1 Timothy 6:19: "Storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life." "Storing up" may also be translated "treasuring up" a phrase similar to Jesus' challenge in Matt. 6:9-12 to lay up treasure in heaven. A believer's daily obedience to God builds a good foundation for the time to come. The Scriptures teach that a believer's works will be evaluated to see what his or her life in Christ has produced. (see 1 Cor.3:10-15) It's the weekend!!! Be safe - have fun - enjoy your families.
THE SACRIFICE - John 1:29: "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." "Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us. I am the Lamb of God. Lay upon Me your sins, your failures, your shortcomings. My sacrifice has atoned for all. I am the Mediator between God and Man, the Man Christ Jesus. Do not dwell upon the past. You make My Sacrifice of no effect. No! realize that in Me you have all, complete forgiveness, complete companionship, complete healing."
1 Timothy 6:18: " Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share." Those with wealth are commanded to recognize God as the true source of our wealth and to be generous with our riches. The material blessings of God are to be enjoyed and shared for the advancement of His kingdom and for the Christian's life.
YOU ARE MY JOY - John 17:6 - "Thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word." "Remember, that just as you thank God for Me, so I thank God for His Gift to Me of you. In that hour of My agony on Earth, one note of Joy thrilled through the pain. The thought of the souls, given Me by My Father, who had kept My Word. They had not then done great deeds, as they did later, for, and in, My Name. They were simple doers of My Word, not hearers only. Just in their daily tasks and ways they kept My Word. You, too can bring Joy to My Heart by faithful service. Faithful service in the little things. Be faithful. Do your simple tasks for Me."
1 Timothy 6: 17: "Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God who gives us richly all things to enjoy." Paul has already condemned those who are attempting to become rich through the ministry in verses 6-10.. The second group of people Paul addresses in regard to wealth are those who are already wealthy. Paul encourages Timothy to tell the rich not to be high-minded or proud and not to trust in uncertain riches. Only the living God can provide for all of our needs.
