A. Where your treasure is?

"For where your treasure is,"

Treasure or "thesauros" in Greek language meaning: deposit or wealth.

ILLUSTRATION: I know a lot whose heart is in their career, job, ownership, properties or even in their pets well then sad to say that is where their heart is. When asked, what is my treasure, my answer is JESUS, why? Because there is my heart. This is very basic and yet very complicated. A lot of so-called CHRISTians nowadays left church for something else or for someone else. How sad? Because in their heart their treasure is not JESUS. It might be their career, and their job's schedule is in conflict with church, so guess what? what will they choose? Their job. An idol.

Isaiah 33:6 (Amplified Bible)

And there shall be stability in your times, an abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the reverent fear and worship of the Lord is your treasure and His.

Luke 12:34 (Amplified Bible)

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

2 Corinthians 4:18 (Amplified Bible)

Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.

Our treasure is and every believer's treasure must be the reverent fear and worship of the LORD - that's it, or in short JESUS CHRIST- the Pearl of Great Price is our Treasure here on earth and in the new heavens and new earth that is to come.

B. Your heart will be there as well

"there will your heart be also"

Heart or "kardia" in Greek language meaning: thoughts or feelings, the heart. That is a human being's center. The heart.

Romans 7:5-7 (Amplified Bible)

When we were living in the flesh (mere physical lives), the sinful passions that were awakened and aroused up by [what] the Law [makes sin] were constantly operating in our natural powers (in our bodily organs, in the sensitive appetites and wills of the flesh), so that we bore fruit for death.
