God is for you. His heart is to give you every perfect gift through His Son, Jesus. The only thing God wants to take from you is your sin – that which blocks His blessing in your life. I had great fun putting together what I call GOSPEL MATHS to help you appreciate God’s extravagant love and His intense desire for you to gain from a relationship with Him…
God divided the light from the darkness (Genesis 1:4) He blessed Adam and Eve and said, “Be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:28) and promised Abraham to multiply his descendants as the stars of heaven (Genesis 26:4) In the Old Testament it was not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins (Hebrews 10:4) In the New Testament John saw Jesus and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29) Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments (Matthew 27:35) Jesus was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin (1 John 3:5) Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33)For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? (Luke 9:25) Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. (Proverbs 11:4)For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it(Hebrews 4:2)Jesus said, “Take away the stone (of unbelief)” (John 11:39) for the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved (Luke 8:12) “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go (Isaiah 48:17) I am the Lord your God, who divided the sea (Isaiah 51:15) For by Me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you (Proverbs 9:11)For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he may gain much, if God takes away his life? (Job 27:8) So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners (Proverbs 1:19) I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him (Ecclesiastes 3:14) what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ (Philippians 3:7) He must increase, but I must decrease (John 3:30)For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Philippians 1:21)
I drew up a balance sheet of my life and found it a very interesting exercise. Try it for yourself. Compare what you have lost in this life with what you have gained. With God you simply cannot lose!
