When God Is First

Transferring Ownership into His Hands

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

What if God were first in our lives and in the life of our local churches? How would we affect our culture, our neighborhood and the world? How would we view our time, our finances and our talents? This series of messages shows why God wants us to become a church of irresistible influence just like the believers in the book of Acts. 

Warning: You may be deeply changed when you make the transfer of ownership from your hands to His.
