The Journey with Ron Moore

Rich with Spiritual Blessings | 2 Corinthians 8:9

2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God! The Word—God the Son—is eternal. There was never a time when He did not exist and there will never be a time when He does not exist. God the Son is omnipotent. He is limitless in power. God the Son is omniscient. He knows everything there is to know about everything there is to know. God the Son is omnipresent. He is everywhere at the same time in His full being. In one word…God the Son is…rich!

Yet for our sakes, the eternal Word took on flesh. The Dweller of Heaven moved into our neighborhood. The omnipresent God confined Himself to a human body. The all-powerful God submitted Himself to die on the cross. Jesus came to give His life as a ransom for our sin. And it was through that poverty of His submission that we have become rich.

Now, in Christ, we are rich with spiritual blessings. We have been redeemed. We stand justified—declared “Not Guilty!” We have been adopted as God’s children. The Holy Spirit lives in us. We are free from condemnation. We can never be separated from God. We have direct access to the throne of grace. We are God’s workmanship. We know that God is working through all the circumstances of our lives. We are confident that God will complete the good work He has started in us. In one word…we, the sons and daughters of God, are…rich!

Lord Jesus, thank You for becoming poor…all the way to the cross…so that we could have all the spiritual blessings of eternity! We want to thank You with our lives.
