WEDNESDAY JANUARY 22, 2020
TOPIC: MADE RICH BY GOD
TEXT:1 CORINTHIANS 1:1-9
KEY VERSE: “That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge” (1 CORINTHIANS 1:5).
The great American evangelist, D. L. Moody, whose outreaches brought thousands of souls to the saving knowledge of the Lord, was said to be a poor and illiterate cobbler. But it is a marvel to see what great riches of divine grace and gifts he displayed in his lifetime.
The same can be said of Smith Wigglesworth who was also an illiterate plumber but got transformed and enriched by faith. The list is endless of ordinary people not reckoned with by the society, but whose lives impacted and marvelled the world because of the great riches of grace they displayed. Christ truly enriches lives. No one comes to Him and remains the same.
As Apostle Paul looked at the marvellous transformation in the lives of the Corinthian believers and the great riches that the grace of Christ had bestowed on them, he could not help but give thanks to God. Above that, was the power and ability they had to remain blameless in their very corrupt environment.
There is usually a wonderful transformation when a person encounters Christ. This is something that mere religion cannot accomplish. The change you experience is not limited to your moral life, behavior and character; you also become endowed with the ability to receive and understand deep revelation and knowledge of God.
When you begin to focus on those things that are yours in Christ and all that the grace of God can accomplish in your life, you will see reasons to be thankful and praise Him all the time. Do not think yourself poor and unfortunate any longer; start to praise God for who you are in Him. Your life is a bundle of riches through Christ.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You are a bundle of riches in Christ.
