As Christians, we freely choose to live for Christ and receive the gift of salvation. The reward of eternal life will equally be the same given to all believers (Matt. 20:1-16).
All believers have a glorious inheritance in Christ, but some will also receive heavenly treasures. Our inheritance comes to us through grace alone, while heavenly treasures can be worked for and accumulated (Matt. 25:14-30). Therefore we should be reminded that our actions have eternal consequences, and as we devote our lives to Christ, we are laying up heavenly treasures (Matt. 6:19). Our immediate fleshly needs shouldn’t outweigh the consequences of eternity.
God desires for all believers not only to receive the gift of salvation but understand that there is a reward for those who diligently seek Him (Heb. 11:6). As we serve God, we should not seek the treasures to find favour with the world. The Bible teaches us that wherever our treasure is, our heart will also be (Matt. 6:21). If what is most important to us are the things of this earth, we move further away from walking in divine purpose.
God’s kingdom lacks nothing, and before we are chasing the treasures of the earth, we should work to lay up treasures in heaven. God is the rewarder, and He will reward each believer according to his work (1 Cor. 3:8).
