What You Do with Your Gold is a Worship Question
April 08, 2018      |     By: Sam McVay, Jr.      |      Category: Sermons

Sam discusses the plunder, the "gold", that is ours when delivered from captivity: affections, time, resource. Worship is the articulation of what you do with the affections of your heart and with your actions.  John 4:23 says the Father seeks true worshipers, those who worship Him in the Spirit and in truth.

Exodus 12:35-36 (NIV)
35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing.
36 The Lord had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians.

Gold: Affections, Time, Resource

Exodus 25:10-11 (NIV)
10 “Have them make an ark of acacia wood—two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.
11 Overlay it with pure gold, both inside and out, and make a gold molding around it.

Exodus 25:17-22 (NIV)
17 “Make an atonement cover of pure gold—two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
18 And make two cherubim out of hammered gold at the ends of the cover.
19 Make one cherub on one end and the second cherub on the other; make the cherubim of one piece with the cover, at the two ends.
20 The cherubim are to have their wings spread upward, overshadowing the cover with them. The cherubim are to face each other, looking toward the cover.
21 Place the cover on top of the ark and put in the ark the tablets of the covenant law that I will give you.
22 There, above the cover between the two cherubim that are over the ark of the covenant law, I will meet with you and give you all my commands for the Israelites.

Exodus 32:1-5 (NIV)
1 When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.”
2 Aaron answered them, “Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.”
3 So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron.
4 He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, “These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”
5 When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of the calf and announced, “Tomorrow there will be a festival to the Lord.”

There is a war of worship on the planet that started in heaven.

What are you doing with your gold?

The Father is seeking your worship.

Luke 19:10 (NIV)
10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

John 4:23 (NIV)
23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
