Senior Pastor Marty Grubbs continued in the Sermon on the Mount series focusing on what we treasure. In his most famous sermon, Jesus touched on many topics, including the difference between earthly and heavenly treasures. As Marty explained, Jesus tells us:
• What we typically treasure is temporary
• We need to think long term
• What we treasure has our affection and focus. When you love someone, you treasure what they treasure. If you love Jesus, you will treasure what he treasures.
“When Jesus becomes the treasure, we get generous eyes.” Tim Keller
“You have to look at what Jesus did. When Jesus treasured you, he treasured you sacrificially. If I want to respond to Jesus, that means I must not simply live out the cross of Jesus Christ in my relationships; I’ve also got to live out the cross of Jesus Christ economically.” – Tim Keller
