The song says, “I would rather have Jesus than silver or gold and anything this world has.” When you get to that stage in your life where nothing matters but God and His Son Jesus Christ, then you know without a doubt that God abides in you and you in Him. The world with all its lust and lure cannot captivate you because it’s useless and worthless when you realize that you can’t take it with you as 1 Timothy 6:7 tells us.
1 Timothy 6:9-11: When your main and only desire is to be rich then you will fall into temptation and a snare; for the love of money is the root of all evil and those who covet it have erred from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. However, as children of God the Lord advises us to flee from greed, lust of the flesh and the eyes and the pride of life and follow after righteousness, Godliness, faith, love, patience, and meekness. Why settle for the unsatisfying things of this world when you can have better in heaven. Fight the good fight of faith and lay claim to eternal life.
1 Timothy 6:6 tells us that Godliness with contentment is great gain. The Bible tells us in Matthew 6:33 to seek God first. 1 Timothy 6:11 tells us to follow after righteousness, Godliness, faith, and love, and not after the things of the world that leads to death. What profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? Or what will a man gain in exchange for his soul (Matthew 16:26). Then Hebrews 2:3 asks, “How shall you escape fire and brimstone (hell) if you neglect so great a salvation?
The world will pass away with its lust, but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever (1 John 2:17).
When you really know God, you will become an overcomer, and when you accept Jesus you become more than a conqueror.
