Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; NOT FOR FILTHY LUCRE, but of a ready mind; 1 Peter 5:2. Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, AND YE TURN ASIDE, AND SERVE OTHER gODS, and worship them; Deuteronomy 11:16. Have you ever thought of the "Love of Money", as another god? Let's look at this from 2 different sides. First, you call yourself a Christian, and you and a few other like-minded people have decided to get together, give yourself a name, and you write "worship and praise" music, and sing your songs to anyone who will pay you the going rate. You've even cut a few CD's, and have grown popular enough to get a big travel bus. You've hit the "big time". Churches and Coliseums will pay you gladly to sing for them. You do have expenses to cover, you know, first profit, then to cover expenses. You'll gladly sing for money, and then ONLY if you get paid. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. (Is this even Biblical)? Now the GOoD News. I want to lift up Christ and Exalt His Name by telling you of a "group" of people who write their own music, sing, travel in a nice Motor-home, teach the Bible, and Testify of the Mercy and Grace of the Lord God Almighty, AND NOT CHARGE A PENNY. They go to jails, prisons, and penitentiaries to sing, preach, teach, and Praise the Lord, ALL FOR FREE. No charge, no hidden fees, batteries included. Their mission is to reach the Incarcerated Whosoevers behind the prison walls. They are working on "freeing" people from a life of sin, and helping to build the "Inside Church". They work and live ENTIRELY By Faith. They will come to your church and tell you all about what the Lord is doing in the Prisons, and then GO AND DO IT. Not for money, but for Christ. Check out Bobby and Nan McGee of Christsong Ministries. Put them, and the Inside Church, on your Prayer List. You'll find them at (This is not a link). Whoever they visit, will, Be Blessed.
