What does it mean when Jesus says, “Lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven”? He seems to be saying that it is possible to have more rather than less in heaven. Pastor Colin explains that what we do here makes a difference to what we have in heaven.
Scripture: Matthew 5:10-12
10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
