ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS,   Beloved of God,    John 3:16-18

EARTHEN TREASURE,    “WORTH CONSIDERING”     8/28/19    (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels…”   (2 Corinthians 4:7, NKJV)
Treasures Deep Within

You have many treasures buried deep inside of you—gifts, talents and abilities that you don’t even know about yet. But the greatest treasure within you is the Spirit of God. You carry the treasure of God in an earthen vessel! He’s also deposited treasures on the inside of you that are tied to your purpose. By His Spirit, you will discover that God has fully equipped you for everything you need in this life. We have to draw out those treasures inside of us by what we speak and what we believe. We stir up the gifts by praying in the Spirit. Don’t let those treasures lie dormant. Seek God and follow His leading. Dig deep, stir it up and move forward in the destiny God has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for choosing to live inside of me. Show me the treasures You have deposited within me so that I can fulfill Your purposes for me all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

My Thoughts:
We have a tendency to underestimate the Creator’s design and purpose for us.  We tend to see only the dust.  HIS original vision was and still is to make us into HIS Image and Likeness.   That Jesus did not break the mold for us, HE perfected the mold for us.  So our Creator’s only issue is,  in giving us a freewill is for helping us to have it activated in a positive direction to seek HIM without  any manipulation.  So Christ came to give us the example of what our potential is,  John shares it in this manner,  “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in that day of Judgment:  because as HE is, so are we in this world.”  1 Jn.4:17.

Our Creator God has even entrusted the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel into our clay hands.  That we can take the message of HIS love, forgiveness and redemption to our families and our lost world.  So as we really,  in our hearts, understand the cost of our forgiveness in HIS great love,  it can jump start us into loving HIM, ourselves and each other.  All in 1 John 4…  Should take time to read the whole letter of 1st John from time to time.  It will help you keep your priorities in order.  It is so easy to get caught up in the winds of the world and forget that our time on earth is less than a second in eternity.  We should invest our time in exploring why GOD created us and what would be the very best investment of our very limited time on earth.  That in humility we need to find and keep HIS commandments and learn how to be changed to be able to live with our Creator for a very long, long eternity.
