Making Jesus Your Treasure

Jesus said “where your treasure is there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). So we must make the right things our treasure.

Colossians 3:1 (ESV) “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.”

If Christ is our treasure it will be evident because we will be seeking spiritual and heavenly things. We will lay aside fleshly desires to gain heavenly ones. Remember Paul said, “For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” (Colossians 3:3). Note these powerful points:

  • “We are citizens of heaven” (Philippians 3:20)
  • “We are strangers and sojourners” (1Peter 2:11)
  • “God supplies our every need, and we can do all things through
  • Christ who is our strength” (Philippians 4:13, 19).

When we enjoy having Christ as our Savior above living a worldly life of sin we will lay up treasure in heaven. We will long to have fellowship with the Lord. Our hearts will yearn to be united with Him for eternity come judgment day. We each will have the strength to overcome the wicked one in our lives.

In the words of these songs…

“He is my everything,
He is my all,
He is my everything,
Both great and small
He gave His life for me
Made everything new
He is my everything
Now how about you?”

“Oh how I love Jesus,
Oh how I love Jesus,
Oh how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me.”

Did Christ raise you from the dead (sin and death)?

If not you can have that blessing today. You need to believe that Jesus is the Son of God (John 8:24), You need to repent and turn to Christ (Luke 13:3). You need to confess Him as Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10). Then you need to be baptized for the remission of your sins (Acts 2:38). You will then be added to the saved by God Himself (Acts 2:47).
