The Rev. Dr. Robert Bowman: “Treasures on Earth and Treasures in Heaven” (Matthew 6:19-24)

January 25, 2008

This week the Rev. Dr. Robert Bowman of St. Luke’s REC in California returns to his series on the Sermon on the Mount, with the audio message Treasures on Earth and Treasures in Heaven, based on Matthew 6:19-24.  Dr. Bowman makes some very hard-hitting points, including this one:

We cannot serve both “God and mammon,” God and stuff. What role do your possessions play in your life? Is your life dominated by money and possessions and accumulating “stuff?” OR are you living for Christ in every area of your life, including your bank account and your possessions? Psalm 16:8. Joshua 14:8.   John Calvin said, “Where riches hold the dominion of the heart, God has lost his authority.”

How’s that for a challenge to modern materialism?
