Topic: THOUGH RICH; YET POOR 2
Text: Job 1:1-22KJV
1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
3 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.
8 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
We have only one life to live on earth and after that another life exist beyond the earth called life in eternity (forever). In view of these two kinds of life that is on earth and in eternity, we have four categories of people that exist among are Those are poor physically yet rich spiritually and those rich physically but poor spiritually
The other two categories are:
* Those who are rich (physically) on earth and rich (spiritually) in heaven. These category are worthy to be emulated, they are rich on earth and recognise and the fact that it is God who commit the riches into their hands for His kingdom purpose. God comes first in their lives and they treasure their personal relationship with God more than their earthly riches. Even if God takes the riches from them, they would maintain their faith in God. A biblical example was Job from our text above, He was rich in everything on earth and was still rich in God’s sight spiritually (verse 8 says And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?”
- Those who are poor (physically) on earth and poor (spiritually) in heaven. These are the worst category, they are poor all round. They are poor on earth yet live the kind of life not pleasing to God. They refuse and reject the salvation of God saying they own their lives. A lot of them cannot deny themselves of the pleasure of this world, so would rather satisfy their lustful desires in corruption, formication, adultery, gambling, prostitution, lies e.t.c. at the expense of their soul. On earth they are poor and even in heaven they have no record with God, when they die as such they would certainly spend eternity with the devil in hell.
Dearly beloved, whatever your state may be among these four categories their is hope for you just repent of your sins, accept Jesus Christ as your saviour and walk with God all along your journey on earth. God bless you.
* Father, let prosper both spiritually and physically in Jesus Name.
