+ Do we need to change our congregation’s “stewardship culture?”
+ What does that mean? You know about culture, like the Greek culture,
the youth culture, the drug culture – well, every congregation also has
its “stewardship culture!” What is our culture? Do we need change?
+ “The stewardship culture of a congregation involves the unique customs,
values, and artifacts of the people who make up the congregation.”
+ The life of the Christian is the life of being a steward. Christians are
stewards, just like being witnesses, whether we want to be or not!
+ Stewards are Christians who recognize the Lord Jesus not only as their Savior,
but also as the God Who made them and continues to bless them with life.
+ Either we are stewards who please our Lord or displease Him!
+ As God’s stewards, therefore, we Christians desire to live lives which bring
praise and honor to our God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!
