Luke 19 --Investments

As you read this you may or may not be convinced Jesus is the Son of God and Messiah. You might not think Jesus was the chosen One of God sent to show us the kingdom of God. If you are convinced of these things Luke 19 has a message for you, invest.

The most significant decision we will ever make is what we will do with Jesus. The basic question we must answer is, is Jesus a liar, a lunatic, or is he the Son of God? Once we answer the question the work is not done. If we choose Jesus as savior and leader we then must transform our lives. A sign of a transformed life is one that invests in the things of the Kingdom of God, for the sake of Christ.

What this means is we do not just sit back and revel in the glory of God through Jesus. Sure we should revel in the glory of God, yet it should move us to action. The action is found in what we do with the relationship we have. Do we invest what God has given us, or do we just sit back and savor? We are not to be quiet about our relationship with Jesus, we just do not always need words to make a noise.

Zacchaeus climbed a tree, the faithful servants invested, even the rocks would cry out. All invested in what God was doing right then and there. Can the same be said of us?
