Understanding the connection between salvation in Jesus Christ and personal finances

Salvation and Finances...Is There Really a Connection?
by Zera & Denise Hill

Now that I have accepted Jesus Christ as my savior what do my finances have to do with my relationship with God? Our natural man is inclined to believe that there is no connection, but once we accept Christ the bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJ) “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new”.

We suffered from “stinkin thinkin” before we invited Christ to be Lord of our lives and experienced salvation. Now we comprehend that a paradigm shift is needed. Maybe we could call it supernatural heart surgery, because our thought patterns now must be trained to line-up with God’s instructions. It’s a process, because our natural mind has been trained, for the majority of its life, to think like the world. The world would have us believe that the two are mutually exclusive (you know the old adage of church vs. state). But once we come into the kingdom we can no longer conform to the patterns we were taught in the world, rather our minds must be transformed, per Romans 12:2 to what God says in His word about our finances.

God has already devised an economic system, in His Word, for you and me, as believers to live by. It has absolutely nothing to do with Wall Street. It’s called tithing, offering, and giving to the poor (see Malachi 3:10, 2 Corinthians 9:6-8, Luke 12:33, and Acts 10: 2 & 4). Unless we are taught correctly, regarding these principles, we will never grasp the spirit of God’s intent for our finances.

God basically sums it up for us in Deuteronomy 8:18, (KJ) “But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day”. Saving souls for the kingdom, and spreading the good news of the gospel takes conviction (heart), commitment (time), and our finances (money) if we’re to make a positive, life-changing impact in this world we live in.

The Financial Freedom in 7 Weeks Plus workbook opened our eyes to a whole new dimension within our Christian life. It will equip you with biblical principles and the necessary tools you need to manage (steward) your finances from God’s perspective. 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJ) says it this way: “Study to show thy self approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.

Don’t stop progressing in your Christian walk, once you are saved. Press forward and become a good steward who helps spread the salvation message to the world. God’s calling all of us to help fund the Great Commission.
