We use the term "economy of God" often at the Vineyard, which is based on Matthew 10:8 that says "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!" So what do we have to give? Mercy, grace, forgiveness, justice, love, spiritual gifts, resources, and material possessions. This is "our stuff" freely given to us by God. We don't own it, we manage it. So how do we treat it? Do we hide it away or do we put it to work, planting it and growing seeds of the kingdom?

Through confessing sins to God, we can experience freedom through Jesus.
