HOW GOD WORKS IN YOUR LIFE
"CONGRATULATIONS: YOU ARE RICH!"
February 12, 1995
INTRODUCTION: I want to take this opportunity this morning to
say to you, "Congratulations: You are Rich!" Since you have
sus Christ in your life, the Bible tells you that you have every
itual blessing from God. You are not left out on any one of
Many of you dream of someone coming to your door and tell-
ing you that you have inherited or won $10 million. If this
happened, you would be ecstatic and tell everyone that you met
about it. Do you realize that you can be very rich in this
world and be poor spiritually? It would be better to be rich
spiritually and poor in this world. You need to tell everyone
you see how rich you are spiritually. Spiritual blessings last
forever. Riches of this world are only temporary.
We have been learning about how rich we are in Christ. I have
taught you that you are living right now in the heavenly
places, even though you are physically here. You are chosen by
God, adopted into His family, and fully accepted by Him. You
have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus and have received total
forgiveness of your sins: past, present, and future. Friends,
if you have Jesus, you have all of these blessings. Congratula-
tions: You are Rich!
There are three unique characteristics of these blessings and
the ones I am going to share with you today:
(1) Planned by the Father.
(2) Purchased by the Son.
(3) Preserved by the Spirit.
