VerseD: Colossians 3:1

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Colossians 3:1, ESV

We should not be focused on earthly goods and fame. Rather, we should “seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness” (Matthew 6:33) to be shared with the world, to make Christ famous.

VerseD: Matthew 6:19

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal”
Matthew 6:19, ESV

It is okay to have money and possessions, but our main focus and desire should be for heavenly things: the Lord’s righteousness, God’s glory, souls won through the Gospel.

VerseD: Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
Matthew 7:13‭-‬14, ESV

We should not be surprised that “the world is going to hell in a handbasket,” for we have been warned by Jesus. It does not mean we should like it.

We should strive to make sure we are on the narrow path and bringing as many along for the ride as we can.

VerseD: Revelation 21:4

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:4, ESV

God’s people, who trust in the Faithful One, shall find the end of suffering and loss when He renews Creation. We cannot fully comprehend the glory to come nor the bliss of God’s complete presence and peace in that Day.

VerseD: Habakkuk 2:14

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Habakkuk 2:14, ESV

One day, Christ shall return. The Eternal Kingdom will reign on Earth, and all Creation shall give glory to God!

VerseD: Psalm 91:1

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm 91:1, NASB

Life can be hell. Just as relief from the hot sun can come from standing in the shade, so too can resting in God comfort us from the burning torment in this life and the life to come.

VerseD: Acts 2:21

‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
Acts 2:21, NASB

There is only one way to eternity with God: believe in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and make Him Lord of your life.

Any other path leads to eternal destruction.
