  • The Witness Of Poverty

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Mar 30, 2019

God’s kingdom, when we are confirmed as its citizens after our life on this earth, is a reign of plenty, a restoration more

  • The Poverty In Riches Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Mar 14, 2018

    A rich young man came to Jesus desiring eternal life. He felt good about himself, but left saddened because he was unwilling to meet the Lord's demands for eternal life. We must come to the Lord by faith alone for salvation.

    The Poverty in Riches Mark 10: 17-22 Our text today reveals a young man very eager to get to Jesus. It is apparent that he had heard of Jesus’ ministry and the promise of eternal life. We will discover that this young man was blessed with all one could desire. He had wealth; he had status and more

  • The Poverty That Enriches

    Contributed by Kenneth Trent on May 21, 2005
    based on 17 ratings

    No sensible person enjoys being poor. None of us would strive for actual “poverty status” in life. Jesus is referring to another kind of "poverty", one that enriches.

    THE POVERTY THAT ENRICHES “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:3. No sensible person enjoys being poor. None of us would strive for actual “poverty status” in life. In our text, our Lord is not extolling the benefits of being economically poor. He more

    based on 4 ratings

    We are created to bear fruit. If you don’t bear fruit then it is a sign that things are not well with you. Fruitfulness should be the purpose of life. In fact, throughout Jesus’ ministry, He constantly talked about how we should bear fruit.

    As we continue our series on the Sermon on the Mount, we dive into the descriptions of a Christian’s character as defined by Christ in the Beatitudes. "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

  • Rich In Poverty Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 2, 2021

    There are rich Christians who live in utter poverty says Jesus. But to the church in Smyrna He says, "I know your afflictions and your poverty-yet you are rich!" So you have in the judgment of Jesus your poor Christians who are rich, and your rich Christians who are poor.

    One of the great paradoxes of life is the fact that the poor can be richer than the rich. Poverty is no necessary hindrance to being wealthy. Wealth, on the other hand, is no guarantee of being truly rich. Even rich Christians are often not rich just because they have wealth. Charles Schultz, more

    The two things that break God’s heart are people in need and people in greed. God’s people must be those who minister to those in need and never tainted by greed.
