The Lord is still watching the Treasury

.…but this is far different than a contribution reminder.  Mark 12:41-44 says, "And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.  And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.  And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, verily I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:  for all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living."

This passage could have many interpretations, but perhaps everyone agrees that Jesus was looking at the completeness of the contribution or sacrifice and not the amount.  The scriptures record not the amount of the contribution of the rich, but to tell us how small this poor widow’s contribution was, so that we could focus on the 100% she contributed (all that she had).

While the example is the financial contribution to the treasury, the point is much broader.  He wants all our heart, soul, mind and strength.  Matthew 22:37 says “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”

I believe this contribution/sacrifice still applies when we deny our self, when we make time to worship during church times, when a brother or sister needs encouragement or whatsoever our hands find to do.   James 4:17 is unrestricted,  “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”..…and we don’t want to hold back any part of that contribution.

In Acts 5: 1-5 we read, "But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, and kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.  But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?  Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.  And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things."

With a willing, humble heart in service to the Lord, the blessing will come.  Lastly, 1Cor 3:7-14 states, "So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.  Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.  For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.  According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.  For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.  Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;  every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.  If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward."

The Potter's House

In Jeremiah, one of the mysteries of serving the Lord is revealed. Jeremiah 18:1-6 states, "The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying,  Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel."

When we come to the Lord in need of forgiveness and sanctification, Galatians 2:20 suggests we are destroyed as this marred vessel was when it states, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

… and we made new again as was that marred vessel.  2 Corinthians 5:17 says “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

While we are instantly perfect in the Spirit that God places in our hearts, what matters is our present situation today.  It seems to suggest that we remain on the potter’s wheel every day.   Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:31, says “I die daily” and with that comes Psalm 68:19 “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits”

Ephesians 4: 31-32 (KJV)

Ephesians 4:31-32 states, "Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."

This week as you interact with those around you, whether they are co-workers, friends, a stranger, or close family members; remember to always let Christ shine through you. Be a good example to everyone you come in contact with!

Have a great week!

Jeremiah 29: 11-13 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."

Matthew 5: 6  "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled."

In life, we find that there is only one thing that can satisfy our soul. We can seek many things, but they will never bring contentment that comes from seeking and finding God and His righteousness.  When we find that which can only be found in a true relationship with God, our heart delights in peace.

Have a blessed week!

Camp Meeting

Our thoughts turn to our 79th Annual Camp Meeting being held in Perry, GA from July 15th through July 22nd.  

"But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching…" Titus 1:3  The preaching of the Word has always been the primary function of the church, and we have a rich heritage of anointed preaching in Christ's Sanctified Holy Church.    

Click on the link below and listen as voices from the past blend with voices of the present in proclaiming the timeless message of gospel truth.  As we prepare and attend Camp Meeting, let us all earnestly pray that the Lord will anoint the preaching of his Word for his own glory and the prosperity of the kingdom of Christ.  

"…it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe."  1 Corinthians 1:21

Your Brother,

Jeff Price
