W.I.I.F.M. - What's In It For Me?

W.I.I.F.M. - What's In It For Me?

October 17, 2021 | Pastor Gary James

Do you ever ask “W.I.I.F.M. -What’s In It For Me?” Our society thrives off of a free-market system as we “shop” to find items that meet our needs. In our quest for salvation, we may “church shop” to meet our perceived needs. Join us today as Pastor James discusses Jesus’ position. Ultimately, by foregoing our perceived needs, we give ourselves away, serve the Lord, and we no longer ask “W.I.I.F.M.” In return, we receive the greatest place of honor in Jesus’ kingdom because he did it “for us.”
