“How Much Is Enough?”

Posted by on May 5, 2015 in Words From Our Pastor | 0 comments

We’ve all heard, maybe even said:  If only I had- “A New Phone-Faster Computer-Newer Car-Bigger House-A Million Dollars-etc.,” BUT THEN WHAT?

 

Searching and longing for STUFF will never satisfy!  Something new, better, bigger, will always come along and capture one’s appetite!

 

No matter our earthly status or wealth-[if exalted or unknown; having abundance or facing lack]—the fact is: It is the “Blessing of The Lord that makes us Rich.”  Earthly position, status, possessions are only temporary and easily come and go!  In Jesus, we are privileged to serve and proclaim the Power and Blessings of God’s Eternal Kingdom!

 

Realize Today:

1) In Christ Jesus are “hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” (Col 2:3)

2) In Jesus, as Peter declares: “you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD,

A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may

proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His

marvelous light; for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE

OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY.”

3) Because of Jesus’ Redemption, “He has made us to be a “kingdom and priests to our

God; and we will reign upon the earth.” (Rev. 5:10)

4) No matter what may come in this life, no one and nothing “shall separate us from the

love of Christ.”  …But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who

loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,

nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any

other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ

Jesus our Lord.  (Rom. 8:35, 37-39)

5) Our Lord God is “Jehovah Jireh.”  As we obediently obey and serve Him, He will “supply

all our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!” (Phil. 4:19)
