TOPIC: GRACE FOR WEALTH
TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 8:9
Today, EVANG. DAVID OFURUM teaches…
The Bible affirms in our lead Scripture that we know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are not being cajoled or doubtful about His grace, rather, we are convinced beyond doubt about this grace. To know is to possess information; to understand; be aware; be conscious; be certain; be convinced; be experienced. So, to know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that makes rich and adds no sorrow, you must vigorously pursue and voraciously consume knowledge about this grace until this knowledge and grace become your personal experiencial possession. You must come to the point where the riches of Jesus’ grace are no longer merely the content of a preacher’s sermon but your adamant conviction, only then can you experience it for yourself.
Until you are convinced in your spirit beyond all reasonable, unreasonable, scientific and empirical doubt that Jesus hung on the cross poor so that you might not be poor, you cannot enjoy His grace for wealth. Notice our lead Scripture says “that ye through His poverty MIGHT become rich”. So it’s a probability, not a compulsory provision for you to be rich through the grace of Christ. It’s up to you to pursue, possess and experience the riches of His grace. I don’t know about you, but I refuse to allow Jesus’ death in poverty be in vain. His deliberate purpose for such death is for me to be rich, therefore I refuse to be poor. I cannot be poor because the riches of His grace abound unto me. Hallelujah! You can also make that your own confession and experience.
