Only when we accept Jesus’ one sacrifice are, we absolutely free spiritually becoming the wealthiest people in the universe. Freedom is a big word throughout the world today. Many men have been proud of dying to protect freedom or their families are proud now that they are gone. Why do covet freedom so much? What is deep down in the human psyche that longs for this ideal? I pray that I will not offend you, but the only freedom worth dying for is what Jesus provided on the cross. All other freedom is vain and temporary compared to the riches found in Christ Jesus. We finally achieve total freedom when recognize we died to ourselves on that cross with Jesus. Absolute freedom from this worldly prison is to see that it no longer has any value nor effect on our soul. When we believe this principle, we are worthy vessels for the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit to lead us into a new way of thinking.
“Finding one that is flawless, he immediately sells everything and buys it. Or, God’s kingdom is like a jewel merchant on the hunt for excellent pearls.” -Matthew 13:45-46 MSG
Now I pray that you will recognize the value of this new freedom you have in your relationship with a risen Jesus Christ. I must laugh when I hear Christians say, “I have given my tithes and offerings, so now I am expecting God to bless me with earthly wealth.” If all we seek is earthy wealth, we have missed the boat and walk away sad like the rich young man in the gospels. Or what about the throngs going to revivals for physical healing but neglecting the most valuable gift: forgiveness and freedom resulting in a new life. Come on church wake up and seek those things above where your Lord and Savoir is seated in the heavenlies. Recognize that you are now free to not choose sin and you are born again to a new life in resurrection power. When you get this revelation, you will change you will love the Lord with all your heart and love others. We are eternally rich, but this is a wealth the world and many Christians will never recognize or value. Father I ask you to reveal the vast value of a new place in Christ Jesus righteousness. Drop the scales from our eyes so we can see! Now that you have mixed the mud of the cross on our eyes, let us go to the River of Life and wash, so we can see. We were once blind and now we see which all is completed by our Lord Jesus Christ whom we will praise from now on for eternity.
