Phase 4: Reallocation

2 Corinthians 5:12-21

12 For we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart. 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not [a]imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Psalm 119:59-60 NKJV
“59 I thought about my ways, and turned my feet to your testimonies. 60 I made haste, and did not delay to keep your commandments.”

II. SIX WAYS TO BE A GOOD STEWARD

 

 

 

 

III. HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE STEWARDS
A. Thankful

1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV – “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Colossians 3:23-24 NIV – “23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”

B. Trusts God To Provide

1 Timothy 6:17 NIV – “ Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”

C. Content

Hebrews 13:5 NIV – “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Philippians 4:11-13 NIV – “11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

D. A Faithful Example

Matthew 5:16 NIV – “ In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Titus 2:7 NIV – “In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness.”

1 Peter 4:10 NIV – “ Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 NIV – “6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

E. Lives Within Their Means

F. Gives Time And Talent

1 Peter 4:10 NIV – “ Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

G. Gives Treasures

1 Peter 2:1-5 NIV – “1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. 4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

Proverbs 3:9 NIV – “Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;”

IV. This Time It’s for Him
1. Leah – Reallocation of Mindset

Genesis 29:31-35 NIV – “31 When the LORD saw that Leah was not loved, he enabled her to conceive, but Rachel remained childless. 32 Leah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Reuben, for she said, “It is because the LORD has seen my misery. Surely my husband will love me now.” 33 She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “Because the LORD heard that I am not loved, he gave me this one too.” So she named him Simeon. 34 Again she conceived, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “Now at last my husband will become attached to me, because I have borne him three sons.” So he was named Levi. 35 She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son she said, “This time I will praise the LORD.” So she named him Judah. Then she stopped having children.”

2. The Disciples – Direction of Your Talent in Action

John 21:6 NIV – “ He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.”

3. Counting Up the Cost – Habits

Luke 14:25-34 25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,26 If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,30 Saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.33 So likewise, whosoever he is of you that forsaketh, not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.34 Salt is good: but if the salt has lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
