MFM Daily Devotional 2nd March 2021 Today Message – Lay Your Treasure In Heaven
You are reading Today’s MFM Daily Devotional for Tuesday 2nd March 2021; written by Pastor D.K Olukoya. May you be blessed as you read on.
TOPIC: LAY YOUR TREASURE IN HEAVEN
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 19:16-22
OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 2ND MARCH 2021 TODAY MESSAGE
The rich young ruler came to ask Jesus a question. The question he asked was how he might have eternal life. Jesus answered the man by telling him that he needed to obey the commandments of God and the rich young ruler asked Jesus which of the commandments He meant. Jesus said, “You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery, etc. The young man said, “All these I have kept from my youth up.
What do I still lack? Jesus added, “Go and sell that thou hast and give to the poor and thou shall have treasure in heaven then come and follow me.” The Bible says that, the man of great possession went away sorrowful when he heard Jesus’ response. You can tell by the reaction of the rich man where his heart was. His heart was controlled by his wealth and riches.
He was not willing to let those things go in order to follow Jesus. There are many examples of people who laid up their treasures on earth. Their hearts were set upon the earthly things. They were willing to disobey God for the sake of temporal riches that do not last. Where is your treasure? Are you like the rich young man? Are you earthly- minded or heavenly-minded?
Are you investing in eternity or you are investing here now? Jesus used three examples of things that can take away these temporary investments they include: moth, rust and thief. What you deem valuable shows you where your heart is. Is it money? Is it position? Is it wealth? Is it power? Do you desire to be a recognised leader?
Begin to X-ray yourself now to know where your treasure is. Is it your family and how you have raised great kids? All these are temporary compared to eternal things that are permanent (1 Pet. 1:3-6). What an awesome thing to know that, as believers, our inheritance is waiting for us. We will inherit eternity and be with Christ.
Beloved, you can lay treasure in heaven by living the way God has asked you to live, by obeying Him in all that you do and by your love for His word. Where is your treasure? I pray that you will put your treasure in heaven and you will be rewarded, in Jesus’ name
Memory Verse: James 5:3 – “Your gold and silver are cankered and the rust of them shall be a witness against you and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days”
Motivational Quote: He who lays up treasures in heaven looks forward to eternity.
Prophetic Word: Powers that want to eat up your labour of love in the vineyard of God shall be imprisoned, in the name of Jesus.
Hymn: The King Of Love My Shepherd
1. The King of love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am His
And He is mine forever.
2. Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow
With food celestial feedeth.
3. Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me,
And on His shoulder gently laid,
And home rejoicing bro’t me.
4. In death’s dark vale I fear no ill
With Thee, dear Lord, beside me;
Thy rod and staff my comfort still,
Thy cross before to guide me.
5. Thou spread’st a table in my sight;
Thy unction grace bestoweth:
And O what transport of delight
From thy pure chalice floweth!
6. And so thru all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never:
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever.
1. I shall not labour in vain, in the name of Jesus.
2. I overcome worldliness and materialism, in the name of Jesus.
3. O Lord, empower me to lay my treasure in heaven, in the name of Jesus.
4. Spirit of confusion on my Christian journey, depart now, in the name of Jesus.
5. I will not work in the vineyard of the Lord in vain, in the name of Jesus.
6. O Lord, arise and rearrange my life, in the name of Jesus.
7. O Lord, help me to live to your expectation, in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Num. 16 -17
