very low to the ground. We can increase the visibility of the church with a high-quality sign. This is especially important now due to the increased traffic on Veterans Pkwy and Green Tree Blvd.

Ask God What Your Part Is

A high-quality sign is not cheap. It will cost over $12k to purchase the sign and get it installed. That is not a lot of money for God. Ask God what He would have you give. Some may want to set a faith-pledge of $500, $1000 or more.

Let’s get this done!
