A Lasting Treasure!

“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33)


Matthew 6:19-24

"19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23 but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness. 24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” (Matthew 6:19-24, ESV)


“If we want to know where the center of our being is, all we have to do is honestly admit where our treasure is. The image we see in this spiritual mirror may be terrifying, but the reflection is gracious, for then we can do something about the situation, with God’s help.” ~ Kent Hughes


22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23 but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness.”


“If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” (Matthew 19:21, ESV).


“When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.” (Matthew 19:22, ESV).


“24 No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.”


“The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it”. (Proverbs 10:22, ESV)


LIFEGROUP NOTES SESSION 7

BREAKTHROUGH: GENEROSITY IS A HEART ISSUE!


BIG IDEA

As Jesus starts the Sermon on the Mount, he begins to lay the foundations of a radical way of living, a counter cultural outlook on life. In the beatitudes, Jesus reminds us that our salvation is not based on how we live or what we do, but instead on God's grace in our lives. These qualities he lists are not simply good things we should do, but instead are a response to the grace God shows us in salvation. Jesus unpacks how God defines "the good life," turning our way of living in the world upside down.
