The Christian Resource Group

Opinion. Observation. Application.


I call them “Beautifully Awkward Moments” (even wrote a book about them)….where God speaks for you to do something that is awkward and you afraid how people might take it.  I was at a Church for an annual visit to preach and the Pastor showed me the new Worship Center they were renovating.  It was great work.  I asked him how things were going financially with it and he told me that he had $10,000 on his personal credit card hoping the Church would get behind the project.  I asked him if he thought the funds were in the bank accounts of the individual of the Church.  He said he thought so, because people did what they wanted to do, they just hadn’t seen the need of the Church yet.  God spoke to my heart–1.  Write a check for $1000 to the Pastor personally to put on his credit card.  2.  Challenge the congregation by saying God was speaking to 9 other people to do the same thing.  (9 people @ $1000 plus my $1000 = $10,000 the Pastor is carrying on his credit card).  The scary part is–you never know how people are going to take a financial challenge because (as Jesus taught) “where your treasure is, your heart will be also.”  Most importantly–even if I missed what God wanted or spoke to me–there is still Jesus’ teaching “give and it shall be given unto you.”  We are just “carrier pigeons” of his resources while spending our time on this planet in between our birth and death.

Every day is a Bonus Day!

Much Love,
