God’s Coin

28 Aug

God’s Coin…

Jesus asked those who were testing him about paying taxes, “Whose image is on this coin?” They answered, “Caesar’s.” To which He responded, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesars, and render to God the things that are God’s.” In other words, if the coin bears the image of Caesar, then it belongs to Caesar and must be given to him.

But Genesis 1:27 says that man bears the image of God. Thus, as a coin is to Caesar – so you are to God. If you bear God’s image, then you rightfully belong to Him, and if you belong to Him, you must render, or give yourself to Him.

It’s the only natural and proper thing to do – since we already belong to Him. And beyond that, it reveals that if you don’t’ give yourself totally and wholly for God, then your life is lived in debt. In fact, your life becomes a stolen property or an illegal substance.

That’s why when you do your own thing with your life, it never works out. Something is always wrong. So render unto God today that thing that is God’s – namely you!

Let your heart therefore be loyal to the Lord our God, to walk in His statutes and keep His commandments, as at this day. 1 Kings 8:61

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
