January 16th, 2016 – Sermon on “Give God your first” by Paul Pedersen

Paul PedersenPaul Pedersen describes this sermon as:

In this message, I begin the sermon series, “All In.”  God does want just part of our heart.  He wants all of it.  In this message, I talk about giving God first place.  God required first things from the Jewish people:  first fruit; first born; first part of dough; tithe.  This required obedience, but not necessarily the heart.  God wants us to freely surrender ourselves to Him and give Him first place.  This includes our giving of tithe and offerings.  Giving to God is an act of trust in Him.  Bottom line:  Give God first place.

May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

Paul used the following scriptures: Exodus 34:18-22; Nehemiah 10:35-37; Proverbs 3:4-6; 1 Corinthians 15:20; Malachi 3:10; Hebrews 11:6

    Enjoyed your sermon on “giving all to Jesus.” The real blessing to us is in the surrender. There are so many texts in the Bible regarding giving our hearts to Him. Our works are good, but when we give it all to Jesus, that means our love, our joys, our sorrows, our complete selves.

    Thankful to have you and your family here. Thanks for your visit. Blessings on you and yours. . . .
