Majority of us are seeking material wealth by working hard in our jobs or businesses. Its mostly for a good cause, I don't deny that. But, we seldom spend enough time to think about pursuing Spiritual Wealth.
Spiritual Wealth or well-being is some thing to do with our spirit or soul present in our physical body.
The better your Spirit. The better will be your life on earth.
Then, How can you ever obtain it ? The Bible says "God is a Spirit.". And also that "He is Father of spirits.". Therefore, We need God to make us Spiritually Wealthy.
God is ever-willing to give us Spiritual Wealth. It is we who are not interested. The mistake lies with us and not God. We do not ask Him.
Obtaining Spiritual Wealth is a process. It takes time.
We need to have desire for it. The more we thirst and hunger for it, more we obtain. Its just like water or food. The more thirsty we are more we drink water or more hungry we are, more food we eat.
The Bible says "God created Universe, Heaven and Earth. And all things that move on earth.". And then God created man from dust according to His image. What a privilege ! We are all made in image of God !
Then, God breathed into nostrils of man shaped from dust. And then Man came to life. So, each one of us have God-breathed spirit in us.
The physical body has its own cycle of growth. And at end of cycle physical body dies. If you observe, body slowly becomes dust again. But, what happens to that God-breathed spirit in us ? It will still be alive even though body is dead.
Ideally, it should return back to God. But, Here lies crux of problem. It does not return back to God. It keeps roaming here and there in world of spirits. Why is this so ?
This is because, spirit was not reconciled to God during its tenure on earth being in God-given body.
Please be informed, my dear friend, that our spirit reconciling to God is Most Important thing in our life. The earlier this happens better.
The spirit CAN be reconciled to God when we deal with SIN in our life. We need to get our spirits cleansed from sin. You may say I have not sinned since my birth. I have lived a good life. I did not hurt anyone etc.. Sorry Sir, this is a lie and you are in grave deception.
The Bible says "All have sinned and fallen short of glory of God.". The Bible says God is Holy. The Bible also says God is Judge. If God judges us, we shall all receive only death penalty.
In order to save mankind from this death penalty, The Father of Spirits, God who created heaven and earth, came to earth in human bodily form and Himself became penalty for us. He lived a sinless life.
Misunderstood people killed Him by nailing Him onto Cross. He allowed them for our sake. His sinless precious blood was shed on Cross. This was suffered by Him for our sake. So that our spirit may not face death penalty, but could be reconciled to God.
This happened 2000 years ago. He is none other than Lord Jesus Christ. Unlike us, who were born of parents through human reproduction, He was born of Holy Spirit and was borne in womb by Virgin Mary.
Steps for getting reconciled to God :-
1) You need to sincerely repent and confess your sins before Almighty God. 2) You need to ask Him to wash your heart clean with precious blood of Jesus Christ. 3) You need to ask Jesus Christ to enter into your heart (or inner spirit being). 4) You need to give responsibility of your life into His Most Able Hands. 5) You need to make a decision that you will, from now onwards, do all things as per His will and NOT as per your wish and will. 6) You need to pray regularly. Someone said prayer is like breathing ! 7) You need to read and meditate on Bible regularly in order to grow strong. 8) You need to ask God to show you His will so that you may accomplish His will in your life. The ultimate goal of a human being is to do will of God ! 9) You need to constantly strive to overcome sins in your life asking help or grace from God in prayer. 10) You need to make friends with other people who have done above steps in their life. 11) And, continuously ask God for all your needs and aspirations. He will give them to you as long as it is a morally right thing and coincides with His will too.
