An Investment in Eternity

Your life gravitates in the direction of your greatest desire. Let’s read,

"I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it."

Psalms 81:10

“If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

‭‭John‬ ‭15:7‬ ‭‬‬

The word translated as “Ask” is aitēsasthe which can also be translated as ”call up” or ”demand.”

Right after reading these verses, the next question to ask yourself is “What do I want?” Do you want more money so you can buy a nice car? Or build a bigger house? Or do you want more money so you can sponsor the Gospel even more?

Cause trust me, you’d get what you want.

Paul said,

“I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake, I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:7-8‬ ‭

I’m not saying having the desire to get a car or get a house is wrong, I’m asking what’s your greatest desire? What takes up most of your time? Why do you do what you do? Where do most of your resources (money, skill, etc) go to? Are you simply targeting the things of this world?

Jesus said,

“Do not store up for yourselves wealth here on earth, where moths and rust destroy, and burglars break in and steal. Instead, store up for yourselves wealth in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and burglars do not break in or steal. For where your wealth is, there your heart will be also.

‭‭Matthew 6:19-21‬ CJB

If at this point you realize that you need to do more for Him, don’t fret rather rejoice cause knowledge has come to you. All you need to do is act according to what the word says and begin to live for Him.

Talk to The Holy Spirit, He’d direct you on what to do.

Blessed be God.
