Rich Christians

Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 8:1-15, 9:7-8,11-15 (day four)  “Yet for your sakes He became poor, so that by His poverty you might become rich” (vs 8:9)  “So that having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work” (vs 9:8)  We’re rich!  Certainly from the perspective of history.  All of us have material privileges which would have been the envy of kings in a former age.   From the perspective of eternity we are even wealthier!  We have an infinite Spirit.  We have a reliable Bible.  Christian friends, the power of prayer. . .we are rich!  Not so that we will be arrogant or self-indulgent.   God makes us rich so that we will share in every good work (abundantly share in it).  Some think that we should choose the projects in which we should be involved.  Paul disagrees.  We are to share in EVERY good work.  If God is involved we want to be too.  Just like rich folks!
