My little group of disciples, don't be afraid! Your Father wants to give you the kingdom. Sell what you have and give the money to the poor. Make yourselves moneybags that never wear out. Make sure your treasure is safe in heaven, where thieves cannot steal it and moths cannot destroy it. Your heart will always be where your treasure is.
Luke 12: 32 - 34
What is the “Kingdom” that God wants to give to the disciples of Jesus? We have made the concept of the Kingdom of God too complicated. In simple terms, a kingdom is a realm where there is a King and there are those who listen to and obey the King!
When you become a follower of Jesus Christ, God Himself becomes your King and you live your life in obedience to His commands. It is that simple. God is the King and you obey Him!
The reason that you want to deposit your treasure in Heaven rather than here on earth is this: If you are to be a faithful and obedient servant of God you must make sure that your heart is where He is in Heaven and not on this earth! If your heart is on this earth, then you will find it hard to be completely obedient to God.
The Kingdom of God is where you will find peace and rest and eternal joy!
“Lord Jesus, I want my treasure and my heart to be in Heaven where my Father is there with You. Help me today to transfer more of my treasure from earth to Heaven. Praise Your Holy Name forever. Amen.”
