For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written, For Thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerers through Him that loved us.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.v

- Romans 8:29-39


Read the Parable of the Rich Fool in Luke 12. Was this man "rich" or "poor"? Why was he a fool?

begin to be compared in magnitude to the exchange experienced by a poor, guilty son of Adam being changed into a rich, free, son of God through Christ's gracious merits! No prince on earth is heir to the greatness of wealth and treasure that God's chidren are. Which has more value to you, the riches of the "rich" man or of "poor" Lazarus in Luke 16?

    In Ayr, a county in Scotland, a hardened criminal was condemned to death by hanging for the terrible crimes he had committed. While awaiting his execution in prison, God worked wonderfully in his heart, regenerating and justifying him.

    Such rich evidences of personal repentance and assurance of God's forgiving mercy flowed forth from him that when he came to the place of execution, he could not refrain from repeatedly crying out, "I am so guilty! But God is such a great Forgiver! God is such a great Forgiver!"

    When standing at the border, ready to depart from time to enter eternity, who are "rich" and who are "poor"?

    Are you eternally "rich" or "poor"?
