Healthy Demise: Where the wealth lies.
I imagine that you’re looking at the title and thinking: “How can the death of anything be healthy or bring a person wealth?” There are some things that we are to die to and or lay to rest. The most important thing is sin. Sin causes separation from the Father whom is the source of our wealth. When we choose God’s will and righteous living over sin, we are choosing an abundant life.
1 Peter 2:24 says, “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” Christ set the example for us to follow and also broke the rule sin had over our lives. We can overcome sin and choosing to opens the door to our wealthy places. Not only are we displaying growth, understanding of righteous living and that we are conquers; we are also making God proud. Also we are able to humble ourselves, confess our sins and repent. We do this because we want to continue to live a life that is acceptable before Him.
Can you recall the feeling of pleasing your parents, seeing their beaming faces due to your accomplishments and yourself feeling joy from the inside out; If not your parents, then someone special in your life? Choosing your life over sin and truly walking in that decision brings forth the same feeling when you realize the joy you are bring to your Heavenly Father! So my advice is to embrace the death of sin and get the wealth God has for you! That’s where fulfillment lies.....
