《Today’s spiritual meditation》: : “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” (2Co 8:9)
Meditation one: Do you know that you are rich in this world? Being rich before God is different from being rich before people. When you understand the amazing grace of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross, you will be grateful to Him. It is hard for you to imagine that God’s love can come to a low estate person like me. For this reason, you will not easily spend your limited life time on things eventually bring to nothing.
Meditation two: How can the richness of the Lord Jesus become our richness? He became flesh and dwelt in this world, emptied Himself, took the form of a servant, followed God’s will, and died on the cross. We become children of God by faith in Him. In God’s house, the abundance of everything God our Father has is ours. (Luk 15:31)
Prayer: Dear Lord, I praise You. Through Your poverty, I become rich. Please help me to put down myself and imitate the poverty of Your life. Through my life, I may bring the spiritual richness to others. Through me, may people have the life of Christ, and have it to the abundantly full. I pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen!
