DIG for Sunday the 9th of April…..yes, this verse is about money…..2 Corinthians 8 v 9

As I have often written there are times when we need to understand a “wee bit” of Greek in order to truly understand a passage or verse.

Take for example 2 Corinthians 8 v 9.

In this verse we are told Jesus who was rich became poor so that we might be made rich.

Now, the majority of teachers will tell you this is about spiritual l richness, however if you understand the Greek it reveals a different truth.

“Rich” means to be wealthy in terms of money and goods.

“Poor” means to be like a beggar with regards to possessions.

This verse is talking about material goods and that most ugly of words, money!

Many commentaries will tell you Jesus lived in poverty, but that is nonsense.

If He were so poor how could He afford to have such an entourage with Him?

If He were so poor how did He need someone to handle His finances?

Now, remember what I wrote yesterday; prosperity is not for your greed but to allow you to sow into the Kingdom and give unto every good work.

It is not selfish to want to see your prosperity made manifest; I would say it is very selfish not to want prosperity.

Why would you not want to sow into the Kingdom or give unto every good work?

Jesus died to provide you with prosperity and abundance.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you have provided for my prosperity through the finished work of Jesus Christ”.

2 Corinthians 8 v 9….For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
