Jesus said in John 12:32 — “And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself…”
Jesus died a painful, cruel death on a cross, and then conquered death by rising up from the grave. The people who were living then saw God’s love and power. Today, Jesus draws people to Himself by us leveraging what we have to show the world that same love and power.
That is what we want as Christ followers. We want the Good News about Jesus to be shared so that the world can experience incredible change. But a lot of the time, it costs us something to leverage what we have in our possession in order to lift up the name of Jesus.
Luke 16:10-12 — “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?”
Use the time, energy, talents, and resources you have been given to help people get to heaven. When you do that, you will be making investments into the future, into heaven, into eternity. We can’t even wrap our minds around how long eternity is! Experience life to the fullest by leveraging what you have so that God will be glorified.
