It is by grace that we are saved, through faith. Now, dead to sin and made alive by the Spirit—what joy awaits! What hope! What peace!
The treasures of this world pale in comparison to those promised by faith. So, what does it look like to store up treasures in heaven?
“Setting our eyes on what is unseen rather than what is seen”, we “seek first the kingdom and his righteousness” and trust that everything else will be added. Is God faithful? Does your heart know it very well?
Freedom from sin. Abundant Life. Fruits of the Spirit. The promises of God are our victory, and we find them in His Word. To trust Him with salvation is to trust that His treasures are worth the surrender. Worth the sacrifice. Worth the investment of our whole selves.
My story has been redeemed after a decade battle with depression and self harm. (I wrote a book about that journey! View it by clicking HERE.) Now, “to live is Christ” and my writing reflects this cry of my heart.
Though I myself am but a cracked clay vessel, yet the glory of God can shine all the brighter.
May all that I am, all that I do, bring glory to His Name.
