What Rich People Buy – Admonition 206

2019-09-04T09:13:36-06:00By |Admonition|

Scripture:

James 1:9-11

Description:

Summary:

The rich buy things, but the Bible gives us an insight into what the rich ought to buy if they want to be successful beyond this life. Failure to purchase this one asset has been the downfall of more rich people than any failure. It has brought about millions of dollars in losses, and tanked whole companies.
No cashflow analysis will show you this… the one thing that matters most for a rich person to possess.”

Scripture:

James 1:9-11 – Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits.

Transcript:

And now, Admonition.

Riches in this life can buy you a lot of things. It can buy you position; it can buy you prominence. But friend, if you’re rich and you’re a member of the body of Christ, may I encourage you to allow your riches to buy you humility? James chapter one, James writes, let the lowly brother (physically)… the lowly brother glory in his exaltation… Those who are poor, those who are lowly in this life, God exalts them. …But the rich in his humiliation. If you’re going to be happy about something and you’re rich, if you’re going to be happy about something today, may I encourage you, be happy if you’re humbled. Be happy if you’re lowered; be blessed in humiliation. It’s hard to be rich and serve God.

What kind of person do you have to be to obey God? – Admonition 166

2019-07-04T23:56:47-06:00By |Admonition|

Scripture:

Philippians 2:8-9

Description:

Scripture:

Philippians 2:8-9 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name

Transcript:

And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.

What kind of person do you have to be to obey God? I know one characteristic that is absolutely required. We read about it in Philippians chapter two concerning Christ. We read Philippians two verse eight: And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore, God also has highly exalted him and given him the name, which is above every name. In order to obey God, we, like Christ, must humble ourselves. We must decide to bring ourselves down and not be concerned about what happens next and God can lift us up.
