We have each been given a brief span of years on this earth. During our lifetime we can choose to invest our thoughts, our time and our treasures in the things of this world, or we can choose to invest them in eternity. Jesus said if we live for earthly things, we will actually miss life altogether, but if we live for Him and the gospel, we will discover what true life really is. So, when you take an honest look at your life, where are you investing yourself?
Blessed are the Pure in Heart
What are the requirements for gaining entrance into the kingdom of heaven? Church attendance won’t get you there, nor will giving money or being a good person. The only way we will ever be accepted by God is to have a pure heart, but the bad news is, none of us can attain a pure heart through our own efforts. We must have our hearts washed clean by the blood of Jesus. That alone will put us in a right standing before Him. Have you ever believed in Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins, or are you trying to earn it yourself?
