where is your treasure?

(o:  Right now, I’m listening to my brother play, and all I can do is smile.

Last night was a monumental night for America.  We will see how much change there will be.

I’m sitting here with my guitar on my lap.

All I feel is peace.  I am not worried about anything.  Worrying isn’t good.  Now is not the time to worry.  Now is the time to rejoice in the LORD, for He has created this day. (see verse 24)

All that aside.  This morning I was inspired by something a friend wrote.  He wrote about Jesus, and how He should be the only one we love.  His point was this: that we cannot serve sin and God.  It just isn’t possible, and it is all together wrong.  Which brought to mind Matthew 6.  Here are the verses that came into my head:

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.  The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.  If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!  No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other.  Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”  ~Matthew 6:19-24

You cannot serve God *and* sin.

You should not want to serve God and sin.  Don’t let sin get in the way of your relationship with Christ.  If you really, truly love Jesus, you will give your whole life to Him.  Joy and peace come with knowing the perfect Saviour.  So don’t worry, just lean on Jehovah.

..now I’m off to write a song.
