"What are the benefits?"
It’s a fair question when applying for a job, looking for a new place to live, or considering a membership.
But did you realize there are incredible benefits made available to us when we come to know the Lord?
Heaven is a wonderful place and the benefits for the believer are out of this world! -Billy Graham
He has a great point, but I’m equally grateful that we get far more than heaven.
He promises us His presence daily now and forever!
When we keep our minds focused on Him, He offers us peace.
"You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you." -Isaiah 26:3
You may think that word means something monetary, but it’s much more than that. The Bible shows us that as God's people followed His instructions, the Lord prospered them; He provided all they needed, and He still does! God is all we need.
"Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." -3 John 1:2
Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. -Psalm 103:2-5
