This sermon was given on First Fruit Sunday, our annual service where we all sow a seed into the new year and the work that God is doing both in Detroit, and around the world. We would love for you to partner with us in reconciling Detroit back to Jesus.
everybody is familiar with investing… we are used to putting our money in something that will give us a return on our investment that is higher than what we put into it.
And when we invest… who we usually have in mind is who? ourselves. maybe our children, or our families… its not bad, and as long as you learn to be generous when you have a little and continue to do so when you have a lot, I believe there is great value in Christians doing well financially… but the point is that usually you invest so that YOU will get a financial result that positions your life in a more stable way.
but when we sow into the Kingdom of God, we do it not for what we will get in return, but because of the eternal value of the impact that seed will make is so much bigger than this world or this life.
