Building Your Treasure
We all have treasures, things that are important to us. We read in Matthew 6:19 Jesus said:"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon 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 will your heart be also."
Where is our treasure? What is important to us? What are we working ? Do we care for the kingdom of God? Do we serve the Master, Jesus Christ, or are we not interested in the kingdom of God, and do we refuse to serve the Master, Jesus Christ? Do we have any treasure in heaven? Because the day that you die you leave everything behind and all that will matter is that which we have accumulated in heaven, those things that are important to Jesus. The souls that are being lost, do we care for those who do not know Jesus Christ? Are we pointing the lost to Jesus? Are we building the kingdom of God or are we building earthly treasures, working for things that cannot satisfy, working for things that have no eternal value?
If we do not have a treasure in heaven we will not have an inheritance in heaven either. Where is our treasure? Here on earth or in a kingdom of God? What is our expectation? What makes Christians think that they will have any inheritance in the kingdom of God if they have no treasures in heaven, if they do not care for Jesus and they do not care for the kingdom of God? Where is our treasure? Do we have a treasure in heaven? Because where our treasure is there our heart will be also.
May Jesus bless you.
