Fix Our Eyes – Jesus' Warnings about Money: "God said to him: 'Fool!'" (Luke 12:13-21)
On Sunday, Rich kicked off our new sermon series titled: Fix Our Eyes on Jesus and everyday life. He focused on Jesus’ warnings about greed as he walked us through the parable of the rich fool found in Luke 12:13-21. We saw three foolish attitudes we can have towards our possessions: they’re mine (v.16-18), they will keep me safe (v. 19-20), and I need more (v. 21). Jesus points us to the truth that “one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15b). The cure for our foolishness is to receive God’s radical generosity, allowing his grace to transform us so that we can then give with radical generosity to others.
To hear and see more from Sunday, watch our condensed worship service below:
Our new website is almost live! Currently the site is down as we transition to the new look but should be fully functional by Wednesday. We hope you will enjoy the new design and navigation. Our desire is for you to have an improved experience as you search our sermons, group opportunities, volunteer offerings, and much more! We also hope that newcomers will more easily get connected at the Chapel. Let us know if you have any questions!
Thank you for praying for our Lead Pastor, Travis Simone, as he recovers from the coronavirus. Travis’s health continues to improve and he is grateful for the overwhelming support of the Chapel family. Please continue to pray for him, his wife Nina, and their four girls, as well as for all those who are experiencing the spiritual, physical, emotional, and economic impact of this virus.
