2 Cor. 8, 9

I.

Before coming to earth Jesus Christ was rich with the Father in heaven.  [He] was equal with the Father and worshiped by the angels–his right.

II.

But he left the courts of glory [and] came to earth, for our sakes.  He became poor, “emptied himself,” that we might be made rich.  How greatly he has enriched us–and especially all who trust him for salvation.

(a)  Our thoughts of God and man have been greatly elevated.  God is our Father and all we are brethren.  This is truly great.  Reverence and godly fear:  proper respect for personality.

(b)  He has given the world religious freedom and culture.  Before the law all men are equal.  Did he not die for all alike?  Hence the care for the unfortunate, the aged, etc., and the educational privileges for all.

(c)  Salvation urged upon men without money and without price.  Who can estimate its worth?

(d)  Grace for every need.  No despair to the Christian–hope of heaven when life ends.

How rich he makes the trustful soul!

Is he yours?
