Treasures In Heaven



Promises and power! Yes, we know God’s Word is good,
Though study is important to make things more understood.
And God has sent a Helper. Thank You Holy Spirit,
Spirit and Truth, revealing God’s heart as He draws you near it.

Every moment occurring in your life, Heaven’s recording it all.
Everything you’ll ever do, until your final call.
Every little word you say is being written down up there
Even thoughts long since forgotten, you will be made aware.

A beggar named Lazarus, and a certain rich man died
As their lives were recounted: The rich man only cried.
Heaven bore true witness, to each of their given lots.
Lazarus found comfort: However, the rich man did not.

So in essence, it really doesn’t seem like such an oddly thing.
The Word says “Store up” – I'd contend it’s already happening.
You’re already sending ahead, things to be remembered.
Are you sending selfishness, or proof of a life surrendered?

When your testimony is poured out...Oh! What will it be?
You think you can defend yourself, up in eternity?
We need to take God at His word and consider every day.
Much too late for sad regret when your life being replayed.

Since The Word implores you now, send treasure on ahead.
No such thing as things that will not matter when you’re dead.
It’ll either be seen as gain or loss, so why not make it count?
A selfish life is to your blame, in shame you will be found.

Empty words, like empty calories only add useless weight.
Makes sense that The Bible speaks against strivings and debate.
Gentle words and godliness. Like love, these do not fail.
Affording us treasures in glory; more than tongue can tell.

To obediently store treasure; here is where you start:
Minister to people’s needs in sincerity of heart.
Strive for holy conversation; give glory to The Son.
Let Him transform you and finish the work that He’s begun.

Regrets are sure, for none are perfect. Yet how much will they weigh?
Compared to a life lived in humility, consecrated every day.
Eternally saved, but a real reality is we can suffer loss.
Make a conscious, daily effort to see His crown, despite your cross.

Here’s The Word:

Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

1 Corinthians 3:13 - 15 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

1 Timothy 4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

2 Peter 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

Luke 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

Matthew 6: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.


In Him,
Cros

If these words could only emblazon themselves upon our spirits. We are often so flip and careless with the words we let come out of our mouths.

Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Lord, word my mouth....

Good teaching son.

For God wants us to build up & not tear down. While we have tendencies to be vocal... love out loud!

Continue to give food for thought, my Friend.
