I Am Rich sermon video. The scriptures do not teach us so much about how to GET rich. Actually, getting rich is sort of a given for the Christ Follower who walks in the ways of God. The Bible does teach much about How to BE RICH in a way that honors and pleases God. Our series is not How To GET Rich. The series is about HOW TO BE RICH. I am rich.

1Timothy 6:17-19; Ecclesiastes 5:19; Luke 18:18; Luke 18:23-24; Luke 18:25; Luke 12:48

In the days of mule drawn wagons, sometimes a carrot tied to a stick was hung in front of the animal, enticing it to step forward. Of course, the animal was never able to reach the carrot. That’s sort of what the devil does to us enticing us to chase life. He uses money, enticing us to get wealth. That’s the image for our series.

Apostle Paul instructed Pastor Timothy to preach this to rich people.

1Timothy 6:17-19  Command those who are RICH in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them TO DO GOOD, to BE RICH in GOOD DEEDS, and to BE GENEROUS and WILLING TO SHARE. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the LIFE THAT IS TRULY LIFE.

There is rich and there is BEING RICH IN A WAY THAT PLEASES GOD. A person can be rich and take hold of the LIFE THAT IS TRULY LIFE – eternal salvation.

As a child, how many wished, even dreamed when you grew up, you would be rich with wealth. I did. Did it happen? Are you rich? Most children hope to grow up to be rich, but according to you, you are not rich. Do you know, or know of, someone who is rich and wish you had that person’s money?
