Experienced a humbling and inspiring service today at TVCC. This was week two and the service title was Eternal Perspectives. The topic was Where is Your Treasure?
We have a tendency to put our time, energy and resources into acquiring “things” or doing what we want to do. Greed and selfishness are the lies Satan sells. He tries to tell us God and his Kingdom won’t make us happy. Satan tries to convince us “things” make us happy. Doing what we want to do when we want to do it is the key.
However, the Bible tells us not to put our very best into treasures here on earth because… well… we all die! We can’t take “things” with us. We must guard against greed. Because the truth is riches have no purchasing power when we are dead! So what can we do?
“For God loved the world so much that he GAVE his one and only Son…” John 3:16 (NLT). Stop and think about that for a minute. Let that sink in. God loves us so much he allowed his Son to be a sacrifice for our salvation. How much do we love? How much do we give? Our focus should be on seeking and building the Kingdom of God through that type of love and giving. Therefore, we should devote time, energy and resources to our family and people in need. Through example, let’s leave a legacy IN our children, not to them.
The video at the beginning of the service and that concluded at the end really hammered this home. So very powerful! To fully appreciate the message please go to www.tvcc.us to watch the service in its entirety. As always thank you brother Steve Gallimore for your inspiring messages!
