The Dangers of Loving the World      Matthew 6.19-24

Sunday Teaching Ministry . 13th December 2020
This message poses the question: are we laying up treasure in heaven? Or are we laying up treasures on Earth, even without realising it? The Lord, in Matthew 6, exhorts us to have that single eye to our eternal inheritance.

Matt.6.19-24Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
