Worship Message:   "Who is This Man" (part 1) 

Message Provided by: 
Pastor Bill Bossert, DMin.

Text:  Colossians 1

When Jesus had gone with His disciples to Caesarea Philippi to rest, He asked them "Who do people say the Son of Man is?"  They responded that some people were saying He was like John the Baptist, others like the prophet Elijah or Jeremiah.  Then Jesus asked them, "But what about you? Who do you say I am?" (See Matthew 16:13-15)

The disciples were always trying to figure that out?  They walked and talked with Him every day, but He would do things that suggested to them that He was no ordinary man.  They really didn't get the idea of who He was until after Jesus' resurrection.

It's the most fundamental question we can ask - Who is this man, Jesus?  The answer to that question has an effect on our belief systems and our faith.  This Fall we will look closely at that question drawing from different Bible writers who give us solid answers.


STEWARDSHIP THOUGHTS:  
LOCAL CHURCH BUDGET

A father wanted to teach his pre-school son the value of work and money, so he would have his youngster perform simple tasks and then pay him a nickel or a dime.  One day, after the father emptied the contents of his pocket on the table, his son inquired about the relationship between the bills and coins.  "If I get enough coins, can I have a bill?  he inquired.  Proud of his son's sudden interest in math, his father informed him that either 20 nickels or ten dimes would make one dollar.  The following week the son sat at the table in front of his father and displayed all "Can I have one dollar?" he asked.  Proudly, the man handed over a dollar bill.  However, the boy began to gather the dimes.  The father quickly said, "Son, you don't get to have both, the dimes and the bill. "  The little boy broke out in wailing, declaring the unfairness of the situation. This boy learned a lesson that many adults struggle to grasp.  Credit cards, 90 days same as cash, and lines of credit are examples of acquiring things artificially.  When the money is spent, it is gone; but people use credit to artificially feel like they saved "the bills and the coins."  However, God's math defies logic.  The Lord says, "Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this. . .If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it"  (Mal. 3:10).  God can do more with less.  Let us partner with the Lord today to meet our local church needs according to His math. ------------------ John and Sylvia Ronsvalle, At Ease: Discussing Money and Values in Small Groups.
