Prayerfully consider these four keys to wealth and riches in Christ, to apply them in your walk with Christ.
#1 KEYS TO RICHES IN CHRIST (God’s Goodness)– Psalm 72 The goodness of God was displayed in Solomen’s life and he was asking for more because he wanted to look after the widows, orphans and the poor. He was distributing what he had to give to others so that he could influence the world around him. This is what made him wealthy in many ways. It wasn’t how much riches he had, it was what he did with what God provided to him.
#2 – KEYS TO RICHES IN CHRIST (God’s goodness) – Find yourself “in Christ”. Jesus said in John 17, the glory the Father has given to me, I give to you. Ephesians 2:6 says you are seated in heavenly places in Christ. From heaven flows his blessings, through him, flows his blessing and in him exists every blessing. His Spirit dwells in you and you partake of his glory and goodness, by faith.
#3 KEYS TO RICHES IN CHRIST – (God’s goodness) – Unselfish Motive. Good leaders sacrifice in order to help others gain. Our motive should be to give God glory and to benefit others. Jesus marks this as a golden rule “Do to others what you want them to do to you.” (Matthew 7:12)
#4 KEYS TO WEALTH (God’s Goodness) – Increase comes from giving. “God so loved the world that he GAVE…” giving is a part of God’s nature. He gave the fullness of himself when he gave his Son Jesus, and he works his nature in us as we walk in Christ. You can give him praise, your talents, your resources. When you are doing this, you are stepping into the glory of God’s goodness (his wealth and riches) being manifested into your life.
