Watch the Hour of Power online and on television (Saturday at 6PM PST on TBN, Sunday at 8AM EST/PST on Lifetime)
by Bobby Schuller
Today, we're talking about money. Yeah! And before we do that, I just want to say a couple of things. First, to those of you who are watching on television, if you're ever here in Orange County, come and visit us. We want to meet you. I would love to give you a big old bear hug and thank you for watching our program. If you're ever in Orange County or near Disneyland, we're seriously only a bike ride away. Come down and visit us. We're at 9:30 and 11:15. We'd love to see you.
Previously on the Hour of Power
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Faithful in the Little Things by Bobby Schuller
So today we're going to continue talking about money. We're going to talk about it for a while because money is at the center of how our society values people, businesses, etc. When someone asks about your net worth, they mean how much do your assets exceed your liabilities? They don't mean how important you are to people, which is one reason why that phrase is horrible. So we need to talk about how people associate value with how much money they have or earn.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Strategy for Non-Anxious Living by Bobby Schuller
So, today, we are continuing a conversation about money. And particularly we're talking today about how money is related to worry. Do you ever worry about money? If you don't, you're either a liar or a saint! Yes, we all worry about money. It doesn't matter how rich you are, it doesn't matter how poor you are. If you think about money, you probably worry about money, and today's message is essentially this, that you don't have to worry - not about money, not about anything if you treasure God and if you let God treasure you. If you treasure the things of God and you allow God to treasure you, you don't have to worry. Worry is all about what you treasure and who treasures you.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Money, Worship & Beauty by Bobby Schuller
How are we doing this morning? Today we are continuing our conversation "Money in the Kingdom of God." If you don't have your curriculum, get it. There is a bunch of them in the back. If you're watching on TV, write to us. It's free. We put this pamphlet together and it really helps, as your week goes on, to give you, essentially, a devotional or a study guide to follow up on many of the things that we're talking about.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Joyful Givers by Brad Formsma
Good morning. It's such an honor to be here. I have such a history with the Hour of Power. When I was eight and nine years old, living in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the time, and thinking I didn't want to go to church, I would start to establish a fake or an artificial cough. And if that didn't work, then I would go to the next sales step, which was, "Mom, you know, I can watch church on television." When I did that, I would see this church service, which didn't look like church. It looked like heaven, some kind of form of paradise. I'm in Grand Rapids, Michigan in February. There's no sunshine, there's nothing happening. And so it's so good to be here. It's an honor to be here, and I'm looking forward to what's going to happen this morning.
- Money in the Kingdom of God: Desire by Bobby Schuller
Glad you came here to Shepherd's Grove. For all of you watching on TV, if you're in the Orange County/L.A. area, come on down to church. We want to see you. We're only a bike ride from Disneyland. So come here and then go to Disneyland. We hope you come and visit with us whenever you're nearby.
- Life in the Spirit: Worship All the Time by Bobby Schuller
Today we're finishing this series the "Life in the Spirit." Everybody say, "Aww...." I know; it's a bummer. Everybody's enjoyed it, including me. And I've been getting great feedback about this study of the Holy Spirit. I'm glad to see that the church didn't leave after last week's somewhat Pentecostal sermon.
- Life in the Spirit: Empowerment & Spiritual Gifts by Bobby Schuller
The day has come, my friends, when I come out of my Pentecostal closet because today we're going to talk about the charismatic gifts and their appropriate place within the life of every church. God is doing something amazing in the world today. Something that used to be, over the last hundred years, as being only in a Pentecostal church has now permeated just about every tradition in Christianity. Whether it's through the Calvinist Church or the Catholic Church, people are calling it a charismatic renewal. Believers in every tradition are finding a power that has always been in them to transform the world around them.
- The Inner Voice of Love by Bobby Schuller
How we doing, friends? So today we're on chapter four of our series "Life in the Spirit." We talked about hearing God's voice. It's the first nuts and bolts about how we discern, as Christians, God's will, God's voice, where God is leading us. And today is part two of that because I'm still going to be talking about hearing God's voice but in a different way. Not in the issues of discernment but rather the inner life of love. There is this love that is made available to everyone in Jesus Christ. And when we attain that love, it blesses all other loves. When that relationship is thriving, all other relationships thrive.
- Seek God's Plan by Nick Vujicic
Wow, today is really a special day. It is our last taping Sunday for the season, and it's a fitting one because we have such a tremendous honor to hear who I think is one of the most gifted and compelling teachers and speakers in the world today. Today we have the real pleasure of hearing from Nick Vujicic. Nick, of course, many of you know who he is. He was born with the tetra-amelia syndrome that is, essentially, that he was born with no arms and legs. And that is a compelling part of Nick's story, but I really feel like Nick's message transcends that. There are many speakers and authors who have disabilities, but Nick's ability to invite people into the love and the spirit of Christian living, is something that is matched by almost no one. Let's welcome with some real energy, Nick Vujicic.
