"RICH & BROKE"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
 
AS A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN, WE HAVE A WEALTH OF RESOURCES AT OUR FINGER TIPS. JUST THINK FOR A MOMENT, SOMEONE PUTS ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN A BANK ACCOUNT. THIS PERSON TELLS YOU IT IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET IT OUT. YOU RECEIVE THE PHONE BILL, ELECTRIC BILL, AND A NOTICE THAT YOUR INSURANCE IS DUE, WHAT DO YOU DO? YOU CHECK YOUR POCKET AND FIND ONLY SOME CHANGE. THE CHILDREN ARE HUNGRY AND THERE IS NO FOOD AND NO MONEY, WHAT DO YOU DO? DUH! I WOULD GET SOME FROM THE BANK. WELL, THAT WOULD SEEM LIKE THE THING TO DO, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET IT OUT. SOME MAY SAY, I WOULD FIND OUT HOW, I WOULD ASK HOW, OR READ THE DIRECTIONS. JUST CALL THE BANK AND ASK, OR DRIVE DOWN AND TELL THEM THAT YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET THE MONEY OUT. I'M SURE THAT THEY WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP YOU. IT SEEMS SIMPLE. IF IT IS SO SIMPLE THEN WHY ARE THERE SO MANY PEOPLE SUFFERING IN THIS WORLD? WE HAVE AN INSTRUCTION BOOK, THAT GIVES US STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS FOR EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE IN OUR LIVES. SOME DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT THE ANSWER IS IN THE WORD OF GOD. SOME DON'T EVEN THINK THAT GOD WOULD HELP THEM. SOME DON'T KNOW WHAT ALL GOD OFFERS. MANY ARE STRICKEN WITH HEARTACHE, POVERTY, AND SOME WITH FEAR. IT IS AN EVERYDAY STRUGGLE FOR THEM TO LIVE. JUST LIKE THE MILLION IN THE BANK, GOD HAS A STOREHOUSE FULL JUST WAITING ON US. BUT MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED, BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT I CAN DO. I'M LIKE YOU IF SOMEONE PUT A MILLION IN THE BANK FOR ME, I WOULD FIND THE WAY TO GET IT OUT. IF WE REALLY WANT THE THINGS GOD HAS TO OFFER, WE WILL FIND OUT HOW TO GET THEM. WE DON'T WANT TO LOOK LIKE A FOOL WHEN IT COMES TO THE THINGS OF GOD, BUT TO GET THE MILLION WE DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK. WE ARE RICH YET WE LIVE THE LIFE OF A LONELY POPPER. WE DON'T HAVE TO THOUGH. JESUS WANT US TO PROSPER, IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE.

     Friend: Would you let us know if this sermon has led you to the Lord, inspired you to re-dedicate your life to the Lord, or simply been a Blessing unto you?
