Stewards - Not Owners
I. The Bible tells us that God owns everyging.
A. (Psalm 24:1) "The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein."
B. (Psalm 50:10-12) "For every beast- of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills .... for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof."
C. (I·Iaggai 2:8) "The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts."
II. God’s stewards know that God owns everything.
(King David said this as he gave to build the temple)
A. (1 Chronicles 29:14) ”...who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? fer all things come gf mg, and gf thine own have we given thee."
III. God’s stewards don’t give to God, they redistribute for God.
IV It is now time for God’s stewards to redistribute the wealth of the King of Glory through the local church.
