How Jesus Enriches Everything
Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
1 Timothy 6:17
Recommended Reading – Psalm 14
Christopher Hitchens was a leading voice among the new militant atheists, and his dislike of the Lord was evident in the title of one of his books: God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. He and other secularists accuse Christianity of robbing life of its joys. Christianity, they say, spoils the fun and ruins everything for everyone.
Oh, how wrong they are! Those of us who are Christ-followers can’t imagine a life without Jesus. Every day with Him is sweeter than the day before. Jesus came to give us life and to give it more abundantly (John 10:10). His laws are not given to prevent pleasure but to bless and protect us. His Word is for our good (Deuteronomy 10:13), for our learning (Romans 15:4), and for our benefit (2 Timothy 3:16-17). God’s plans for us aren’t intended to harm but to prosper us (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV). We have a living God who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
Let’s write a book about our daily lives with the pages open for all to see, and let’s title it: God Is Very Great: How Jesus Enriches Everything.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
C. S. Lewis
