Dear reader, if God was to produce his list of the 100 richest true Christians on earth today, you would be shocked. Very few, or even none of Forbes’s 100 Billionaires would make it on God’s list. Not even any of the 100 richest pastors on earth today would make it on that list.
God measures abundance differently.
God does not measure people’s abundance on earth as we do. Here on earth we measure abundance by how much money is on someone’s bank account, and how much property they have in terms of land, buildings, vehicles and other earthly possessions.
If you are a pastor, I advise you never to struggle being included on the list of the richest pastors in your country. Do not struggle to have the best house, best car or best plane because if you do, Jesus Christ and all the heavenly hosts will start laughing at you.
And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of [a]covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”
Your abundance is in heaven.
God measures people’s abundance by how much they have invested in heaven. If you are a minister of God and you are concerned about God’s Kingdom, you should only be preoccupied with how much investment you have made in heaven.
The widow who made it on God’s list of the richest Christians.
One time Jesus went to the temple to see who would make it on God’s list of the richest Christians on earth. Some of the the world’s Christian billionaires and richest pastors came purposely to the temple and waited patiently to hear their names being mentioned by Jesus. They were shocked when none of their names were mentioned.
Instead, someone unknown made it on God’s list of the richest Christians on earth. Jesus Christ gave the reason why:
And He said, Truly I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them;
4 For they all gave out of their abundance (their surplus); but she has contributed out of her lack and her want, putting in all that she had on which to live.
How to make it on God’s list of the richest Christians on Earth today.
Below I give some of the ways you can make it to God’s list of the richest Christians on earth.
Believe in Jesus Christ and his teachings in the Bible.
Seek God’s Kingdom and righteousness in whatever you do.
Invest as much as you can in the winning of lost souls for Jesus Christ.
Invest in the planting of new churches. Building only one church on Earth can make you a very rich person in Heaven.
Invest in helping the needy and disadvantaged.
Invest in the distribution of God’s written Word (the Bible) to all communities in the world.
Invest in other ways of expanding God’s Kingdom on Earth.
