TOPIC: INVESTMENT INTO ETERNITY THE MOST IMPORTANT INVESTMENT IN LIFE
(FROM AUGUST 2018 SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
THURSDAY 9TH AUGUST,”2018
SCRIPTURE”: In the morning sow thy seed,”and in the evening withhold not thine hand”: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper,”either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. Ecclesiastes 11″:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Making investment in heaven is the most important investment in life.
It has been confirmed that investment into eternity is one of the most important things if not the most important thing in life.
One of the challenges of people is earthly consciousness; they invest greatly on earth without any investment in heaven. One reason the rich do not want to hear about death is their massive investment on earth. When they are sick,”they are easily agitated and want to know the outcome of a test the doctor runs on them because they do not want to die; they have money, houses and cars everywhere but they have no investment in heaven. This is not how to live. Making investment in heaven is the most important investment in life.
When you use your money to build a church, give to the poor and evangelistic outreaches, you are making investments in heaven. When you are an aggressive soul winner, you are making investments in heaven. This is how to live. I am aware that I have some massive investments in heaven. For example, the money I have spent for God and His cause alone in the previous year, I have not spent it on myself, my parents, wife or children; probably, I cannot spend such money on myself and family for the next five or ten years. There are souls I have led to Christ that are already there in heaven and I am looking forward to meeting them.
Beloved, I want you to live for what really matters when it matters most in life; live for what will matter when your clothes, money, cars and houses do not matter anymore.
Remember this”: Making investment in heaven is the most important investment in life.
1. Maintain an upright living; flee from iniquity.
2. Decide to invest into eternity by giving for kingdom purposes and the less privileged.
3. Determine to win souls for God.
PRAYER: O Lord,”I receive Your grace to invest into the expansion of Your Kingdom on earth and also to empower the less privileged. I receive Your help to win souls for the Kingdom, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
