Identity Theft: Securing Who You Are

id

This week’s FREE eChart covers 8 keys to understanding your identity in Christ. Stand firm in your faith as you deepen your understanding of what it means to be chosen, justified, accepted, free, and sealed by Christ with this week’s Free eChart.

Recently, I … along with up to 70 million other Americans… received an email bearing bad news — our insurance company, Anthem Blue Cross, had been hacked. The company graciously offered to set up special alerts to quickly inform me if someone is trying to steal my identity. Of course, I opted for the extra security as I thought, “Lord, you are my protector… I REALLY don’t want to deal with this.” This event quickly reminded me of how the enemy wants to steal our identities in Christ. He comes to “steal, kill, and destroy” the irrevocable callings and names that God has given to us personally. But, it also reminded me of the security I have in Christ. So, here are some reflection questions I’ve been thinking about and that you can use with this Free eChart:

  • What are some practical ways we can remember who we are in Christ?
  • How does knowing that your identity is secure in Christ affect how you see yourself and others?
  • How can we make sure the enemy doesn’t “steal” our peace, our joy, and our confidence?

This week’s Free eChart covers just 8 of the 30 keys to understanding our identity in Christ featured in Rose’s Who I am in Christ pamphlet.

3 Things to Know Before You Pray

3 Things to Know Before You Pray

What does the Bible actually say about prayer? Many religions out there emphasize the need for prayer, but how is it different for Christians? Do some people get special access to God? Is there a prayer technique or formula that will get you what you want? Fortunately the answers to all these questions are found in God’s Word. Scriptures also are able to answer the tough questions like Why didn’t God answer my prayer? Why should I pray at all?

Let’s take a look at 3 important things to know before you pray as well as their scriptural bases:

  1. God cares for you: Because of God’s unfailing love for us, we can bring anything and everything in our hearts to God in prayer. Prayer is a safe place of trust.
    • Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.–1 Peter 5:7
    • I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.–Psalm 52:8
  2. God hears your prayers: God Almighty is listening. Because we are his beloved children, no prayer is too small for him to hear.
    • He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea.–Psalm 102:7
    • How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you.–Isaiah 30:19
    • For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer.–1 Peter 3:12a
  3. You can pray with confidence: You don’t have to be a prayer giant to come confidently to God in prayer. As believers, we can all equally approach God because of our unique standing in Jesus.
    • In him [Jesus] and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.–Ephesians 3:12
    • Let us approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.–Hebrews 4:16

At its base, prayer is talking with God. We can pray alone or in a group; silently or aloud; using a written prayer or a spontaneous one. But to be in prayer is more than just speaking words. Scripture portrays a life of continual prayer, meaning a kind of openness toward God in all we do (1 Thess. 5:17). Our entire lives should be prayers to God, exhibiting the praise and love of our Creator and Savior.

Biblical Ways to Manage Your Money

financial_lit

Did you know that April is Financial Literacy Month? This week, let’s look at how we can apply that to our lives as Christians.

When we think about how to view money through the lens of the Bible, Proverbs is always a great place to start. Also known as one of the Wisdom books of the Bible, Proverbs was written to persuade and instruct God’s people to pursue wisdom and godly living. Think of it like the original self help book — except Proverbs is timeless and divinely inspired compared to the modern versions of today!

15 Key Bible Verses About Money

  1.  Avoid bribes of all sorts

    A greedy man brings trouble to his family, but he who hates bribes will live.–Proverbs 15:27

  2. Stay out of and pay off all debts. Do not borrow what you can’t pay off.

    Do not be a man who strikes hands in pledge or puts up security for debts; if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.–Proverbs 22:26-27

    The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender–Proverbs 22:7

  3. Work when it is time to work, and be disciplined.

    Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.–Proverbs 10:4-5

  4. Be wary of coveting what is not yours.

    A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.–Proverbs 14:30

  5. Stay away from fraudulent schemes and business partners

    Food gained by fraud tastes sweet to a man, but he ends up with a mouth full of gravel.–Proverbs 20:17

  6. Be generous.

    He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done.–Proverbs 19:17

    A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.–Proverbs 22:9

  7. Be mindful and tactful with your resources, but do not hoard your possessions.

    People curse the man who hoards grain, but blessing crowns him who is willing to sell.–Proverbs 11:26

  8. Do business with honor.

    The wicked man earns deceptive wages, but he who sows righteousness reaps a sure reward.–Proverbs 11:18

    A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.–Proverbs 21:6

  9. Earn and manage your money in moderation.

    Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint.–Proverbs 23:4

  10. Use smart saving tactics and avoid get-rich-quick schemes.

    Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.–Proverbs 13:11

  11. Your reputation is worth more than your wealth.

    A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.–Proverbs 22:1

  12. Stinginess leads to poverty. Pray and ask God to show you the motivations of your own heart towards money.

    A stingy man is eager to get rich and is unaware that poverty awaits him.–Proverbs 28:22

  13. Put humility, fearing/loving the Lord, and righteousness before wealth and success.

    Humility and the fear of the Lord bring great wealth and honor and life.–Proverbs 22:4

    Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.–Proverbs 11:28

  14. True wealth comes out of wisdom and not riches.

    How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver!–Proverbs 16:16

  15. Good, honest labor is more fruitful than chasing pleasure.

    He who works his land will have abundant food, but he who chases fantasies lacks judgment.–Proverbs 12:11

Prayer for Today

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for all the finances and possessions that You’ve blessed me with thus far. Whether the wealth is material, spiritual, or relational, I thank You for it all and commit it into Your hands. Today I want to lift up my finances to You, and recognize that it all belongs to You, Father. Please teach me how to be obedient to Your voice, to be a better steward of my money and to give generously. May all the glory, honor, and blessing be unto You! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
