God or Money (Luke 16:1-15)

One of the major themes of Jesus’ teaching, as well as the rest of Scripture, is the sharp distinction between the kingdom of this world and the kingdom of God. You either belong to the kingdom of light or the kingdom of darkness. Your values are informed either by the world or by the truths of the gospel. You either worship God or you worship idols. Simply put, there is no neutrality when it comes to God (Rom. 8:7-8;  2 Cor. 6:14; Jas, 4:4). And nowhere is this distinction more obvious than when it comes to our money and possessions. In this sermon, Pastor Dave expounds the parable of the dishonest manager to show that one cannot serve both God and money, but that those who are in Christ Jesus possess true and better riches.
