“He Became Poor That You Might Become Rich”
You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. You know that Christ was rich, but for you He became poor so that by His becoming poor you might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9
Jesus Christ left ALL the SPLENDOR and GLORIES of Heaven to come to a DEPRAVED, UNGODLY, HEATHENISTIC world. A world that would reject Him as the Son of the Almighty God. A world that would eventually sentence Him, on trumped up charges, to the most WRETCHED kind of execution, ever carried out by mortal man. A world that STILL REJECTS Him, and persecutes His Children for their beliefs.
Jesus, who owned EVERYTHING, sacrificed it ALL, for the REDEMPTION of ALL mankind. When He came to earth to fulfill the PROMISE of His Heavenly Father. He wasn’t born to a wealthy family, but a poor family. When He became a man, He didn’t own a thing, but depended on the generosity of BELIEVERS for the support of His ministry. He gave up ALL He had so that mankind might be saved.
Not only did He, who was beyond being RICH, become POOR in the material aspect, but looking at things from a complete SPIRITUAL aspect, He, who knew NO sin, became SIN, by taking on the sins of ALL mankind, PAST, PRESENT, and FUTURE. He paid their debt that they could NOT pay. He who was RICH in EVERY WAY became POOR for the SALVATION of the world, so that they, who are POOR in EVERY WAY might become RICH.
You may NOT ever become RICH materially, while you are on this earth, but REMEMBER, this earth and EVERYTHING in it is TEMPORARY. But ETERNITY is FOREVER. Are you storing up treasures in Heaven? Are you RICH spiritually? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are POOR in EVERY ASPECT of your wretched, sinful life, and will spend ALL ETERNITY in Hell, the place of ETERNAL torment, torture, pain, agony, heartache and despair. However, if you TURN AWAY from your sins, and TURN to God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING, your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, and ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and come out of your POOR, WRETCHED, SPIRITUALLY BANKRUPT LIFE and into a RICH, GLORIFIED, SANCTIFIED, SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE, then you can receive the ETERNAL RICHES of Heaven. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
