Are pursuits, pleasures, and possessions more enticing and more exciting than the things of God and eternity?
If you claim faith in Christ yet you remain just as humanistic and materialistic as those who don’t, then something’s amiss!
I mean, Hello!?
You cannot be a man or woman after God’s own heart and still have “this ole world” by the tail!
Making a decision for Christ is not a surface thing to gain eternity. It’s not an “eternity policy” taken out in your name just in case (of fire) so you can sleep a little more confidently while you continue on in your own way, your own treasures.
Christ IS the treasure!
We should seek Him even more passionately than we seek the temporal things of this world. In fact, if you are truly seeking Him, He promises that you will find Him, and when you do, you will quickly find that He becomes the only treasure that you seek! The junk and stuff of this world will soon fade away, but the treasure that is Christ remains with you for eternity (and you with Him).
“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” (Col 3:2) NKJV
