Enrich Your Life Today

April 29th, 2007

“You will be enriched in every way…”

(2 Corinthians 9:11)

Someone has said, If your joy is waning, you’re not sharing your faith. In Philemon 6, Paul urges Philemon to live what he believes—“…and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective…” If Paul, the prisoner of the State, because of Christ, could speak of joy and rejoicing from a first-century prison cell, how is it that we, who are free and materially blessed, have trouble locating joy?

Three biblical directives to enrich your life:

1. Enrichment comes by being invested in other people’s lives (2 Corinthians 9:6-15; Philemon 6,7)

2. Enrichment comes to those who can see beyond themselves and live in grace (2 Corinthians 9:8,14).

3. Enrichment comes through the gift of God, through Christ, and your confessional living of this gospel of Christ (2 Corinthians 9:13-15).

Isn’t it time for you to experience the joy of Christ? “Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say rejoice” (Philippians 4:4).
