In Matthew 6:19-21 and 13:44, Our Saviour Jesus Christ compared Heaven with a treasure. "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” "The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” Heaven is a beautiful place which one couldn’t compare with any place on Earth. Lucifer and his brothers were driven away from there some thousands of years ago; yet, it still pains him he couldn’t go back there. That was where the Father created him to live. He wasn’t created to live on this Earth. This has been one of his pains all these years. This is the privilege the Father gave us His children. This is the place of our final rest. But how could we get there? Our way of life, the pattern of life we choose to live here on Earth must pave way for us to go there. We must wholeheartedly follow the heart of the Father in all things. Holiness is the key to Heaven.
The more we forsake the treasures of this Earth and purchase the treasures of Heaven, the better, easier, and smoother our journey would be. How could we purchase the treasures of Heaven? We purchase the treasures of Heaven through the life of holiness we live! Holiness is a way of life. Though we weren’t born into it, but as we follow the Law of the Father, we’re closer to our destination each day we live. As we choose to live a life of holiness, this also would make life easier for our children and their generation. Though we weren’t born into it, but if we’ve given our lives to Jesus Christ before we start producing children, then they would be born into holiness and their journey would be smoother than ours.
