Right On The Money: Me, My Stuff and God

Few things get more of our attention - or get our attention more - than money. Every day it is earned, spent, borrowed, saved, wasted, given, hoarded, worried over or wished for. You probably know that the Bible has a lot to say about money. About 15% of the words in the Bible are devoted to it. Given that God owns everything (Psalm 24:1 - 2), you have to wonder why he spends so much time talking about it. Maybe that's because he knows us so well. Jesus said, "Where your treasure is, there your heart is also." In other words, we put our hearts into the things we treasure. And if money - and all it can buy - has our hearts, we're in trouble.

Sermons in this series

Through the Eye of a Needle
Jesus once said that it’s harder for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God than it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. Forget all the clever explanations you may have heard that attempt to drop the degree of difficulty in that saying. Jesus meant a real camel and real needle. Funny thing is, a few verses later Jesus encounters a rich guy who doesn’t just enter the Kingdom – he sticks the landing!
What Dreams May Come
There's an old story about the world's first economist. It has lots of twists and turns and a suprise ending. And believe it or not, it's in the Bible! Join us for the next installment of Right on the Money.
Which Rich?
We continue our series on money by quoting words from the great philosopher/theologian, Don Henley: "You don't see no hearses with luggage racks."
Treasure Chest
Jesus said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth.” Does that mean God wants you to liquidate your retirement? Cash out your savings? Is Dave Ramsey going to hell because he told you to “store up” an emergency fund? Of course not. Jesus isn’t preaching against “treasuring” things. But he is confronting us about which things we treasure.
The Eyes Have It
Given that God owns everything (Psalm 24:1-2), you have to wonder why he spends so much time talking about money. Maybe that's because he knows us so well. Jesus said, "Where your treasure is, there your heart is also." In other words, we put our hearts into the things we treasure. And if money - and all it can buy - has our hearts, we're in trouble.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

As someone who has been a member of Twickenham since the beginning, there is no place that I would rather be. I appreciate that we have an eldership that bases decisions on biblical principles rather than tradition. There is a broad spectrum of people who come from different backgrounds than those of us who were raised in the church of Christ and I feel that it has been beneficial. I like that Twickenham has been a part of the community instead of isolating ourselves from other denominations.

The many ministry opportunities that members can find to participate in. The uplifting worship services; the praise team is wonderful! The children's programs. I love that we have young families as well as older members worshipping together!

. . . this church has been a HUGE blessing to our family. When we came to Twickenham, I felt like we were spiritually dying on the vine. Since coming to Twickenham, God has had us on an amazing journey that is sometimes hard and sometimes beautiful - but either way I know we are both diving deeper into Him! Yay!
