“Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them on the day of the Lord’s wrath.” In the fire of his jealousy the whole earth will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live on the earth.”
Most believers find themselves searching and or attaining all the riches of this world. Some people abandon their relationship with God in the process, others ignore their families and destroy the relationship they once had with them, their friends and all loved ones. Some become so consumed that they must acquire these riches at all cost. They spend all their time and put forth all their effort into material things that can evaporate in a blink of an eye. We search for the resource without first searching and finding the source who is the grounds for all the resources they seek. For this reason, most people have all the money in the world but they lose themselves and their lives because they have no peace. They have everything they want but the one thing that their souls are in dire need of.
Do not lose sight of God in the mist of your unyielding desire to have all the riches in this land. The only possession you need in this life is Jesus Christ because if you have Him them you have all else. Your riches cannot save you. No amount of silver or gold can pay the price for your soul. Your salvation is embedded in Christ Jesus and he alone can save you. The day of the Lord is near. His judgment will soon be upon us. Stop seeking out material things and start seeking out the Savior. The very element your soul needs to survive is Christ inside of you. Seek that daily, do not throw Him away in search of things that cannot hold you.
