Now and Then

To gain eternal life, we must leave all for Christ. We must forsake all. We must give what we have, to gain a place with Jesus. In the words of another, "We must loose what we cannot keep, to gain what we cannot loose."

Earthly pleasure is but for a moment, but heavenly joy is for eternity.

To love God more, we must love ourselves less. To serve Him better, we must forget ourselves. We must lay aside all our selfish wants and wishes for Him. To bring Him glory and honor is our main purpose in life.

Keep your eyes on things above, the things that will neither rust nor fade away. The things that are eternal.

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there you heart will be also."
Matthew 6:19-21
