Our Spiritual Bank Account and Spiritual Wealth!

Lorna Nichols - Thursday, February 09, 2012

The major concern on most people’s minds today is the economy and its negative impact on their lives. Many are worried about their financial situation and are haunted by questions like: Can I pay the mortgage? Will I be able to send my kids to college? How can I make ends meet?  When your problems and worries begin to get you down, hit the restart button and refocus. Remind yourself of the great spiritual wealth you have in Christ. Apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 1:3, “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.” Paul is telling us that Jesus has already made provisions for our every need and He has left us with a very large Spiritual Bank Account. The problem is that many Christians don’t know or understand how spiritually wealthy they are.

Suppose you had a rich relative who left his fortune to you in a bank account that you knew nothing about. What good is this inheritance if you don’t claim it? We have a rich relative. His name is Jesus Christ. Through Jesus, we have inherited a spiritual bank account that is loaded with spiritual blessings.  We as Christians need to be aware of our spiritual blessings, claim them, and live in the spiritual wealth that is ours. After all, what good are spiritual blessings if we don’t know what they are?

Let’s take a look at the Spiritual Blessings Paul says are in our Spiritual Bank Account. If you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, your Spiritual Bank Account is full of the following Spiritual Blessings:  You have union with Christ. You have the love of Christ. You have been adopted into God’s family. You are free from the penalty of sin. Your freedom has been purchased by Christ. You have been forgiven. You have access to the wisdom of God. You have inherited eternal life. You have the privilege of praising and glorifying Gods. You have the Holy Spirit living inside you leading you to righteousness.  You have God’s grace and ever-loving mercy. You have the privilege of being God’s masterpiece. You have the peace of Christ. You are a citizen of God’s Kingdom. God no longer remembers your past wrongs. You can enter into God’s presence anytime and anyplace. You are a friend of God and so much more.

 So, the next time you find yourself fretting over your financial situation, remind yourself of the great spiritual wealth you have in Christ Jesus. Recount your spiritual blessings, claim them, and live in the spiritual wealth that belongs to you through Jesus Christ.

Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children
of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.

Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.

Success is that old ABC - ability, breaks, and courage.

In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.

After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each
time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment.

Is there an easy method you can remove me from
that service? Kudos!

Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence
will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.

Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health.
Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle
process all begins.

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Atletico Madrid man Radamel Falcao ensured there were wins for the top two in La Liga
indoor soccer shoes
Top two Barcelona and Atletico Madrid both won on Sunday with their star men in remarkable goalscoring form.
The brilliant Argentina international equalled that feat early on with a fine solo effort before latching onto an Andres Iniesta back-heel nine minutes later to break the record.
Obafemi Martins gave Levante the lead just before the interval and further goals from David Navarro, Ruben Garcia and Vicente Iborra left the Islanders four down by the hour mark. Mallorca have now gone 12 games without a win.
The win sees Diego Simeone's side move five points clear of Real Madrid and was an emphatic response to last weekend's defeat to their city rivals.

Should the commenters of this blog just want to receive backlinks
then they really should at the very least have the
integrity to try and post a thoughtful and readable comment.
All comment spam does is potentially negatively impact
your backlinking efforts and creates worthless backlinks.

The best way to behave is to befriend other bloggers who have blogs of a similar niche and hopefully generate actual targeted traffic by posting a related reply.

I hope future commenters might give this some thought prior to commenting below me,
Do not hold your breath.

On so many levels, I am more more offended by the so called generic commenter” than I am by the less skillful spammer.
Why? you might ask, Because at least the obvious spammer is more open and honest
about their spamming! We can see who they are.

The generic spammer is a cheat and a charlatan You can probably tell that I
have strong feelings toward this group of charlatans
