Where Is Your Treasure? - Matthew 6:19-24

October 1, 2022 Pastor: Terry Embke Series: The Life of Jesus Christ

Topic: Study of the Life of Christ Passage: Matthew 6:19–24

100222...“Where Is Your Treasure?”...Matthew 6:19-24

Matthew 6:19-24...“Don’t collect for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But collect for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don’t break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. So if the light within you is darkness—how deep is that darkness! No one can be a slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot be slaves of God and of money”

1 Timothy 6:10...“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and by craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains”

Sermon In A Sentence: Our best investments are spiritual investments because they’re the only ones that last forever.

Where Is Your Treasure?
-Jesus condemns the selfish use of assets and resources
-Jesus commends the wise stewardship of assets & resources
-Jesus confirms that its your heart that knows what you treasure
-Jesus cautions against having a clouded spiritual vision
-Jesus contends that it’s impossible to treasure both God & your assets

Matthew 19:21...“Go, sell your belongings and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me.”

Matthew 19:23-24...“Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘I assure you: It will be hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven! Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.’”

Matthew 19:26...“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”

1 John 2:15-17...“Do not love the world or the things that belong to the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. For everything that belongs to the world— the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride in one’s lifestyle— is not from the Father, but is from the world. And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever.”

Luke 16:10...“Whoever is faithful in very little is also faithful in much, and whoever is unrighteous in very little is also unrighteous
in much”

1 Corinthians 6:19-20...“Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body”
