Jesus says our treasure needs to be the Kingdom of God within us, and His righteousness. And we know it’s true.
Matthew 13, talks about a treasure, which a man would sell all he has to obtain it. It says in the book of John, we cannot even see the Kingdom of God, unless we are born again.
Romans 14 tells us what the Kingdom of God actually is, and there are many references to the Kingdom of God besides this, hidden within our bibles for all to find, and see.
When God said the love of money is the root of all evil, He did not mean that money itself is evil. Treasuring money (and the pursuit of it) above God’s Kingdom is what brings corruption. What you treasure most, that is where your heart will be.
I have asked God what my mission really is, and what my books are all about. This is what He said to me, “They talk about being humble, knowing it’s the cure for corruption, but they don’t know how to get there. To bridge the gap, someone needs to tell them, but nobody wants to tell them at all. They are busy patting themselves on the back for all the supposedly good things they do. Others watch what they do and commend them too.
However, it’s all for nothing when it’s done apart from me (John 15) as apart from me you can do nothing. You can do something, without really accomplishing anything for my Kingdom. When you’re treasure is not the Kingdom of God, it will eat you up inside, still, you will not admit it, quit it, and claim new ground for my Kingdom. The Kingdom of God needs to be built within you.” -by Laura Grace
