Our Treasure

What does God need from us to fulfill His purpose, His will, His plan?

NOTHING. NOT A THING.

God desires a real and personal relationship with His people. He wants us to surrender our possessions,

So then, none of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions. Luke 14:33 NASB

Our very life, our will, our all.

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.             Romans 12:1 NASB

Surrender of our will, our purpose, our way.

But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Philippians 3:7 NASB

Self-centered versus God-centered. Worldly minded verses spiritually minded.

🌹 Where is the treasure of your heart buried? In the world or in heaven?

I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are.  As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.     John 17:11‭, ‬18 NASB
