CHRIST AND HIS PURPOSE
Christ came to earth to erase the sins of man so that we were born debt free. He also wanted our lives to be filled with abundance. But abundance does not necessarily mean financial wealth. He was not referring to material things or money. God spoke of spiritual wealth, the kind that opens the gates to heaven.
Spiritual abundance extends beyond living on earth, it takes you to an afterlife in God's Kingdom. While on earth we have access to abundant blessings that are of the earth. Things needed to sustain life such as food, shelter, air, and water are available. These things can send you to hell or grant you eternal life. We need the spiritual connection that supports us on earth, then takes us to the here after. Living in spiritual abundance is being an example of Christ teachings.
Do not confuse abundance with wealth. Do not confuse prosperity with “having all that you need. Folks spend most of their life working to attain earthly wealth, while neglecting their spiritual well being. While having monetary things is nice, don’t social distance yourself away from Jesus Christ just to attain those things.
Wealth does not open the gates of heaven. If you seek abundance and prosperity, seek a solid relationship with Christ our Lord. Follow His commandments and treat others as you wish to be treated. Living an abundant life is caring, sharing, and helping others in the name of Christ.
A key to the gates of Heaven.
