Real Net Worth

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- January 6, 2012

“My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”. Colossians 2:2-3

Our financial net worth need not define who we are. If it does, we become fickled, fearful, faithless and enslaved to economic security. Our worth is not wrapped around Wall Street or Main Street, but the Streets of Gold. For followers of Jesus, what He believes about us defines us. I can become fixated on my personal balance sheet and murmur in disbelief, or I can believe what Jesus says about me—precious, highly valued, a king and a priest.

My worth is defined by the wonder of His grace, His unconditional love and His gift of eternal life. Money does not make the man, man makes the money, but most importantly our Master Jesus Christ marks us. The fingerprints of God are forever embedded on our body, soul and spirit. He bought us, so He owns us through the blood of His son Jesus. Our born again birth certificate reads, “Christian”. We are highly valued in heaven.

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:13

Christians have a much greater cause than cash and earthly kingdoms. There is a Kingdom, not of this world, whose goal is to glorify God. You are valuable, not by how much money you have, but by how much your Master has you. Your Savior Jesus defines you as a forgiven child of God who, by faith, is filled with the Holy Spirit for good works.

Guilt is replaced by grace, fear flees in the face of faith, pride melts under the influence of humility, and hope has its way in the heart of surrendered Christians. Therefore, define your net worth by the things Jesus deems valuable, and you are rich indeed. Count your many blessings, not your coins, and you will become content. You are of high net worth if ‘Christ in you’ is your hope in glory. Your real net worth is His eternal riches.

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” 2 Corinthians 8:9

What is my net worth as defined by what Jesus says are the most valuable assets I have?

    I’m the proprietor of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently aiming to expand my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the best way to do this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could recommend a reliable site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Mailing List I am already reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
