SILVER AND GOLD
1Peter 1:18-19 “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”
The Scene: Gold bars–representation of the world’s wealth.
The world’s financial system measures wealth in silver and gold. Father God values us, His children, more than silver or gold. For we know the world’s wealth will perish, but those who belong to our God and King, Jesus Christ, will not perish, but will have eternal life forever in heaven with Him. Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
Revelation 18:11,17 “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes any more–cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble. v. 17 In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin! ‘Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off.’ ”
But the wealth of Christians will be stored in their heavenly homes awaiting their forever rewards, if tithes and offerings have been sent ahead. (See Malachi 3:10 )
