Do you chase after the empty box or do you chase after the treasure chest

"It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good." Galatians 4:18 New International Version?


Do you chase after phantom pleasure or do you relish the real thing with zest?


Which one do your pursue in your life: the material things of the world, you know, the latest toys like the newest mobile phone or the newest fashion or the newest diet to get a fourteen year old body into a forty year old man or woman? At the end of the day you have an empty feeling deep in your soul like there is something more.


Or do you seek the treasures of heaven. The chest that contains the most valuable treasure there is, a close relationship with Jesus? That is where you will find fulfillment in life. That is where you will find contentment and joy.


Now where is your zeal for Christ?


How much time do you spend reading His divine love letter to you (the Holy Bible)? How much time do you spend talking with Him? No, not being a selfish oaf and only talking with Him when you want something. Would you want a friend like that? They only call you when they want something, the rest of the time you are invisible in their live? Of course not. I have had many relationships like that and speak from experience to say it is degrading and insulting to you to have those types of friends. So too it is with Jesus. Spend time just talking with Him as you would your best friend, because that is what Jesus wants, to be your best friend as well as your king and savior.


"My zeal for God and his work burns hot within me" (Psalm 69:9 Living Bible).


When you find a great restaurant or a great film do you keep it to yourself or do you share it with others?


Well, how much time do you obey the command of Christ to go unto the ends of the earth to share the Gospel? Now you don’t have to go to the ends of the earth. How about your neighbor or classmate? How about your co-workers or anywhere Christ opens the door of opportunity for you?


“Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you.” Matthew 28:19-20 New International Version


"Your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent" (Jeremiah 20:9 Contemporary English Version).


Prayer: I treasure the precious time we spend together every day Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) and humbly ask You to provide the opportunities to share You with others. I give thanks and ask in Your beautiful loving name. Amen.


May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
