“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.”2 Corinthians 8:9
How can a follower of Christ become rich in this world of oppression, depression and expression?
The moment you are born again, you have Jesus in your life. When you have Him in your life, then you can get ready for His abundant supply to come your way! But don’t just look for the blessings like many Christians do!
First seek Jesus who is the source and when you ﬁnd Him, learn to rest in Him. Here in the rest that Jesus offers you will find the power of true wealth. (Deuteronomy 8:18) Jesus’ presence in your life brings good things. Because of God’s grace toward us, Jesus, though He was rich, was made poor at the cross so that “you through His poverty might become rich”.
Beloved, when you have Jesus in your life and when you know that He has paid the price for your abundance, you can boldly declare, “Jesus was made poor at the cross for my sake so that through His poverty, I am made rich in all things!”
Isn’t that amazing - You are rich in all things! Can you receive this in your heart? This is for every child of God! Look to Jesus, rest in Him and declare confidently that through Christ, you are wealthy in ALL things!
