Treasure

on March 20, 2013

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:21

We all have things we enjoy in this life and things that are valuable to us. We have things we have worked years to earn or things we’ve collected over the years.  However, Jesus warns us about our treasure.  It’s so easy to get caught up in the things of this world: the responsibilities, the relationships, the recreational activities, and the possessions.  It seems that Satan is trying on every hand to keep our minds on anything but God.

Although we have many opportunities to stray, we have to be very careful to keep our eyes fixed on the true treasure… Jesus Christ. The closer you get to God by spending time hearing the preached word, studying the Bible, and prayer, the more you will see that Jesus is the true treasure.  He willingly submitted himself to the Father’s will so that we could inherit eternal life.  There is nothing more precious than that! Today I challenge you to enjoy the treasure God has given you in Jesus Christ.  Lean on His promises and trust His Word.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3;16
