FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO
by Sam Sweg
Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
What are your thoughts and what is your heart filled with in your life? What do you think and dwell on all day? Is Jesus the Great Treasure in your heart? If your heart is on earthly treasures then Jesus and His Loving Presence will not be there.
1 John 2:15-17 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Matthew 22:38 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
Your life will always be controlled by where your heart is. If your heart is on the approval of this world or the cares and desires of this world. Then that is what your heart will be filled with heaviness, sickness and heartbreak and without The Love and Presence of Jesus in your life.
Matthew 13:45-46 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
You are what you eat and drink. The same thing goes for what your heart is dwelling on. If it is on Jesus and His Words then The Presence of Jesus and The Life of God will flow through you like a mighty river. If your heart is distracted on the world the demonic death of the world will make your life empty with out The Presence of God Almighty. Jesus will only Abide in a heart that is open and fully seeking Him.
Colossians 3:1-4 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Matthew 6:33-34 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
