Stewardship is an often misunderstood word, confined to tithes and offerings.  Stewardship is much broader, encompassing all of life--everything we have and are--for God owns all things and all people.  This message focuses heavily on the often neglected area of stewardship of influence.

If we are going to think like Jesus in regard to people, we are going to have to see people as Jesus saw them.  If there is anything that we know about Jesus it is that he loved people and responded to them with deep compassion.  We must do the same.

What does it mean that we as human beings are created in God's image? How does the fact that we bear God's image effect how we treat others?

The church has always been under attack, but in our lifetime the church has never been more under attack or in disfavor with  our culture  than now.  In spite of this, the church remains God's
"Plan A" for accomplishing  His purposes in the world.   There is no "Plan B".  The church is God's presence on earth and is, now and always, the Bride of Christ.

One of the greatest struggles of mankind since the Fall is understanding who we are.  We have lost our identity.  In Christ, however, we are a "new creation"--our identity changes.  The Bible gives us several images that help us understand who we are in Christ

How do we know what the will  of God is for our lives?  How does God aid us in our transformation and growth into Christ-likeness?  He has given us His inspired word through the prophets, Apostles and the incarnation of Jesus Christ.  There is nothing like it.  It stands alone with no rival and is entirely trustworthy and dependable.

The Scriptures tell us that we are created in the image of God and that we are loved by Him.  We know that we live in a broken world and the we ourselves are broken.  We know also that Jesus came to the world to redeem His broken image bearers.  But how exactly to we find our way back the heart of  God?  What must we do to be saved?

It is one thing to believe in God; that He exists and is all powerful.  But what most of us want to know is if He is good and if cares about "me".

A.W. Tozer said, "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us."  Though we can't know God comprehensively we can know Him intimately and accurately on the basis of what He has revealed of Himself.

With the old year behind us and the new one before us, what do we see on the horizon?  What do we see for us as a church?  What do you see for yourself in your walk with Christ?
