|I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Christ Jesus; That in everything ye are enriched by Him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge. Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you;
Sot that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall also confirm you to the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
One or two things stand out to me in this section that I feel should be shared at this time. 1/ It is the grace of God which is given us by Jesus.
But that grace has been given for such a special purpose! and the purpose is our number 2/ in V5; That in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge.
Fantastic qualities to look at in the Christian life! but the words that stand out above the others are (also V5) That in everything ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge. Just look at that one word; ENRICHED!
And being enriched by Christ! what more can we ask? How grateful are we?
And what are we doing with all our enrichment? Do we know we have it by God's grace? Are we always ready to share it with others?
Do we ever share it wrongly in an attitude of fierce pride?
A deeper look at this tells me that I've been enriched in order to also enrich others! Not to bury it all inside of me in an attitude of complacency. Not merely as Secret Joys?
One thing we can kinow about Father God is He doesn't see that we are enriched emptily as a temporary blessing that eventually fades away.
The more we share it with those who lack enrichment in their own lives the more the body of Christ will grow and develop all it needs in the coming days.
What are we meant to be enriched with? ( In all utterance, and in all knowledge.) it's vital then to see we are enriched in God's holiness by gifts.
So how precious is that? To me it represents a vast treasurehouse that has to be gone through in an awed manner bit by bit, piece by piece, every jot and every tittle! What we utter to others within the body is meant to enrich them. What knowledge we are enriched with, is then to be presented to others that they too might be enriched by it. What would that mean then?
There would be no member of Christ's body lacking in enrichment we would all be rich in the glory that is our God! Pocket power? or Spirit power.
Which takes the first place in life? Time will tell, but in the meanwhile others will see now, whilst on earth, because they will know when they are being enriched by another human being.
Yes! sadly we are still human, but we dont have to stay poor in our inmost beings, we can enrich one another by what is shared with us from heavenly closets. Whether we like it or not we are measured spiritually , we are being weighed daily by our listeners. That should make us careful and keep us on our toes with the help of the Holy Spirit of God. Father bless and enrich us all with incredible truths. Amen. Junex
