Word for Today: Christians should have contentment.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality
Improving our Spiritual Understanding
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content” (1Timothy 6-8).
There is wisdom in being contented with whatever state we find ourselves. I am often surprised that many Christians do not enjoy contentment. Truly, we brought nothing to this world and we shall depart this world with nothing. What ever we have , name them, whether they be qualifications, titles, positions, knowledge, money or wealth, give God glory. Without the grace of God ( Jesus), we are nothing. There is no reason for pride.
If you are in good standing with God in Christ Jesus, you have no choice but to share in the divine abundance of the Jehovah El-Shaddai.
God’s wish for His children is to enjoy all round prosperity: material prosperity, mental prosperity and spiritual prosperity.
Indeed the whole earth and its fullness belongs to the LORD (Psalm 24:1). Both silver and gold belong to Him ( Haggai 2:8)
The Word says: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (3John 2).
The Word says:
“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant” ( Psalm 35:27).
In Christ, God expects us to be content. The grace of prosperity of prosperity comes from God alone.
Remain connected to your SOURCE.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, please grant us the grace of contentment no matter our situation in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
