Father in Heaven, thank you so much for this time that we have to study together. Thank you Lord for preserving our life to this time. And as we're about to open the Bible, we just ask for blessing. We ask for your presence. We ask for your leading and guiding, and that as we open our word, the word that you would open our Hearts and minds to be receptive to it. And Lord, there is a very important message for each and every one of US this evening. Where you convict our Hearts, but more than that, your Holy Spirit work conversion upon each and every one of US. If we pray in Jesus' name, Amen. For those that are just coming, coming in, happy Sabbath again, police share of praise for this past week. God love to hear from all of you. Let's turn our Bibles to Matthew chapter 6, and we read that study the 1st 18 verses already. We are continuing in verse 19, Matthew chapter 6, starting in verse 19. The Bible says, Lay 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 That's Matthew 619 to 21. We're actually going to study all the way to the end of the chapter this evening, but it starts here in verse 19, about not laying up treasure on Earth, but rather laid up in Heaven. Why? Because Earth is temporary. Earth it says The Moth, the rust, and the thief will get to it eventually, the moth, all those clothing, all those things they can eat away, it will eat up. And guess what, whatever the must mouth cannot eat, the rust will get to all the metal stuff, right? The metal will get to it, the rust brother, and then whatever the moth and the rust cannot get to guess what the thief will get to it. Everything on this Earth that can be taken will be taken someday. And that's why is Jesus saying, look, don't lay up for yourself, treasure on the Earth. Where should we lay it up in Heaven? But then it says in verse $21.00, it makes this kind of like a conclusion for where your treasure is. There will your heart be also? So really what is the issue about why where we lay up treasure, it's a do with a heart. It's to do with the heart. The question is, Where is your heart this evening? Where has your Heart's been this past week? Let me show you what the Bible thinks about our heart or describes about our heart. Jeremiah Chapter 17 and verse 9. Let's turn our Bibles there. Jeremiah 17 and verse 9. The Bible says the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. Who can know it. You see the Bible says there that the heart is desperately wicked. And the reason why we lay up treasure on Earth is the condition of our Hearts, not this one, but this one. And so friends, as I ask you, Where is your heart the see evening when the Bible says that the Hot is desperately wicked is deceitful. Above all things, the natural heart of man will focus on things of the Earth. And so really want to ask you, Where is your heart this evening? Is your heart with God? Is it converted? Not just convicted but is it converted? And so really it is a matter of conversion because where the heart chooses to focus on that is where we will lay up treasure, whether it's on Earth or whether it's in Heaven, it is a condition of the heart. But Let's continue. Verse 22, Matthew chapter 6, verse 22, for those that are joining happy Sabbath. Don't forget to write a praise, but even the Mits of that, don't forget to listen to the message as well. Matthew, chapter 6, verse 22. I hope you just, you're turning along with me in your Bibles. Matthew chapter 6 verse 22. The Bible says the light of the body is the eye. If therefore, vine, I be single. The whole body shall be full of light. But if one eye be evil, the whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore, the light that is in the be darkness, how great is that darkness? So when it says in the beginning, lay your treasure, not on Earth, but in Heaven. Then it refers next what so that I because what is your eye looking at? If you are is beholding earthly things, you will lay up things on Earth. If your eye is looking at Heavenly things, then your treasures will be in Heaven. It's all of US. What this means when it says in verse $22.00, if your eye is single, you know 1st, I started by looking at the concordance. What is single mean? We have 2 pairs of eyes. What is a mean single? Well, I didn't really get much answer there. When it came back to the texture, and really there is the comparison in verse 23 but but if the line be one evil, so you have evil eyes or righteous, I do see that if your eye be single meaning if your eye is focused on the right thing if it is single to what the glory of God, If you are focused on the right thing in what you look at, then you will store up treasures in Heaven. But if your eye is evil, or your eyes be evil, Your whole body will be full of darkness. You will do the works of darkness. You will store up treasure where on Earth, friends, where you are putting your treasure is a matter of conversion. A matter of where your heart is, but really the problem is really what we choose to look at what we are looking at with our eyes. Let's go to Matthew chapter 5 and verse $29.00. Matthew chapter 5 Verse $29.00. Look at what Jesus gives as a solution, a recommendation to a solution. If we want to put our treasure in Heaven and not on Earth. Matthew chapter 5, Verse 29, The Bible says, and if I write, I offend the, pluck it