TOPIC: What Matters Most in Life – Avoiding the Wrong Pursuit
SCRIPTURE: For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is possible to work for God and not walk with God, and still end in hell.
MESSAGE: It is certain that when we do not know what matters most in life, we end up wasting life’s energy in the wrong pursuit. Therefore, in order to avoid the wrong pursuit in life, knowing and doing what matters most in life is crucial.
Today, we are looking at more of the things that matter most in life.
1. Eternal deposits: It is not the amount of money in your bank account but the eternal deposits in your kingdom account with God that matters most. You may have billions in your earthly bank account but zero in your account with God in Heaven, that is a waste (Mathew 16:26).
2. Making a difference in time and in eternity: It is not the income you make on the earth but the difference you make in time and in eternity, that is, the lives you allowed God to change through you that is what matters most.
3. Quality of Eternal Crown: It is not the cost of your hair style but the quality of the crown that awaits you in eternity that matters most.
4. Intimacy with God: It is not just how active you are for God in service but how intimate you are with Him that matters most. It is possible to work for God and not walk with God, and still end in hell.
