“Christ’s love compels us,” says the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:14. God doesn’t need our possessions. “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” (Psalm 24:1). God wants our devotion. “Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength” (Deuteronomy 6:5). Everything in our lives should reflect our total dedication to God. God has shown us incredible mercy time and again, particularly in sending us Jesus as a Savior. Jesus redeems us from sin and makes us one with God again. We have eternal life through him. It is God’s Holy Spirit that helps us to see and believe in Jesus our Savior and to want to serve God in all we do, including with our possessions.
