Get Heavenly Rich or Die Trying in Sin

Man is a heavenly being, if we are not building heaven in Christ, We will try to build pseudo-heaven with money on earth.

God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27

I advise you to buy gold from me–gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see.
Revelation 3:18
My Thoughts: Gold, White garments, and Salve or ointment is used again and again throughout the bible of what we acquire through a deeper relationship with him.

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
Matthew 13:44

When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.
John 15:10

This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
1 John 5:3 & Matthew 11:30

This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently, obeying his commands and maintaining their faith in Jesus.
Revelation 14:12

Reflection #1

Beware of being obsessed with consistency to your own convictions instead of being devoted to God. If you are a saint and say, “I will never do this or that,” in all probability this will be exactly what God will require of you. There was never a more inconsistent being on this earth than our Lord, but He was never inconsistent with His Father. The important consistency in a saint is not to a principle but to the divine life. It is the divine life that continually makes more and more discoveries about the divine mind. It is easier to be an excessive fanatic than it is to be consistently faithful, because God causes an amazing humbling of our religious conceit when we are faithful to Him.
