Forget Your Worldily Status
Hello it is Val. I am so glad to be here with you today. And today I want to talk about "forget your wordily status". Many people focus on their social, financial, economical, material and even positions and titles in the world. Well, we need to focus on our heavenly status as citizens of heaven. It is very important. For it is written "store your treasures in heaven where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not come and steal" (Matthew 6:9). For it is also written we are a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). The butterfly does not think or say " I remember my life in the cocoon". The butterfly does not focus on the cocoon says. "Wow, I wish I was back in that cocoon. No, we know that the heaven is higher than the earth. So people focus on their importance on what they have and what they do not have. Life is about sharing and loving, sharing, and caring. So if you see someone who is in need then you should help them. It is an opportunity to help them. It is also written Do not entangle yourselves in the affairs of this life who has enlisted you to be a solider...a soldier of the kingdom of heaven (2 Timothy 2:4). Remember angels are among us in the world also. This should make you feel wonderful and comforted and make things easier for you in this life. To enjoy who you really are and no matter what wordily possessions you have and do not have. Because the world likes to put those chains on you and we know better as citizens of heaven. So be encouraged
