Many kinds of treasure in this world
Are these idols? Are they false gods? What is a god?
that which you will sin to get
that which you will sin if you don’t get
What is our treasure?
What’s our attitude toward those other treasures?
under God’s sovereign design
given by God’s gracious hand
used for His purposes
What passes away then?
Colossians 3 passage - anger, malice, wrath, obscene talk, slander
Can we put them away? I guarantee you that when you try to stop being angry you will find more people than ever to provoke anger.
How are these things put away?
new creation in Christ
bought back from the kingdom of Satan, the kingdom of death
translated into Christ’s kingdom
more than conquerors
God’s perfect love poured out upon us
washed in grace
presented in the image of Jesus
partakers of his nature - 1 Corinthians 10 - true communion
Seek treasure! Seek true, pure, heavenly treasure! This is what our Savior has given us.