out and cuss that from the fore, it is profitable for the that one of the members should perish. And not that the whole body should be cost into Hell. Friends, I want to give this little connection here this evening. If we are treasuring putting our treasures upon Earth, we are getting ready for the fires of Hell. Do you see that? If we are putting our treasure on Earth, it means that our eyes are be holding things that are of Earth, and a whole body is full of darkness because the heart is wicked. You see friends. So when it comes to the solution that was seen here, Jesus said way, pluck out your eye class that from you. Let's also go to Matthew 18, Matthew Chapter 18 and verse 9. We are looking at the I hear the I that it beholds of darkness. The whole body will be full of darkness. Jesus is giving the solution. Matthew Chapter 18 and verse 9. And if I offend the pluck it out and cost it from the it is better for the to enter into life with $1.00 eye rather than having 2 eyes to be cast into Hell fire its almost exact wording of what we just read in Matthew chapter 5 in verse 29, this is how important it is. Jesus telling US, Look, you can't keep focusing on the things of the World. What your eyes be holding this evening. That's the question that I have for you. What are you looking at? What are you beholding throughout the week? Because whatever you look at it is the Avenue to your soul, and it will eventually change who you are. Your body will other be full of light, or your body will either be full of darkness. What are you looking at? It seems to indicate that the, our eyes are more reality. Turn with Mina Bibles to problems $23.00 and verse $26.00. Proverbs Chapter 23 and verse 26. What about the eye? Probably 2326 my son, give me the wine Hearts and let the wine I observe my ways. Your eyes should do what, observe the ways of God. You should be focusing on Jesus, you should be watching him. And it seems to indicate here that the heart is connected with observing the ways of God with our what our eyes, if our heart is desperately wicked. Because the heart is looking at her 3 things and we're not putting it into heavenly things where your treasure is. There is your heart, the issue is our heart. But what influences our heart? It is our eyes. What we choose to be hold, and in probably $2326.00 it says, observe the ways of God. Give him your heart. But Let's continue. When to wrap this all up together at the very end, Matthew chapter 6 and verse 24. Matthew chapter 6 in verse 24. Let's continue. No man can serve 2 Masters for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other and then he makes it very clear. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon. What does that word, Mammon mean? It's riches. It's money. Yes. You cannot serve God and money at the same time. You cannot lay a treasure on Earth and lay up treasure in Heaven. At the same time. Do you understand that riches change people? And if you are focused on the Earth storing up drift, riches, and treasures on the Earth, then you are definitely not storing up treasures in Heaven. You cannot have both. You will either hate the one and love the other, or love one and despise the other. You can't have both and police. Make sure you are not deceived this evening about that. We are going to look at this. How do we know if we are storing up treasures on Earth as opposed to Heaven? How do we know if we are serving Mammon? How do we know if we have the Master that is of the Earth and not of Heaven? Friends? What should we behold if you want to be a full time Christian? I think the answer is obvious. If we are to have the Master that is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. What should we be? Hold 2nd Corinthians, chapter 3 in verse 18, the Bible says this, but we all with open face beholding as in a glass, the glory of the Lord changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord. We have to be whole Jesus, if we want to fix our eyes on heavenly things instead of Earthly, you understand that we got to be whole Jesus. If we want to store up treasure in Heaven, you can't have 2 Masters your other chasing after money. You're either storing up riches on the Earth, or you storing up treasures in Heaven. You cannot have both, but we got to be hold them, or else we can never be changed. And so how can we make sure that Jesus is a Master? How can we make sure that we are storing up treasure in Heaven and not on Earth? Let's keep going. Philippians, chapter 3, and verse 24 Libyans chapter 3. And verse 24 Libyans 320. The Bible says, For our conversation is in Heaven from whence also we look for the Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. Here's the 1st thing, friends. How do you know if you are storing up treasures in Heaven? Your conversation is more in Heaven. It's more about heavenly things and not earthly things. You're not always thinking about earthly things. Like Do we have to work? Of course we do. Do we have to earn money? Of course we do. But where is our focus in all of this? Why do you do what you do? What is your motivation? It's what drives you every morning to get up. Is it that Big House that you want to own one day or that nice New car that you want to purchase or that plan of just retiring early and just travel the World? Is that what motivates