I once heard a story of a man who, when he was about to die, called his son and handed him a book. His son couldn’t believe his eyes, was he having a bad dream? “How cruel and selfish could my father be?” he thought …all he could give me out of his stupendous riches is a book”
His father’s death wasn’t as painful to him as this seemingly wicked act. Unknown to him, the book contained all the legal documents that he needed to claim his inheritance; all that his wealthy father had, but he was too sad to even open the book. All he could see was a picture of a cruel father and a son left to suffer in poverty.
Oh if only he knew who he really was?
If only he knew his true possessions?
Although he was the wealthiest of men, he lived in abject poverty simply because he never bothered to open the book his father left him.
We have stayed too long, thinking we are sinners and as a result, we have remained bound though we have been set free. We have been hindered from preaching the gospel, because we thought “what can a sinner (in Christ) like me tell the sinners of the world?”
Christ didn’t die on the cross so we could become ‘sinners in Christ’. A thousand times no! Rather, through His finished work, we became the righteousness of God! You are not the sinner you think you are – that’s the truth of God’s word, a revelation you can only comprehend from studying God’s word.
What picture do you have of God? Is He to you a good or cruel father?
My dear, how you see God really affects everything in life & inorder to have the right picture of Him, we have got to study the WORD for ourselves…in it, lies the hidden treasures of wisdom, wealth, power, glory, strength, knowledge & honour.
“So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” Acts 20:32 NKJV
