October 28

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.”  2 Corinthians 8:9 (NIV)

This tells us why Jesus came and gave His life for us. What was His purpose? It was that we might become rich. I believe it is beneficial for us to examine our experience in the light of this stated divine purpose. Can we really say that we have become rich by believing in Jesus? Of course this is not talking about being rich financially. It does not promise a huge bank account or large material possessions. We need to recognize the great spiritual wealth that has come to us – spiritual blessings, the peace and joy God gives, and the assurance of an eternity with Him.
