God, Money, and You

There are many things in life that compete for our attention like work, entertainment, education, faith, and family, but few are as strong as the pursuit of money.  The reason for that is we believe if we have enough money, then we can experience life to the fullest; we can pursue our wants and dreams in life unhindered.  But Christ tells us that life consists of more than what we can acquire with money. 

For the next 3-4 weeks, I will be discussing some of the key things the Bible says about money and how we should use the money God gives us not just for the pursuit of material things, but we should strategically use our money for the promotion of God’s Kingdom.  Jesus said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth where moths and rust destroy, and thieves break in and steal.  Instead, store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  Matthew 6:19-21.

As we approach this important and very personal topic, I pray you will have an open heart about what the Lord says to you about how you handle your finances.  If Jesus is Lord, then He should be Lord over every area of your life.  Pray the Lord gives you the faith and courage to obey Him in every area of your life, including how you handle your money.

1st Tidbits

November 23, 2020

  • It has 3 weeks since our Church leadership was impacted by the Corona Virus.  During this time we have been fortunate to have Dr. Danny Kirkpatrick fill our pulpit and provide encouraging messages to our church.   We encourage everyone to watch these messages each week on the FBC YouTube website or go to the Media tab above and watch these messages.
  • Expect information this week on a plan to bring us back together as a church in the coming days.
  • There will be a drive by prayer event tonight for some of our more seriously ill COVID patients.  If you want to join us, meet at Miller Waldrop at 4:00 PM tonight (Mon, Nov 23, 2020) and we will drive to Seminole Hospital to pray for our Pastor and then return to Hobbs and pray for David Brand our Chairman of the Deacons.  Come join us for this event if you are healthy and have time to come.   
  • While this will certainly be a very different Thanksgiving Holiday, we encourage each of you to stop and focus on what you do have to be thankful for and not let this current situation leave you defeated.  We serve an amazing God and soon this will be behind us. 
  • COVID Protocol

    As you aware, Southeast New Mexico has experienced a high positivity rate.   We continue to be very blessed!  All 1st members and extended family that have been exposed or tested positive for COVID symptoms have recovered.  Below is some basic guidelines for what to do if you come into contact or test positive for the Coronavirus. 
    • First , please check before coming to church to ensure you know what our guidance is so we keep everyone safe. 
    • State guidance says if a person tests positive and displays symptoms, anyone who was exposed to this person should quarantine for 14 days.  If someone tests positive but is asymptomatic, then you should self-quarantine for 10 days.    
    • It can all be very confusing so if you find yourself in any of these situations and aren’t sure, please contact the office and we can guide you as to when it is safe to return to worship with us.  We appreciate everyone looking out for one another as we go through this pandemic.
