///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 282| October 8, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 John 2:15
The Christian is not of this world. When you believed the Lord, You became a child of God, a citizen of Heaven. Spiritually you were translated from the kingdom of darkness into the presence of God. Col 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. From the day you got born again, you ceased from being a native of this world.
You now have a new pursuit of life. The people of this world live for food, clothing, cars and all they can acquire down here but the Christian is different. Matt 6:31-32 "So don't worry about these things, saying, 'What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?' These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs”.
If your daily living is not about the purpose of God it needs a fix. (Luke 12:15 TLB)- "Beware! Don't always be wishing for what you don't have. For real life and real living are not related to how rich we are." The difference between the children of God and the people of the world is this: the children of God live for God and they get blessed in material things as by-product. We are not here to amass wealth; we are here to bless the world, money is just one of our tools. But the children of this world solely work to amass wealth in this life. If Christians will live this way, they will make a great deal of difference in politics, commerce and even in the academia. They will end the corruption that plagues most institution because money is not their motive for working.
Notice that the Bible never said the abundance of money is the root of all evil; it is the love of it! It is wrong to make money and material things your ambition for living as a child of God. It is lowest kind of life one can choose possibly. The Christian must have a lot of money but must not love and live because of it. Life is more than that. The reason you should want to live another day should be because of God not a materialistic ambition. Living for God is the best way to live, it is most fulfilling. This is not to say Christians should not be involved in commerce and other businesses, what we are saying is, you must do commerce because of God and not enrich yourself.
// 🗣SAY BY FAITH
I live to fulfill the plans and purposes of God for my Life. I don’t live for the temporal materials of this present world. My heart is not after wealth of this world although I am enormously blessed with them