you to get up every day to work at your job? Or to earn money or to push you to study. What motivates you. Here in Philippians $320.00, it says that our conversation is where in Heaven no matter where we are no matter what we're doing, our conversation is in Heaven from whence we also look for the Savior, Lord Jesus Christ. But go back one verse just before it. It's in parenthesis, it started a verse before that even, but I'm just focusing on Philippians chapter 3, and verse 19. Look at the comparison in makes in Philippians chapter 3, verse 19, whose end is destruction, whose God is their, what their belly and whose glory is in their shame, who mind what earthly things. And it just so happens in Philippians $25.00. It says, Let this mind be in you, which was also aware in Christ Jesus. Do you have a earthly mind? Or do you have a heavenly mind? What are the motivations that drive you to do what you do? What pushes you to do what you do? And where is your conversation? That would conversation can also be interpreted as what your behavior, your Department of life is not just what you say, but even how you live it. That's why in Matthew 5, it says, if your eye be holds the darkness, your whole body will be what full of darkness. And so what are your actions like you can know if you are storing up heavenly treasure by looking at your life by looking at how use speak. Yes. How you talk? Does it give glory to God or only to yourself? But look, we need to have balance. We got to earn money to survive and live. But it shouldn't be to the point. That money becomes our God. That supplants the place of God Himself. How do we know if we've made money above God? Start by looking at your actions. Start by looking at your conversations. While you're always talking about where is your focus within your home, within your friends, amongst your colleagues or your students. You know what you're always talking about. You can notice this from these things, but Let's continue. We're going to get this answer at the very end there. Matthew, chapter 6, verse 25, Matthew, 625 therefore say I unto you, take no thought for your life. What you shall eat or what you show, drink, nor yet for your body. What you shall put on is not the life more than meat and the body more than Rayment. Stop thinking about what you can eat and what you going to drink and what you going to wear. Stop focusing on those things. Life is more than just what your clothes and the food on the table. It is. It's more than that. Verse 26. Behold the files of the Air for they so not neither do they reap not gather into bonds, yet your heavenly Father feed with them. Are you not much better than they are? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature and wide take ethe, what for arraignments consider the Ladies of the field, how they grow, they tall, not neither do they spin, and yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory probably one of the richest men that ever lived was not a raid like one of these. Wherefore, if God so close the grass of the field, which today is and Tomorrow is cause of the oven, shall he not much more close you? Oh Ye of little what? Oh Ye of little faith. Do you know why so many of US focus on earthly treasure and not heavenly treasure? It's because Jesus says you have little faith. You don't have enough faith. You think that God is not going to take care of you, so you've got to take care of yourself. You see the friends, how can we know that we are laying up treasure in Heaven and not on Earth? It's a faith issue. It's to do with our heart. It's got to do with our actions. It's got to do with true conversion. But how can we know we're truly converted? How can we know if we're laying up treasure in the right place? Therefore, verse 31, take no thought, saying What shall we eat or what shall we drink or where with all, shall we closed? For after all these things do the what the Gentiles seek for your heavenly Father know with that Ye have need of all these things look, it does not mean don't think about it at all. You don't think about your food is going to appear. That's not what is referring to is what's the context? Don't think about it until it becomes your God. Do you see the stop thinking about your food until that's all you think about, and that's all that consumes you because that's what the Gentiles do. That's all they think about their money, their food, their clothing shopping, going out to eat, having a good time, some good Entertainment, that all the Gentiles do. And maybe you don't sin. Maybe you're still going to church, but you might not be laying up treasure in Heaven. You might be laying treasure on Earth because you live in exactly like a Gentile throughout the other 6 days, Xcept. You go to church and look, Church is good. But we can be traditional Christians just go to Church week in and week out. That's what I do when I was young, I went because it was a good habit. But the other 6 days, the other 6 and a half days probably. I lived like a pagan, a lived like a Gentile, a person that didn't know God. They didn't seek God. They seek after a better life. Saving investment, retire early. Go on holiday, eat, drink, holidays, birthdays, Christmas, Easter, whatever. And they look forward to these days and they plan their holidays based upon long