Application For The Fighter Verse For May 5 and 6

Luke 12:32-34

Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

It’s good to hear Jesus say, “Fear Not”, isn’t it?

But to what fear is Jesus referring?

This is right after the passage where he says, “Do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on”

And we do think about those things a lot. And Jesus says, “Fear not”, because we can trust God to not only give us the temporal things we need, but the eternal, and much more significant things. He wants to give us the Kingdom!

We have a God who wants to give us the kingdom.

And what would we do if we really believed that. We would do good things. We would give things to those who need them. And this would be good for the needy person.

But I find it interesting that Jesus motivates us by saying that we are doing good for ourselves as well. We our providing for ourselves more eternal, non-steal-able, non-destroyable treasure.

That’s what we’ll do if we really don’t fear.

That’s pretty big.
