Don’t limit yourself to your mental understanding. Just get on board like getting on a plane taking you somewhere that you have no clue how to operate. 

2 Corinthians 8:7-9

If I don’t purpose to walk in grace, my default is my ability.

His ability empowers me to do what I can’t. 

The voice of grace should have a higher influence than any other voice if I’m abounding in grace. 

Grace doesn’t come through earning but just through receiving. 

Jesus was wealthy and lost everything on the cross. 

Blood of Jesus is INFINITELY greater than sin. Stripes on Jesus’ back are INFINITELY greater than sickness. Should be the same application with lack and poverty. 

The church tends to un-spiritualize money and gets squirmy about it. 

The only way the world can stop the church is when we need their money. 

There are some traits that are cultural, but some that are inherent. Mankind inherently resists lack. 

Luke 5:1-8

The first thing that challenges Peter is that he had already been fishing all night when Jesus told him to go back out and let down his nets. Jesus was a carpenter, not a fisherman. Peter has to confront his own knowledge and tradition. Their avenues for prosperity, their nets and boats, were destroyed by God’s way of doing it. Peter didn’t respond as a sinful man when Jesus was preaching, but after seeing the prosperity. It exposed his condemnation and sin conscience. We resist prosperity because it exposes the fact the we don’t feel we’re worthy of it. 

Deuteronomy 8...God humbled the children of Israel by giving them manna every day. When you don’t feel like you’re worthy...go get it. 

Matthew 14:22-32

Peter has drastically changed. He sees the impossible and asked Jesus to tell him to come. He now sees Jesus not just as redeemer, but an invitation to walk different. He knew the power was not in the education, but in the invitation. 

Wealth is part of our identity.
