Where Is Your Security?

We secure online accounts with passwords and many of us have encrypted workplace identification badges. We purchase expensive security systems to protect our earthly possessions, but are extreme measures taken to secure the salvation of our soul?

“If you want to be perfect go sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven. Then come, follow Me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad because he had great wealth. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I tell you; it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of Heaven. Again, I tell you it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle that for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.'” (Matthew 19:21-24)

Remember, lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth where moth and rust corrupt them and where thieves break through and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. (Matthew 6:19-24)

FINAL THOUGHT

It is okay to have earthly possessions and security systems as long as these things do not supersede our security in God. What about us? Is our soul security in Jesus strong enough that we cannot bear to be apart from Him nor can demonic forces steal our love and faith in Him?

  1. Tangie, this is beautiful. I have found NO security in anything but Christ. It took a lifetime of loosing things that don’t matter to know HE is all that matters and only love remains. I appreciate you so much. Prayers and hugs dear friend. 💛🤗🙏🏻

  2. A well-written and very enlightening post, Tangie. I got very hurt by my church (not something I speak of these days), but it turned me against the church and my religion. Reading your post reminded me of the things I did like about my religion and it’s sparked my curiosity again. Thanks so much. Love Ellie xx ❤🌞💚

    1. Ellie, I am thankful you were sparked. Please remember Matthew 7:15, some are wearing sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Do not take the bait from ravenous wolves. They are doing their father of lies business, and we must be about our Father God’s business. We are the church, and our faith and worship should be to God, not people. Read Hebrews 10:24-25. I was hurt several times by “Christians”, but I knew they would have to answer to God on the Judgment Day because they have yet come to speak to me. My cell phone was off, and voicemail recorded a conversation of two “Christians” talking negatively about me for the spiritually work I was doing. Today, God, my husband and I are the only three people who heard their recording. I did not allow people to separate me from the love of God. I will definitely be praying for you and remain safe.

      1. Thank you so much, Tangie. I really do appreciate your kind words and thoughts. Thank you, too, for sharing the reassuring reply to my comment above. I’m very glad for you that you have God and your husband as a comfort to you. When I first went to church, having then only recently become a Christian, I was welcomed, to begin with. However, once I became more disabled and unable to walk, I spent years there sitting alone in my wheelchair with rarely anyone coming to sit with me. And after the service, when we had coffee, people would talk over my head which was so hurtful. I felt so alone in that church. Perhaps, when I get my confidence back, I will try to find an alternative church, although there are hardly any close enough to me for me to be able to travel in my wheelchair. My sister and her family in Australia are very keen Christians and go to a wonderful church regularly. Sometimes, I watch their services online although it’s not live but recorded. I guess this is better than nothing at all. Sorry for such a long response – I really wanted to tell you the full story and the truth of it. Take care, Tangie and be safe. Xx 💝

      2. Wow. That is horrible and “converted” Christians would not do such things. It is no wonder why some people are turned off from God, worship service and following Jesus. It is so sad and God is not going to be pleased on the Judgment Day. Please do not apologize for sharing your stories. We are here to support one another despite the length of it. Please take care and remain safe.

      3. Thank you so much for being so understanding, Tangie. You are right – I think people in the blogging world are there to support others as much as they are to publish posts. I can see you put your heart into your posts, as I do. Your words mean a lot to me. Xx 🌞
