Running To Win

Getting Eternity Right, Part 2 of 2 (You Can't Redo Life)

September 2, 2021

The parables of Jesus cut to the deepest level of human motivation. In the story of the rich fool, greed was one issue—covetousness was another. None of us is free from the grip of wanting more. This sin keeps us from seeing what’s truly important: where we spend eternity.

Are you looking forward to the new heavens and earth? Our earthly possessions pale in comparison to that perfectly recreated world. It really is true: you can’t take it with you. So why are we so consumed with possessions and wealth? Jesus told a story about a man of great riches who lost it all—even his life. His passion for wealth proved meaningless. Will the priorities that absorb your life last into eternity?

In a shaky market, people wonder where to invest their money. Jesus taught a lesson on ultimate investments. He counsels believers to invest in God’s kingdom, because only in eternity will the true interest rate be on display.

A wealthy man decided to fire a manager. So the manager cut some deals with the master’s debtors to gain favor—to have options once his job ended. Jesus made this story into a parable about investments. But why did Christ commend a man who acted improperly?

In Luke 14, Jesus told a story of a lavish banquet. The invited guests all had other things to do, so the man giving the banquet brought in the poor and the crippled—those who would never expect such a gift. This parable shows us how to approach people with the gift of the gospel.

Jesus told a parable about a man hosting a banquet. When the invited guests gave excuses and refused to attend, the host invited anyone he could find to sit at his table. God seeks the lost just like this man sought people to feed. We too should reach people who need the gospel.

A master gave three servants money to invest. Jesus said that two of them made substantial returns and were rewarded. The third hid his money in a piece of cloth and felt the wrath of his master. This parable compares money with the way we spread the gospel. Will we be faithful with the good news?

How we handle the small tasks of today is vitally important. It affects whether we’re given a larger task to perform—and enjoy the rewards that go with it. In Luke 19, Jesus taught about faithfulness and the perils of unfaithfulness.

Jesus taught using parables, or stories. He spoke of a strong man who can’t be defeated, except by a stronger man. In Luke chapter 11, we learn that we can’t overcome evil alone, for we can only defeat Satan in the name and power of Jesus.

Few people these days take seriously the idea of evil spirits inhabiting people. But demons are very real. Jesus drove demons out of many, setting them free from destruction and bondage. There is a spirit realm, filled with conflict between the powers of darkness and the angelic powers who serve God.
August 20, 2021
We don’t always understand the reasons, but God chooses to give some of His children more than others—more abilities, more money, and better health. When we realize that the Giver is the one who distributes the gifts, and not the receiver, we’ve come a long way in understanding how God rewards his people.
