God and Money


So…what’s in your wallet?

If you say “money,” you’re certainly right. But when you say, “Hmm, actually the god of power and control,” now we’re giving a much more accurate description of what’s truly behind that green stuff (or plastic stuff) in our wallets. And when we can see it as clearly as that, we are now on the verge of breaking free from its control and power over us. And as Jesus states it so very clearly, God alone wants to be our source of power and control in this lifetime and the life to come, and through the Master’s invitation, you and I can follow Him into a freedom rarely experienced by those who stay behind, trusting what’s inside their wallets more than they trust their Creator.

Join us for a short 9-blog series (taken from A Journey into 3-C Christian Discipleship), as we open up the Bible and look a bit deeper at what God’s Word has to say about our money and possessions.


Below, you will find a complete list of all the posts (9 blogs) of this series. We suggest that you bookmark this home page for ease of use. Enjoy!

Each one of our blog studies can serve you well as a support piece in your devotional life with Jesus. As you’ll see when you open up one of our pages, each blog begins with a short scripture or reading, some thoughts to consider, and then concludes with a prayer and a question or two for you to ponder. Go slow. Walk at your own pace, inviting the Holy Spirit to join with you as you read and reflect.

Looking for more on this subject? Try our blog-series: Living Purposefully Jesus’ purposeful life was made that way, because He freely chose to allow His Father in Heaven to define His life for Him. Join us for a short 9-blog series where we’ll unpack this idea of living a Christ-centered life and explore how we, like the Master, can become recipients of God’s amazing gift to live life on purpose and to the full.
