True Christianity is costly, and will require personal sacrifice, and the things we must be willing to sacrifice are the most important things in this life: houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and father, farms and land. Yet at the same time, according to the words of Christ, we can know that the things which we sacrifice and give away will come back to us a hundredfold, not only in this life, but in the life to come. It is this truth that frees us to meet the needs of others, especially orphans.
This sermon corrects the heresy of the prosperity gospel, which teaches that if we trust God and follow His instructions, He will give us health, wealth, and success in this world. The biggest problem with this view is that it makes God into a way to get earthly treasures, instead of seeing God Himself as the great treasure.
