One of the greatest needs of the modern Christian church is for its disciples to swim away from the shallow banks of peripheral Christain living and plunge into the deep waters of faith and loyalty to God. Julius Scruggs

Walking in God’s Favor: He said, “That you love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and muscle and intelligence—and that you love your neighbor as well as you do yourself.” Luke 10:27 MSG

Your Creator has a purpose for your life and He is calling you to a higher level of discipleship. I love what the book of Jeremiah says in chapter 29 verse 11. “I know the plan I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans for your hope and a future”. Wow! Now that is the kind of God I choose to worship.  I know He has everything under control. When you learned to let go and let God….that’s when things started happening.

Level 4 stewards have discovered in their  spiritual journey that God’s nature is love.  That He gives each of you the freedom to discover and experience  his loving nature for yourself.  The Creator freely gives you opportunities to experience His divine love.  Level 4 steward understand that He only wants what is best for your good and His glory.

I clearly remember when I begin the process of looking for a life partner. I prayed that the woman,  I planned to marry someday, would be someone who truly loved God.  That she would be someone I could spiritually connect with. It was very important to me that we shared our love for God with one another.

I was raised in a home where I observed my parents praying  to God with one another, worshiping God with one another, and trusting in God with one another. That seemed to be high priority in their relationship.

I am so thankful for God bringing Ardella into my life. Every area I have allowed Ardella to touch in my life has turned to gold. I have prospered in my spiritual life, family life, professional life and financially  life.  For 30 years God has blessed our marriage, our family and our lives as we continue to grow more in love with Him as well as each other.

Level 4 Stewards have learned to make intimacy with God their highest priority. God is faithful. He loves you with an unending love. There are no boundaries to God’s love for each of you. You are invited  to attend our Family Finances  Class at Life University August 14th at 7pm at the First Seventh-day Adventist Church http://www.firstsdachurch.com as we teach how you can live a life of sustainable increase.
