10AM Sunday 6/23/19 “Godliness & Prosperity” 1Timothy 6

We evangelical Christians need make no apology for our beliefs. They come in a direct line from the apostles. We can check the tenets of our faith against the beliefs of all of the church fathers, and they will check out one by one. Then check them all with Holy Scripture, and again they will prove solid. What then is the trouble that lies over the church? The answer is we are too relaxed, and too comfortable. We hold the faith of our fathers, but it does not hold us. Are we spiritually blind? God has committed the most precious of all treasures to us, but we are not committed to it. God has set eternity in our hearts, and we have chosen earthly things instead. Jesus wants us to be attracted to a glorious tomorrow, but we settle for a dull today. We improvise and muddle along, hoping for heaven, but not eager to get there. We are correct in doctrine but weary of prayer, and bored with God. Oh Lord give us ears to hear & eyes to see!
