Sermon Outline, October 29, 2017, “Faith Overcomes Debt”

                                                 Faith Overcomes Debt

 

Luke 14:28-30            For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? 29 Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’

 

Develop a Budget.

A Budget requires Discipline.

~ I Timothy 4:7-8         But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.

 

A Budget reflects Priorities.

o   First Priority ~ God

~ Proverbs 3:9 Honor the Lord from your wealth And from the first of all your produce;

 

o   Second Priority ~ Invest Savings Wisely

 

o   Third Priority ~ Pay Bills on Time

~ Romans 13:7             Render to all what is due them: tax to whom tax is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honor to whom honor.

 

o   Fourth Priority ~ Get out of Debt

~ Romans 13:8            Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

 

o   Fifth Priority ~ Plan for Emergencies

 

o   Sixth Priority ~ Use some resources for Personal Enjoyment

~ I Timothy 6:17           Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.

 

 

Eliminate Debt.

The Bible speaks about Debt.

~ Proverbs 22:7           The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower becomes the lender’s slave.

 

Develop a Plan to Eliminate Debt.

~ Romans 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

 

 

Honor the Lord.

Honor the Lord with the Tithe.

~ Malachi 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.

 

Honor the Lord with the Offering.

~ II Corinthians 9:6-8               Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;

 

Honor the Lord with the Sacrifice.

~ Luke 21:1-4              And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury. And He saw a poor widow putting in two small copper coins. And He said, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them; for they all out of their surplus put into the offering; but she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on.”
