Prosperity Gospel Attracts Worldly Christians
We came into this world with nothing and when we leave this world we will take nothing with us. If we love this world and the things of the world then the love of Christ cannot be in us. If we love the things of this world then we will not follow Jesus Christ, we will cling to these things of the world.
The prosperity gospel appeals to worldly Christians, those who love the world and the things of the world. They do not have the love of Christ in them and they think that Jesus Christ came to make them rich and prosperous.
The prosperity gospel is not the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ requires of us that we deny ourselves, pick up our cross and follow Him every day, that we be willing to leave everything behind and GO where He sends us, that we love Him more than the things of the world.
If we love this world and the things of the world then we cannot be of the kingdom of God. Nobody can serve two masters, either we love Jesus Christ and we go after Him or we go after prosperity, riches and the pleasures of this world.
Do we love Jesus Christ or are the things of this world precious to us?
May Jesus bless you.
