RICHES AND PROSPERITY
(Believe In The Super Abundance Of Jesus Christ)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
2 Corinthians 8:9 GNB “You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; rich as he was, he made himself poor for your sake, in order to make you rich by means of his poverty.”
◀ LET’S TALK
When you study the entire eighth chapter of 2 Corinthians in context, you’d understand that the Apostle Paul was talking about financial and material prosperity. For our sake, the Lord Jesus Christ laid down His reputation, His riches, His wealth; He laid down everything and identified Himself with us, and took our place. He became us on the Cross. Everything He did was for your sake. He wasn’t poor, but He became poor for your sake.
In the same way, you weren’t rich, but now through Him, you’ve been made rich, just as in Him you’ve been made righteous. Until you understand this revelation, you’ll never enter into your wealthy place in God. Your trust shouldn’t be in your family or social background, education, government, society or in the business that you do. Your trust shouldn’t be in any bank; rather it should be in the Word; in whom and what Christ has made you. He’s fulfilled His part.
He said, “…Behold, here I am, coming to do Your will, O God—[to fulfill] what is written of Me in the volume of the Book” (Hebrews 10:7 AMPC). He already became poor so that you, through His poverty, might become rich. Now, you’re to step into what He’s done for you and made you. Believe in what He’s done for you, and take advantage of it.

Deuteronomy 8:18; Isaiah 48:17; 3 John 1:2
Dear Father, I’m forever grateful for my glorious inheritance in Christ! As an heir of prosperity, I live to bless others and lift them out of the thraldom of lack through the power of your Spirit that’s at work in me. I walk in super-abundance, and experience undeniable success in all that I do, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