weekends, and that's all they're thinking about. Do you understand that? It's not that you shouldn't think about. What should I eat today? Make sure you healthy. Should I wear today? You don't just go, I'm going to use my closet blindly. No. But not to the point that it consumes you. And that's what we need to be careful of friends. That all we think about money and nothing else. God is not in our Hearts and enough thoughts and we're not beholding him. Friends. How busy Have you been during the MC o. the Lockdown? Maybe some of US who've been more busy. But then that business maybe is offset by not having to sit through traffic, get up 5 o'clock, or 6 o'clock in the morning. Be out of the House by 630. But have you drawn closer to God? Or even in this MC o. time, even though when you can go to the pub or the bars or go out, have a fun, Jolly time with your friends. Maybe a stilling of treasure on Earth. Hell. Because God has not been in your thoughts. Jesus says, don't take thought about what you going to do Tomorrow. You got to live in the present. Because then it says a Matthew 633, famous text, Seek Ye 1st, the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. And all these things shall be added. And so you take, therefore no thought for the moral for the moral shall take, fought for the things of itself sufficient unto the day is the evil there off. How do you know if you are laying up treasure on Earth or in Heaven? Has the pursuit of life. Even though it might not be sinful, you're still going to church on the Sabbath. Maybe and not. But maybe you are, but the other 6 days, all you're focused on is my life, my job, my money, my savings, my health, my exercice. Everything. But you're not seeking 1st, the Kingdom of God. Do you see that? It's possible to not sin in a sense. It's possible to be a good citizen of this Earth and not steal and not kill too many of US with too scared to kill. Would never do it. Even in our unconverted state. We wouldn't do it. But Jesus says That the problem with laying up treasure on Earth is because of our Hearts. Because what would be holding, and our eyes or be holding what New things, New gadgets, New toys, a better life, a better House, a better car, a better boyfriend, a better girlfriend. Better food, more organic, whatever it is. And we strive to be better and healthier. But in the process of that, even though we're not stealing, we're doing an honest day's work, we're paying for the food that we eat and the food that we put on our tables, we're paying for our loans for our houses and our cars. We're doing things honestly, but we forget God, in the midst of all of it. We don't have time for him. Even though we still go to church. The understand Jesus says Stop Thinking About Tomorrow. What you can eat, what you can to drink, what you can to wear, but seek 1st today. The Kingdom of God and His righteousness. And all these things will be added to you. How? Matthew chapter 6, verse 10, we looked at it last week. Matthew chapter 6, verse 10. The Bible says the Kingdom come, Thy will be done On Earth as it is in Heaven. I think if we prayed this part of that prayer every day, we would live very differently. I think if we prayed this part of the prayer every day, we would never skip our time with God in the morning. Because his will for US a sense of occasion, and we are sanctified by the truth 1st for US thus alone, eons for 3. John 1717, we would be spending time seeking God 1st every day. If we were truly asking for His will to be done. If we prayed this part of the prayer every day, we would pray every day. If we prayed this part of the prayer every day, we would only have one God in our lives. That would be our Savior and our Lord Jesus Christ. We would not make Mammon our God would not be storing up treasures on Earth would not be focused on things of the Earth. Our Hearts and our bodies would not be dark. But the light of God's word, Psalm $1191.00 of 5 would shine into our lights and we would live very differently. We would speak very differently. If you see that Jeremiah 2913. Jeremiah 2913. And you shall seek me and find me. When Ye shall search for Me with all your heart, if you really wanted to be righteous, if you really wanted to find the Kingdom of God, You can just go to seek as hard as you seek for earthly treasure. You will find Jesus, you will live a righteous life. Your conversation will be different. Your Department of life will be different. You will begin to store up, treasure in Heaven. The answer is simple friends. Many of US were to focus on worldly or earthly things. And maybe the m C O has forced some of US to slow down. Stop focusing so much on all these things. Maybe some of you, your, your hurtful finance. This is a time to claim that promise, friends, don't think about Tomorrow. Seek 1st, the Kingdom of God today. Yes. And maybe a sin they go home. How is studying my Bible and reading my Bible today? Going to help me for Tomorrow. All. There are a 1000 ways in which God can change our Hearts. Don't even get me started in giving you solutions. How God can change US. How he reigned Manna from Heaven. But how he might need to change your heart 1st. But friends, it's our eyes. It's our mind that needs converting today. That's what needs to change. Too many of US, we skip our devotions on our walk