Hello My Name is Jesus:  Our Contentment

 

Scripture reference:  Hebrews 13:5-6

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”

 

  1. The greatest enemy to our HEAVENLY CONTENTMENT is our EARTHLY CRAVING.

 

(“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have…” v.5a)

Luke 12:15– And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”

Matthew 6:24-“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

 

  1. The greatest source for our EARTHLY SATISFACTION is our PERFECT SAVIOR!
