Saved by Grace

Hebrews 13:5
Let your life be free from love of money but be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never forsake you or abandon you.”

Are you consumed with striving to make more money and gain more material things…or are you content with what you have? There is no harm in wanting to provide more for your family…but where is your heart in the matter? Is your heart consumed with striving for more money…or striving to love more and better? The fickle economy and death itself are good reminders that the stuff of this world will not last. But the risen Christ said in the last line of the gospel of Matthew: “I am with you always, until the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). God is with you now…in this moment…drawing you forward to a greater love and fullness of being. Jesus said, “I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Jesus meant for you to have an abundant life now. This abundance or wholeness in this present moment does not depend on money…but on Unconditional Love. Jesus modeled for us the way to have life to the full…and as Hebrews 13:8 states: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Seems like the perfect model to follow.
