Secrets of God's Economy

This past Sunday, Pastor Josh launched a brand new message series, titled Secrets of God's Economy. In his first message of the series, we take a look at secret #1 of God's economy by exploring eight areas of life that God designed us to manage.

Message Notes

Did you miss any of Pastor Josh's notes this week?  We've got you covered!
Matthew 16:19 (NIV)
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Mark 4:11 (NIV)
He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables.

Secret #1 - God’s economy requires a kingdom mindset.
Economy - To maximize the minimum

Matthew 25:29 (NIV)
For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.

Secret #2 - Everything I have comes from God and belongs to God. I am not the owner.

Secret #3 - One of the primary reasons God created man was for management.

Genesis 2:4-5 (NIV)
This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground,

Genesis 2:15 (NIV)
The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Secret #3 - One of the primary reasons God created man was for management.

Management is the effective, efficient, correct, and timely use of another individual's resources that they delegated for the purpose of producing the expected added value back to the owner.
  • God doesn’t send growth until he has someone to work/manage it.
  • God’s primary measurement for trusting you is management.
  • God gives to effective managers.
  • Whatever you fail to manage you will lose.
  • Good management attracts resources.

8 Types of Economy:
Financial - assets or physical possessions which can be converted into a form that can be used for transactions.
Spiritual -This economy focuses on a person’s heart and their relationship with God.
Soul -This economy is about two kinds of intelligence, emotional (EQ) and intellectual (IQ).
Physical - This is about how well you take care of your body.
Social - This concerns your friends and family — your “network.”
Influence -This is the level of inspiration you have on the world around you.
Community - This economy is focused on how you improve the lives of others.
Generational - This is how you pass on all the other streams of economy to the next generation.

God doesn’t give you what you pray for; He gives you what you will manage well.
