SERIES OVERVIEW

“In God We Trust.” Really? For most of us, it’s more like, “In God We Wish,” or, “In God We Have a Backup Plan.” Have you ever noticed how easy it is to trust God with things you can’t control (where, really, you have no choice anyway…) or with the things that cost you little? Perhaps there is no greater irony than printing “In God We Trust” on our money because the truth is that our money is so often where we place our greatest trust. The Bible speaks of prayer approximately 500 times. There are less than 500 verses on faith. Money, however, is referenced over 2,000 times. In fact, 15% of the recorded words of Jesus are about money. Why? Because there is no greater suitor for your heart or threat to your soul than money. So, in whom or in what do you trust? Time to discover where our treasure really is (and our hearts) as we take a very practical look at what Jesus would not ignore – our money.

Sermon Description

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Our hearts follow our treasure, and Jesus wants your heart. So, it’s incredibly important what we do with our treasure. In light of this foundational truth, the question needs to be asked: What’s the plan for your treasure? Do you have one? How can you be sure you are serving God and not money? This Sunday at Mendham Hills, an incredibly practical discussion and guide to serving the right master. Having your financial house in order has more implications to this life – and the next – than you would think.

Sermon Description

How do you measure your life? How do you define it’s success? Is life to be measured on a happiness scale? Is it all about relationships or legacies? Jesus literally yelled out to people just like you and me, “Watch out! Be on your guard!” For what? Well, something that we get confused about regarding the purpose of our lives – something for which Jesus saved another exclamation, “You fools!” This Sunday at Mendham Hills, a lesson on what life must not consist of.

Sermon Description

Nothing competes with God for our hearts like money. And perhaps no one thing breaks up families and shipwrecks lives more than money. The love of it really is the root of all kinds of evil. This Sunday, we conclude our series, “In God We Trust,” with a look at ten biblical principles related to our stuff – five “thou shall” and five “thou shall not” commands related to our finances. Lessons on maintaining balance in life, achieving financial freedom, living on purpose, and the use of money as a tool instead of an end-goal, as we learn to live like it really is, “In God We Trust.”
