You Are Not a Millionaire. Here's Why ...

Description

Far too often, money is viewed as a source of identity. But if you are in Christ, your identity is not derived from anything external.

I hope my statement caught your attention.  You are not a millionaire unless you have a net worth of one million dollars or more. Okay, we all get that. But let’s say that you actually have a net worth in excess of one million dollars. Now are you a millionaire?  Uh, not if you are a Christian. 

Far too often, money is used as a source of our identity. This is especially true for those who are apart from Christ.  But in Christ, our identity is not derived from anything external. We are children of God, servants, ambassadors, citizens of heaven, fools for Christ and stewards of the Master and Creator of the Universe. Why would we want to be known for something as temporal as our financial condition?  Now listen carefully: You may have lots of money, or you may have no money at all. Those conditions are not who you are. You are not a rich man or a poor man. Don’t allow the world to give you that identity. You are a man or woman who belongs to Christ and He has promised to be your provider.

Paul wrote in Philippians 4:19: “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever.” 

Belonging to Christ is the greatest identity we could ever want to have. All other worldly identities are steps down from the honor to be in the family of God.  Be grateful for what He has provided, but remember who you are, regardless of the amount in your bank account or pocket.
