The Biggest Investment of Your Life:

Many people have invested everything into their physical and material life.
For example, students invest their time, leaving many things behind to be able to reach their goals and become successful professionals and therefore make lots of money one day.
Others invest loads of money in beauty, so that they make look physically beautiful.

Others invest in their jobs; they don't have time for family, or vacations for even themselves, forgetting that the biggest investment is ones spiritual life.

Maybe you have wasted all of your energy with your physical and material life, and your spiritual life has been put aside, forgotten, as a secondary concern.
You have thought about everything, except in the biggest investment of your life, salvation, and eternal life.
You never have time or willingness to do something that will contribute to your spiritual life.

These are some things that show if you have not been investing in your spiritual life:
  • If you go to church every now and then, to "fulfill" an obligation of being a Christian
  • You never have time to read the Bible
  • You only pray when you go to church, you never worry about praying at home
  • You don't worry about obeying the word of God; you live a life of chaos and sin.
  • You are not interested in the things of God.
  • You do not fast for your spiritual life
  • You do not take the things of God seriously, you listen to the word in church, you accept it, but you never apply it to your life.
Invest in your eternal life, change your actions and in the end you will see that it was worth it.

" But God said to him, 'You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?' " Luke 12:20

The biggest investment you can make in your spiritual life is to repent of all your sins and look to Jesus to cleanse you of all your sins (with His blood)and thereafter follow Him and obey Him all the days of your life.

To put it another way, you have to believe in Jesus Christ as God's only Son, believe that only He can save you from your sins, repent, be baptised, and thereafter love God with all your heart, soul and mind and your neighbour as yourself.

That is true. How is it that we have time for so many things that are not crucial, but for God it is just few hours a week. Thank you for the message. Truly we must be like Mary and chose the best part, to be at Jesus feet.
