2 Corinthians 8 vs
9》”For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”~《 New King James Version, NKJV》
RICH greetings to you, Cherished one. After getting acquainted with the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, you must know and ENJOY the dimension of the graces He carries. We are to know the grace that unveils his poverty and riches and how through His poverty we became rich. Our focal text unveils that Jesus was rich but became poor. Philippians 2:6-8 explains how; _” who, existing in the form of God, didn’t consider equality with God a thing to be grasped; but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to the point of death, yes, the death of the cross.”_ Hallelujah!
Note His poverty is not necessarily referring to material or financial poverty. It refers to Him taking on a garment of humanity, as a servant to suffer through obedience. Per the assignment laid on Him by the Father, He came to live under the umbrella of humanity where man could insult him, mock him, betray him, speak all manner of evil against him and even kill him as a man. *And the significance of His poverty was to make you rich. Thus, to make you abound in His righteousness and enjoy His life to the fullest (John 10:10).*
He paid all your spiritual debts for you. He delivered you from the shackles of devil, sin, poverty and death. He has made you a king and priest unto God. *You now reign and have access to the fullness of His grace, mercy, love, truth and the all in all in Christ.* This is how He made you rich. His richness in you started in your recreated human spirit, soul and body. And this behoves on you to enjoy all forms of godly riches. Therefore, refuse to be robbed by the devil, sin, death and poverty. For His poverty has made you rich. Choose to enjoy His riches in all areas of your life. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
_Father of all true riches, I thank You for Your unfeigned love towards me that has made me rich Through the poverty of Your Son, I am rich and abound in all things. I refuse to walk in anything contrary to Your true riches in Jesus Blessed Name. Amen !_
*◇ Enjoy A Rich Saturday◇*
_Pray that God’s Spirit would empower you to enjoy all the riches of Christ in all areas of your life._
