Treasure, week 1 – Rusty Hutson – November 5, 2017
Matthew 13:44 – “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.”
The kingdom of Heaven/God is wherever the will of God is done.
Time – how much time do we devote to advancing the Kingdom of God. Thru serving and loving.
Money – how much of our money do we give to advance the kingdom. To help the church continue to reach out
Relationships – how are we handling our relationships in a way that is Godly and a positive witness to those around us. How are we reaching out to those who don’t know the Lord and genuinely investing in them and showing them the love of Christ.
Future – how are we laying down our big plan to God so he can show His direction for our life.
Matthew 6:19-21 – “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
