Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
Scripture says that YESHUA chose to become poor—leaving Heaven and everything that belonged to Him as GOD’S Son so that we might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9). We read in Ephesians chapter 1 about the riches of His grace, check it out!
We were chosen by GOD Himself; we belong to Him. He gives us a purpose for life, and we are, at the same time, eternally secure (as believers)! We have been given permanent citizenship in GOD’S Kingdom (Heaven), an inheritance that won’t perish (1 Peter 1:4).
Because of our redemption in YESHUA, His death on the stake, satisfying divine justice, our sin debt is marked “paid in full” in GOD’S eyes. And because of our salvation through MESSIAH, we enter into a personal relationship with our heavenly FATHER, and then we become His adopted children.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the richest of His grace.
Many of us don’t realize how rich we are. We think in earthy terms (like bank accounts or material possessions) instead of spiritual ones! Our real wealth is found in the spiritual blessings we have been given through MESSIAH YESHUA. We are rich in His grace!
