March 18 Measuring Your Wealth

Scripture Reading: Romans 10:8–13

Key Verse: Romans 10:13

Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

If someone asked you if you are wealthy, you probably would respond negatively.

“I pay my bills and have a little left over. I do better than some, but I am certainly not wealthy.”

But did you know that in Christ Jesus you are immensely wealthy?

“I do not feel wealthy. From all indications, primarily my pocketbook, I definitely am not affluent.”

You are using the wrong standard. The things that man honors, God despises. By God’s measuring stick, you possess extraordinary riches. As a believer, you have the riches of God’s grace bestowed upon you through the gift of His Son, Christ Jesus.

There is no circumstance, no problem, no obstacle, that you face apart from the lavish grace of God. He gives wisdom, strength, guidance, patience, and love without limit. You are a wealthy saint because you have all the resources you need for life on earth, and in heaven, in the person of Jesus Christ.

God’s help is available whenever you need it. Eternal life is yours forever. His undeserved blessings overflow into your heart daily.

You are a wealthy saint. The treasures of a new life in Christ are completely yours.

Master, thank You for bestowing Your riches on me. Thank You for the treasures of my new life in Christ. Eternal life. Blessings of wisdom, strength, guidance, and patience. Love without limit.[1]
