kjv@Matthew:6:19-24

kjv@Matthew:6:19 @ Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where mothand rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal;

kjv@Matthew:6:20 @ But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

kjv@Matthew:6:21 @ For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

kjv@Matthew:6:22 @ The light of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

kjv@Matthew:6:23 @ But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

kjv@Matthew:6:24 @ No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. Despite our perceived image to be independent and free from control, we are precisely the opposite. Much of the proof of that is that we despise and hate the counter demands God places upon us. One would think that they have no controls placed upon them until there comes God, but God is showing them that they have been under another's control all along
  2. It may be supposed that the mere belief in Jesus or God or religion alleviates the controlling factors, but actually the tension only increases as now the eye is on two masters. The body can be filled with this type duplicitous believer and is, effecting it's every movement until the Lord performs His work on them. The tension doesn't end their either as faith is now called into obedience and action
  3. The eye or focus of the body here in the States has become a clash between several masters while it rather should solely be on the person and work of Jesus Christ upon His body and our obedience within that.
