For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry”
It was that ominous day in 1912 when the Titanic began to sink. A frightened woman got into the lifeboat that was ready to be lowered into the sea.? Suddenly she asked to return to her room. She had three minutes before they would leave without her.? She ran across the slanted deck and passed by all the money in the gambling room.
When she got to her room, she pushed aside her expensive jewelry and grabbed three small oranges. She ran back to the lifeboat and quickly got in.
Colossians says, “Set your hearts and minds on things above….???
Dear friend, when faced with eternity, our perspective changes.? What the world considers priceless does not compare to Jesus Christ.
Pray and study God’s Word every day.
A heavenly future with Christ is the most precious jewel you can possess!
