Way To Wealth: God Is Able To Make All Grace Abound Towards You

Wealth is not an esoteric thing, it is practical. But as Christians, wealth is not in isolation from our identity as followers of Jesus Christ. We are who we are, either in the prayer room, connecting with God or in the marketplace, creating wealth. Wealth is not alien to the God of heaven. So for a Christian, if I do not like wealth, it may be that I do not like God, it may mean that I have put God in a box. But there is healthy and unhealthy wealth. Unhealthy wealth is wealth in which relationship with God and relationship with others suffer. Healthy wealth is when relationship with God, and others is equally healthy; and that is combined with physical health. While this book is basically about material wealth, we will not be blind as to think that is the ultimate.

That is the context of the prayer of John for someone. He said: I pray above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers. There is the soul prosperity, which is about relationship with God, knowing and reflecting him. There is physical prosperity, which is living your life in vigour, with your mind faculty sharp. And there is material prosperity, which is Paul's immediate reference when he said that God is able to make all grace abound towards us.

A non-Christian can be wealthy, but since his relationship with God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ is in place, he is poorer in the ultimate sense than the poorest of saint. It is a wealthy thing to hold material wealth in that kind of perspective.

Jesus told a wealthy ruler to sell all he has and follow him. When you are able to do that, then you are wealthy indeed. When how God sees you is more important that how others see you, then you are in the right shape, having the right kind of valuation.

With that said, let us delve into this discuss as we look into wealth from the biblical perspective. Becoming wealthy as a Christian starts with the right motivation, thinking and action. The right motivation is that God wants me to be wealthy because he loves me. The right thinking is that I am already wealthy because I have Christ, the right action is that I work hard, putting the first two in mind.

Derived from that motivation is that God does not want me to be dependent on anyone, or owe anyone. He also wants me to be a giver.

Derived from the right thinking is that I am not inferior anybody because of what the person has. I am not therefore running after money to prove a point, to win someone approval. I do not enter the rat race of wealth. I do not compare myself with another. In the same way, I do not feel superior because I am wealthier than others.

Wealth is not an esoteric thing, it is practical. But as Christians, wealth is not in isolation from our identity as followers of Jesus Christ.

Wealth is not alien to the God of heaven. So for a Christian, if I do not like wealth, it may be that I do not like God, it may mean that I have put God in a box.
