Greater Riches

Hebrews speaks of Moses...
Heb 11:25 ...choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, 26 esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.

Moses forsook the passing pleasures of this word for the GREATER RICHES in Christ!
Much attention is given in the church of all the things we must forsake, but most christians live without knowing the "greater riches" "Just grit your teeth until the Lord returns... then I won't sin anymore." ... is much of the thinking. We're not made to just take up our cross in self denial, but to exchange pleasure for pleasure. For greater pleasure of being in love covenant with God.. of having all your needs met in a person, Christ. The greater pleasure of communion with God. The pleasure of a pure conscience! The pleasure of His love moving through You. Oh having God live strong inside You! Of living with an eternal understanding! ...of having a word change your person!

Don't live in the desert! We were called into the promised land of His fellowship!

God lead us into the greater riches of fellowship with You. Deepen our hunger for You.. Let us live to partake of YOUR pleasures! Amen
