"For in him you have been enriched in every way----in all your speaking and in all your knowlege" (1 Cor. 1:5).

How rich we are in Christ! As Christians, our whole lives are enriched in Him. "God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive in Christ" (Eph.1:4). "He did this that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable (limitless, surpassing) riches of His free grace (His unmerited favor) in kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus" (v.7).

Paul wrote, "For in Him,you have been enriched in EVERY WAY." We are enriched by Him not only in times of ease and prosperity, but in the dark days. We are enriched through each circumstance and experience of our lives. But our lives are not enriched just for our own use. He has promised to "help us" speak out for Him. We are a vital part of His communication system that takes the Gospel to the entire world. We have a message, His message, to share with others. We have a life, His life, to live before others.

Our lives are enriched by His wisdom and understanding. The Holy Spirit has been given to us to reveal His truth to us. "But I will send you the Comforter--the Holy Spirit, the source of all truth. He will come to you from the Father and will tell you about ME" (John 15:26). What an enrichment that is---"will tell you about ME" The Holy Spirit, the source of all truth, makes our Lord real to us. Through the Holy Spirit we "grow in grace, and in the knowlege of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18).

How rich we are today! ALL of His resourses are available for our use. He empowers us to speak for Him. He increases our knowlege of Himself. Each circumstance that He has entered our lives has made us richer. "For in him you have been enriched in every way."

"That though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich" (2 Cor. 8:9).

Have a great day. Let you light shine...Love mark Phil. 4:11
