I have nothing; I have everything

I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.—Martin Luther

Are you familiar with the terms P/L statement and balance sheet? These are accounting terms to define a business’ profit and loss and a listing of all assets, whether cash or receivables or equipment or real estate, balanced against all liabilities, such as debts or payables.

What does your personal balance sheet look like? What will it look like when you die? I don’t mean what your heirs will inherit. I mean what will you have when you stand before God? Your money and property on earth will belong to someone else. What will you be able to take with you? “Whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things” (Philippians 3:7,8).

Money, stuff, and real estate are just tools, means by which you can serve God here on earth. They all stay here and soon will be destroyed. What matters, what lasts, is your relationship with Jesus Christ. When he speaks the word, your body will leap from the ground and you will be restored. You will then come into your real inheritance.
