Have you ever heard of an aristocrat? Disney made a movie called The “Aristocats”. (They were cats that lived in a mansion and were rich.) The name of the movie was taken from the word Aristocrat. But since they were cats they just changed the word crat to cat.
In Ecclesiastes 5:10 It says He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity. That means money and riches will not make you happy. It says in Matthew 19:24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” But, what if someone is rich but loves Jesus and is saved? Will he enter the kingdom of God (also known as heaven)? Yes. Anyone who believes in God’s son Jesus (asks him to come into there heart and save them, and turn from there wicked ways) will go to heaven. But, not many people who are rich love Jesus. They love their money more. Read Matthew 6:19-34 It says 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 money. It also says don’t store up treasures on the earth where thieves break and steal. But, store up treasures in heaven where breaking and stealing are not. (because there can’t be no sin in heaven).
It also says depend on God for all your need, don’t say what will I eat or what will I drink or what will clothe me? God knows what you need. Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?8 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? If God can take care of the lilies and the birds can ‘t God take care of you? He loves the birds and the flowers, but he loves the human beings so much more. Jesus did not die for the flowers or the birds he died for YOU! So, if God’s son was willing to die for you and take your punishment (hell because we have sinned.) and give you a choice to either believe in his son and have eternal life or reject his son and not see life, then he WILL supply all your needs.
P.S – Jesus died and ROSE AGAIN! He did not stay dead. And he is in heaven now offering us the free gift of eternal life. I just wanted to make that clear. Jesus ROSE AGAIN! That is what we celebrate on Easter. Just like it says in Kari Jobe’s song Forever : the ground began to shake the stone was rolled away his perfect love can not be overcome. Now death where is your sting? Our resurrected king has rendered you defeated. (:
