Scripture: Matthew 6:19,20
Matthew 6:19,20 says, “Do not lay up/thay-sow-rid-zo for yourselves treasures/they-sow-ros on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Verses 19,20 make it very clear that we have a bank account in Heaven. The Greek word they-sow-ros means a repository or bank account. Jesus encouraged and warned every believer not to lay up for themselves treasure on earth. He encouraged us to lay up for ourselves treasure in Heaven. That means we have a bank account in Heaven and we can learn to live out of it. The question is, have we obeyed? And since this is a faith operation, it is absolutely essential that we not only make those deposits by faith, but when it is time to withdraw, we move in faith also. Since Jesus commanded us not to store it up here but to store it in Heaven, there must be a way to make a withdrawal. And there is! With what we see happening in the economy of our nation, it is time every believer learned how to make a withdrawal from their Heavenly account. It is time we learned how to live out of God’s Kingdom. It is absolutely essential for the days ahead.
