Spiritual Gain Through Loss
Matthew 10:39 (KJB) He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
Only with God can a man lose everything in this world and gain in the eternal realm.
Life really begins when a man or woman find a personal relationship with God, upon this sweet eternal relationship is built all the things of his life, in this world and forever in the eternal realm.
A man who finds a quickened alive spiritual life while sojourning in this world finds everything he needs to live forever.
A new spiritual life is really a newness to life found through loss in this world. Loss of death, loss of sin, loss of encumbrance, loss of spiritual baggage, and loss of fear.
Not only does a man or woman of God find Him through loss but they find an overabundance of faith, grace, and blessings from God in their new life with Christ. God brings them many blessings of spiritual value, both now and that will last forever. These blessings are poured out in great proportions in the eternal realm in a place that God has appointed just for us!
Great spiritual gains are found in a personal relationship with God, both now and forevermore! Anything that is lost or left behind in coming to know God through His Son Jesus Christ is not worth holding onto and can be counted as refuse compared to the vast riches of God.
