The First Quarter of 2018, January, February and March, The Lesson Quarterly is entitled, "Stewardship, Motives of the Heart.". The Principal Contributor is John H. Matthews, who is currently the North American Division Stewardship Ministries director. Pastor Matthews, D.Min., from Andrews University, is an ordained minister who has served in Florida, Alabama, Iowa, Missouri, Tennessee, and Nebraska. The editor is Clifford R. Goldstein.
As Christians, we need to recognize our sinful condition before we see a need for change. This change can come only and thoroughly through Christ working in us. And one expression of His work in us is in the area of stewardship. Although stewardship encompasses many different asects of the Christian's life, we will define it now, broadly, as manging tangible and intangible possession for the glory of God.
As taught in the Bible, stewardship becomes, among other things, a powerful tool against the dangers of materialism (the love of owning things) or worldliness in general. Many people fail to realize that wealth and possessions are cheap, artifical seasonings that eventually lose their flavor. The ways of the world--"the lust of the flesh, and the lust of he eyes, and the pride of life" (1 John 2:16)--can all be tempered, even avoided through the principles of stewardship lived out in our lives.
That is why this quarter we will look at stewardship and what it can teach us about how to live as God would have us live, which includes freedom from the love of the world in all its manifestations. Stewardship is the daily practical expression of what it means to follow Jesus; it is an expression of our love for God, a means of living out the truth that we have been given in Christ. We are stewards because God first loved us.
Morning Worship Service starts at 11:00 AM
Our Pastor, Mark Magnussen, will usually be with us on the second Sabbath of the month. He will also be with us on the fifth Sabbath and that occurs once each quarter. When the Pastor is not able to be with us, one of the Church Elders may present a message. At other times, a DVD featuring a promenent Adventist Minister, may be shown. Usually a Fellowship meal is planned on the Sabbath that Pastor Mark and his wife, Claudia are here in Hemingford.
Please see the Church Notes in The Hemingford Ledger for this weeks scheduled speaker and topic. Visitors are welcome to attend any of our services. A warm Christian Welcome awaits you. Maranatha, The Lord is coming soon.
