«Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:19-21 (NKJV)
World Changer: It is important that in the moment we convert to Jesus we can take the decision to put Him in first place of our lives and that we may look to the skies and see the promise of eternal life that receives all Christians that have been born again.
Jesus Himself is the one that tells us in today’s verses that we are not toil and worry about the treasures of the earth, because they are not worth a penny the day we appear before the judgment seat of Christ. But let’s focus on the promise of eternal life where we will reign with God if we were faithful throughout our entire career here on earth.
Jesus also tells us in the Scriptures that where our treasure is, there will also be our heart and that is why we should not treasure the material and temporal of this world.
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. But we cannot serve God and money.
But let’s also take this into account, that Jesus promises to provide us with everything we need and exhorts us to be happy if we have sustenance and shelter.
*Jesus talks about the birds in the skies that do not sow, nor harvest, nor gather into barns and our Heavenly Father feeds them. And we His children are worth much more than they, so let us not worry and rejoice in the Lord with faith and hope of eternal life.
Today is the day to surrender your life to the Lord if you have not yet done so so that Christ may be in you your hope of glory and your victory that changes the world (Romans 10: 8-13, Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15: 10, 57). Hallelujah.
