Get Rich Quick!

Do you play the lotto? Good luck.  You have a better chance of getting hit by a plane falling out of the sky.  Or by lightning.

But did you know that the Bible says there is a sure-fire way for you to get rich?

You can become rich instantly by putting your faith in Jesus Christ. Second Corinthians 8:9 says, “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 you might become rich.”

Of course I should probably clarify.  The Bible doesn’t say you will become rich with the wealth of this world.  Instead it promises you will get the wealth of the next world.  Ephesians 1:3 says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”

Why pursue riches that are temporary? Why pursue the wealth of a world that is passing away?  Jesus said, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul?”  None of it leaves with you when you leave this life.  So why don’t you look for the things that are eternal?

First you must admit you are spiritually poor. “God, I have nothing to offer you to save me“.  Not only are you broke, but, the Bible says you owe God a debt for your sins.  Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and all fall short of God’s glory”.  That’s all of us.  That’s you too.  Our sins are too many and too much for us to ever be able to repay God.

But, because He loves the you, God sent His only Son Jesus Christ into this poor world to die for your sins. And now God commands everyone to believe in His Son Jesus Christ to be saved.  That is a command given to you too.  Confess you are a sinner and believe that Jesus died for your sins.  He became poor so you could become rich.  He took your sins so you could have His righteousness.  He will take your sins away and give you eternal life.  Get rich with true riches.  Believe in Jesus Christ.
