The eternal view of the Christian life is not focused on we have, our bodies, our homes, our wealth, our earthly treasure in any form, but the eternal blessings which are ever present in the person of Christ and the fulfillment of covenantal redemption promises.
The blessedness of contentment is knowing all the gifts which in Christ are yours. Armed with this unbreakable truth temptations like the lusts of the flesh, the eyes and the pride of life (1 John 2:16) are to be set aside and faith in the promises of Christ make possible complete contentment in all circumstances.
Beginning at verse 19, Christ focuses upon the natural temptations which life presents. So we hope to answer the following questions: What is the focus of your heart? What do you treasure? Is your focus upon loving Christ and serving him your whole heart?
