George Costanzsa Plays Church!
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.” Matthew 7:21
The Treasure Principle: YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU, BUT… YOU CAN SEND IT ON AHEAD. Matthew 6:19-21
Vs. 19 THE DON’T – “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.”
Vs. 20 THE DO – “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal.”
Vs. 21 THE WHY – “for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
ACTS 4:32-37 – People Who Were Through PLAYING CHURCH!
32 And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them. 33 And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all. 34 For there was not a needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses would sell them and bring the proceeds of the sales 35 and lay them at the apostles’ feet, and they would be distributed to each as any had need.
Acts 4:36 Now Joseph, a Levite of Cyprian birth, who was also called Barnabas by the apostles (which translated means Son of Encouragement), 37 and who owned a tract of land, sold it and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
