Sunday Morning Worship (9:30 AM)

Sermon Text (1 Timothy 6:6-10):

[6] But godliness with contentment is great gain, [7] for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. [8] But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. [9] But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. [10] For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs. (ESV)

This Sunday we will be continuing our study through the book of 1 Timothy. Here in our text (6:6-10) Paul warns Timothy to be on guard against covetousness and the love of money. 

As harmful as false teaching is (which Paul warned about in the previous passage in v.3-5), it is often covetousness and the love of money that leads many to ‘wander away from the faith’ (v.10). No wonder the Bible has so much to say about money! The love of money (not money in and of itself) leads to all kinds of other sins and evils. It is a trap and leads to many a temptation.

Not only does our Lord tell us that we cannot serve both God and money (Mark 6:24), but Paul tells us that covetousness or greed is “idolatry” (Colossians 3:5), and is a sin that bars one from the kingdom of God (Ephesians 5:5)! How easily we fall into such temptation!

We hope that you will join us for worship this Sunday! If you are unable to attend in-person, see our YouTube channel for the live video feed starting @ 9:30 AM (PST).

Sunday Night Bible Study (6 PM)

We are starting a new study series going through the Westminster Shorter Catechism! If you have ever wanted to learn the basic essentials of the Reformed faith and the teachings of the Word of God, this is almost certainly the right study for you!
