Since you’ve been a Christian, you’ve been rich.
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. – 2 Corinthians 8:9
You are already rich. But, you must connect your faith to grace to reap the full benefits of this verse- through your sowing. Remember, grace by itself, is dead and faith, by itself, is dead.
The grace camp, by itself, would say: “It’s already done, so it’s not necessary to sow your seed.”
The faith camp, by itself, would say: “Sow, sow, sow – to get God to move on your behalf.”
When grace and faith are working together, it says: “My sowing is an act of faith. It is my positive response to the riches that God has already provided for me.”
