Topic: Sermons Passage: Matthew 16:24–16:28
In his final "Momentum" message on stewardship, Pastor Mike Osborne takes you to Matthew 16 where Jesus calls his followers to deny themselves. There is much misunderstanding about the meaning of this call. Does it mean the Christian is supposed to empty himself of all desires? Does it mean the Christian life is one of drudgery and no enjoyment? Mike explains that self-denial consists of at least two things - one negative and one positive. At the end of this message, the congregation reads aloud a Declaration of Financial Peace. Go here in order to read the six declarations that summarize the entire Momentum sermon series.