with God and our time with the Lord and it becomes non essential because we've been busy. And the reason is because our eyes are focused on the wrong things. We are laying up treasure on Earth and not in Heaven. Even though you might be a good moral citizen of the Earth. More reality on Earth, good ethics on Earth is not going to get you to Heaven. The righteousness of Christ alone will get you there. Friends and so I ask this question again, who is your God? How do you know if money is your God? Or if Jesus Christ is your God? We've already given some clues already. Are you seeking 1st the Kingdom of Heaven? But I want to show you a text in Exodus. Let's turn our Bibles to Exodus Chapter 7. The background of the story is simple. God is trying to call Moses to lead the children of Israel out. And he's speaking to him from the burning Bush and Moses is making all these excuses, all these excuse. And he's saying, God, I can't speak of Gyptian anymore. Have been gone 40 years. God says Ok, I've made your mouth, don't worry about it. All they won't listen to me what's what, what should I tell them? Who told me to go say I am that I am. But what is this? Don't believe. Ok. You know what's in it, what's in your head, a Rod, throw it down and become a snake and then you know, take out your hand, it becomes leprosy and then put it back in. It's clean again. God gives all the signs and at the end of it, Moses still declares God, please to somebody else. He doesn't say like that he says, send the man that you want to send. So we pick it up here in Exodus Chapter 7 and verse one. Exodus Chapter 7, verse one, who is your God? The Bible says this and the Lord sensible with US. See, I have made the a God to Pharaoh. And Aaron, the brother shall be what? The prophet, the shell speak all that I command the an errand I brother shall speak on for Pharaoh that he send the children of Israel out of his land. So God is saying Moses' under to make you like God, to your brother. He's going to be the prophet and he's going to be all the communication and everything. You know, the Rod, it was Alan that threw the Rod down that road eventually became Aaron's Rod. But God didn't want that. He wanted Moses to do everything the Aaron did. And more Moses do this, he would do it. But now it's Moses. Do this and Moses would speak speak to Aaron. Oh God told me that you got to do this. It was an unnecessary step. So he gives this illustration, he still chooses Moses. He was of the most men, most Meek on the Earth. He was a good man, he's an heavens a day. But it was an unnecessary step that Moses God needed to take with Moses. Ok, Moses was to Aaron like God. And Aaron would be the prophet. Now, who is your God? Your God tells you what to say. And you say that your God tells you what to do. And you do it. Who is your God? You do whatever they want you to Your boss. Tell you to come to work on Sabbath and you go, you've put that person above God. You listen to that person above God. He is your God. Your wife tells you to do this on the Sabbath and you do it. Your wife just became God to you because God says, don't do any work. And now she's telling you to do it. That is your God. Your lecturer, your school tells you that you got to come in and sit an exam this coming Sabbath and you go and guess what? Your school is, your God, your God is whoever you listen to above what God says. Now your wife tells you to go, the Troad throw the trash. I hope you go through the trash. A man. Yeah. She's not your God. She's your wife. You should do it quite. But whoever is your God is what you listen to above God. If you're saying Jesus is your God, the Father in Heaven is your God, then you should do everything that he tells you to do. You should say everything he tells you to say. He tells you to go here, you should go there. He tells you to do this, you should do that. But if someone else's word comes contrary to what God says, then, and you listen to that person, that person becomes your God. And many people are listening to the dictates of money. Mammon. Money says you got to do this, you Gotta wake up at this time, go into work and work this many hours and then you come back and then I'll pay you a good amount and you do it. And you tell Jesus, I'm sorry. I love you. I have no time for you, but you know my heart is with you throughout the day, but you understand, God, I'll be there at church for the Sabbath. I promise I'll pay my tithe, but you don't have time for him throughout the week. And Jesus says, stop seeking after all these things like the Gentiles to seek Ye 1st, the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Stop chasing after money. Stop making money. Tell you what you have to do. I have to live here. I have to be here. If not, I can't go to work. I can't earn money. I have to do this. If not, I'm not going to retire in time. I have to do this. If not, I can support my kids fees. I can support my lifestyle. And so money begins to dictate what you should do rather than Jesus and His word friends. What is the fruit of a person who is seeking 1st? The Kingdom of God. Matthew chapter 5 and verse 20. It's in the Beatitudes. It's in the Beatitudes. And the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew chapter 5, Verse 20 rather not Beatitudes, but the Sermon on the Mount. Matthew 524, I say unto you that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees. Ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Friends, if we want to enter into Heaven and we're seeking 1st, the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, we will not have the righteousness of the Pharaoh seas. And we studied this before. I'm sorry. I can't rehash that whole lesson of what it means to have the righteousness of the Farriss. But also one other thing. Matthew 516, Matthew 516, if your body is full of light rather than darkness, because your eyes are looking at light and not darkness. Then in Matthew 516 will be your lifestyle. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father, which is in Heaven guess what? The righteous life is bringing people to the foot of the Cross. Other people will see your good works and they will glorify God in Heaven. Friends. When is the last time you brought someone to Jesus? When the last time someone got baptized? Because of you. Have you ever been instrumental in one person's Salvation? It is not the work of the Minister. It is not the work of the Bible worker. It is the work of every Christian. If we are seeking 1st, the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, what we eat, what we drink, what we wear, what we drive, what we live in, whatever it is that has to do with earthly things, are secondary. What becomes 1st, the glory of God, and His righteousness. And then when people see you they will be converted to Jesus Christ, friends. Maybe some of you have been focusing on earthly things too much. Some of US will focus on earthly treasure too much. And you might be a good moral person, but it's never good enough. Our Righteousness is like filthy rags friends. We need to seek for the righteousness that only Jesus can offer. And if we are not seeking for it through out the week, our Sabbath becomes in vain. Why? Because we come to church with our earthly minds. We can't understand sometimes of spiritual things. And our conversations, even at church, become earthly about business, about money. Friends, there's nothing wrong to talk about your week, but our conversation must needs be in Heaven and it needs to be heavenly throughout the week as well. And so friends, as we've come to another Sabbath day, we've come to rest. Think about your life. Consider the path that your life is taking. Is it trending heavenward. Or is it going towards the Earth? You can't have both. You can't have Heaven and Earth at the same time. Love not the World, neither the things that are in the World. If any man love the World, the love of the Father is not in him. You can have both friends. If you've been neglecting your walk with Jesus, it's because you've been focused on Earth, the treasure. Seek 1st, the Kingdom of God. This evening, when you get off, don't just go God, I'm sorry, let me read your Bible. I'm going to now is not enough. You can ask God to change your heart for US. You've got to pray, a prayer of repentance. You could ask God to open your eyes to see the light and not the darkness. You could ask God to help you to change that heart. Because where your heart is, that's where your treasure will be. He is not just go Ok. I'm just going to read the Bible. No. You need to perform a operation on a heart. Create in me. A clean heart. Oh Lord. And renew a right spirit. Within me. Friends, that's what we've got to pray for 1st. And that's what we've got to pray for every day. Moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day. We're going to learn to walk with Jesus and allow him to transform our art is not just a one off thing. So what if you go back and read your Bible this evening, you've got to do it every day. Sanctification is a work of a lifetime. We've got to do it every day. Otherwise we'll go back to our old sins and our old life. So friends, please pray that prayer. God, give me a New heart, a New heart. Please put it within me this evening. That is my prayer for myself. For every one of you, God take my heart for I cannot give it. Keep it pure for me. For I cannot keep it pure for the saved me in spite of myself, my weak UN Christ like self may God help each and every one of US help US to experience true conversion this day. Let US pray Father in Heaven. Lord, we need Jesus without him, we can do nothing. Any step we try to take towards Heaven will be futile unless Jesus strengthens US unless he guides US. Unless he covers US with his robe of righteousness. So far this evening. Many of US, we've been negligent of spending time with you, and whatever excuses we may seemingly have from this MC, you're getting US depressed from US being so busy from work or studies, whatever reasons we might have. Lord, please sweep that aside and help US to see so clearly that that's not the real reason. The reason is, Lord, we don't love you enough. And Super Lord I asked for a New heart, a heart of flesh. Take up the heart of stone, Lord and I pray that you help US to delight in your word. The carnal mind cannot we despise your word, but Father, please. You go to work that operation upon our Hearts this evening. Help US to repent, help US to confess of our sins. And Lord, please Do the rest for US. Save US by your Grace Lord, And help US to be transformed into your image. Fully praying in Jesus' name. Amen.
