Money – Possessions

Release your grasp on the temporal – Jim Elliot

Release your grasp on the temporal – Jim Elliot

Father, let me loose my clutch on everything temporal. My life, my reputation, my possessions, Lord, let me loose the tension of the grasping hand. Open my hand to receive the nail of Calvary, as Christ’s was opened. He thought Heaven, yea, equality with God, not a thing to be clutched at. So let me release my grasp.

Christ is enough! – AW Tozer

Christ is enough! – AW Tozer

Christ is enough. To have Him and nothing else is to be rich beyond conniving. To have all else and have not Christ is to be a cosmic pauper, cut off forever from all that will matter at last.

Giving God control of our money – Adrian Rogers

Giving God control of our money – Adrian Rogers

You can sing all you want about how you love Jesus, you can have crocodile tears in your eyes, but the consecration that doesn’t reach your purse has not reached your heart.

Jesus Deals with Money – John MacArthur

Jesus Deals with Money – John MacArthur

Sixteen of the thirty-eight parables of Jesus deal with money. One out of ten verses in the New Testament deals with that subject. Scripture offers about five hundred verses on prayer, fewer than five hundred on faith, and over two thousand on money. The believer’s attitude toward money and possessions is determinative.

A Zealous Man – JC Ryle

A Zealous Man – JC Ryle

A zealous man feels that like a lamp he is made to burn; and if consumed in burning, he has but done the work for which God appointed him. Such a one will always find a sphere for his zeal. If he cannot preach and work and give money, he will cry and sigh and pray.

How a Christian Should Live – David Livingstone

How a Christian Should Live – David Livingstone

Do not think me mad. It is not to make money that I believe a Christian should live. The noblest thing a man can do is, just humbly to receive, and then go amongst others and give.
