February 11th 2016 – Investment in Eternity

“‘I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; The houses of ivory shall perish, And the great houses shall have an end,’ says the Lord.” (Amos 3:15)

This old testimate scripture from the book of Amos clearly portrays that God is upset. Let’s review the setting. The northern ten tribes of Israel in 750 BC were worshiping false gods and idols. They were prospering as a nation, and they had built wonderful houses with excessive decor. They thought things were going well because of their wealth. Amos steps in with a message from God to tell them it will all be destroyed. They were living in luxury all for themselves, but they had forgotten the Lord. God is letting them know here that those things would not last. Don’t miss the blessing here friend. Paul reminds us in Corinthians that everything we do in our selfish nature will not last. Those things we do for the glory of God will last for eternity.

(1 Corinthians 3:11-15) “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have Jesus Christ. Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials-gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.”

Let’s be real. Our house, cars, and the ‘things’ we will have accumulated during our life span will not make it into eternity. But the time we invest for the glory of God,will last forever. That is very good news.

Every minute we live to please God is well spent.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for loving me. I am grateful that I have an opportunity to live for You and will be rewarded. Please continue to give me the power and desire to live for Your kingdom, not mine. Thank you for revealing the this truth.. A vast portion of the world is still worshiping idols. I pray that we as Christians will invest into others so that have the opportunity to know You and Your Love. I pray they will learn to seek You first  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Let’s define an idol. ANYTHING other than GOD, that we love and put ahead of God therefore is an idol, whether seen or unseen, so we must be careful not to put and worship our own self before Him, our self thoughts, self decisions, self will, and self righteousness, amongst our self love before God and others. Wow to the spirit of self and it’s evil deception. Let me judge my self on the cross in and with Jesus—GUILTY AS GOD CHARGED—and We will not judge others for their wrongs, for there by the GRACE OF GOD GO I.
