Sacred Spaces (Wealth and Godliness)

  1. 1. Part Four Wealth & Godliness 1 Timothy 6:6-19
  2. 2. The Key to Wealth and Godliness 1 Timothy 6:6-8 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment. For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.
  3. 3. Philippians 4:10-13 I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
  4. 4. But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But flee from these things, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. The Dangers of Wealth 1 Timothy 6:9-12
  5. 5. The Ultimate Accountability of Wealth 1 Timothy 6:13-16 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time—He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.
  6. 6. Luke 12:13-21 Someone in the crowd said to him, quot;Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.quot; Jesus replied, quot;Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?quot; Then he said to them, quot;Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.quot; And he told them this parable: quot;The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. He thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.'
  7. 7. Luke 12:13-21 quot;Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I'll say to myself, quot;You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.quot; ' quot;But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?' quot;This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.quot;
  8. 8. The Ethos of Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited Wealth and or to fix their hope on the Godliness uncertainty of riches, but on 1 Timothy God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. Instruct them 6:17-19 to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.
