God is all You Need.

God is all You Need.

As you continue to grow and evolve and as the holiday season is approaching it’s important that you understand what the text says about material things.

 In Luke 6:20 it says Then Jesus looked steadily at his disciples and said how happy are you who own nothing, for the kingdom of God is yours.

What is the kingdom of God? In Romans 14:17 it tells us that the kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink but of living a life of righteousness and peace and joy in the holy spirit.”

To those of you who want to inherit true joy and peace it does not come from material things but from within, from the Holy spirit who dwells on the inside of you. It does not come from material things or from what you eat, drink, where you live, what your drive or designer clothes. All of those things are external and may provide temporary happiness and could actually be a distraction if not conscious to what is really important in life.

When Jesus says “how happy are you who own nothing” he’s saying this because when you have nothing and are not attached but detached from all of these things from this world, all you have is the holy spirit, and the holy spirit is all you truly need. When you have nothing you’re not worried about the bills or walking around with anxiety. But you live life more freely like the birds knowing that God is the ultimate provider and not your bank account.

The world calls them poor but God calls them blessed.

Here are three tips to help you remain detached from material things:

  1. Remember God is all you need. You do not lack anything through Christ Jesus.
  2. Even when you do accumulate a lot of material things (car, shoes, clothes) develop the attitude that you have it but you don’t need it. It does not define who you are.
  3. Remember who you really are at your core. You are love. When you go into the next life God is not asking you how many toys you bought your child for Christmas or how big your house was or how many cars are in your drive way. He’s asking you how many souls did you save?
