“The world’s most expensive car” was another headline in the news today.
It does not matter how expensive or least expensive any car is on this earth because ALL will turn to RUST and fade away in due time!
Even human beings fade away because we are not on this earth forever (John 3:16-18). “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in the which he will [JUDGE THE WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS BY THAT MAN WHOM HE HATH ORDAINED]; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).
JESUS CHRIST, the only begotten Son of God 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” (Matthew 6:19-21).
The Apostle Paul said: “IF ye then be risen with Christ, [SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE], where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4).
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18).
