Scripture: Luke 16:15-16
Luke 16:15-16 says, “And He said to them, ‘You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God. The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it.’” What was Jesus saying? True riches come from a covenant relationship that moves God’s Hand in the earth. True riches are the intimate relationship that you and I develop with God as we pass His character tests that are revealed in Scripture. This enables us to walk with Him and move His Hand in the earth, just like the prophets and the men and women of God in Hebrews 11. There is a whole new Faith’s Hall of Fame that will be written and we should make it our aim to qualify for it. Will we pay the price to gain true riches now? Will we embrace the character of the King? Eternity is waiting to see.
