What we don’t need:

  1. Health, wealth & prosperity
  2. Stocks, investments & benefits
  3. 401K’s
  4. Nice homes
  5. Fancy Vacations
  6. Status, power, and worldly perks
  7. Nice clothes
  8. Physical Security
  9. Physical Safety
  10. Men’s approval
  11. Comfort and ease
  12. Things of this world which will fade and burn like grass
  13. Our own resources
  14. This world system with all it’s evil
  15. Goods, kindred and this mortal life

What we have, which God has given us as a gift:

  1. God Himself, Truth, salvation and His everlasting love for us
  2. Christ our Treasure in heaven
  3. Christ our Pearl of Great Price
  4. Our home in heaven with Jesus our Savior
  5. Intimacy with Christ
  6. Spiritual blessings in Christ
  7. Robes of Christ’s righteousness
  8. Eternal security in Christ
  9. Safety from the wrath of God, also every work accomplished by the death of Christ on our behalf
  10. God’s approval because we are in Christ
  11. Our cross we carry, as we follow Christ, which is light and not burdensome, because He is so worthy
  12. His eternal Word
  13. His Holy Spirit: comfort, wisdom, guidance, intercession, strength, help and supernatural power
  14. The promise of being with Christ our Lord when He calls us home, or when He returns
  15. The promise of The Resurrection of the just

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ… Eph.1:3.

  1. Hi Loretta, I think you nailed just about everything that we need and don’t need. I think too often we forget all this when we are going through a trial or a struggle in our life. The truth is that Christ is all and more than we need.

    It looks like you are wonderful encouragement to so many and may God bless you for that. I also write to give people the hope that God has a plan for us that cannot be stopped. We just need to believe. Sometimes it is tough. That is why we need to reach out and share our witness to those who are hurting.

    Keep up the kingdom work!

  2. Amen Marianne, thank you for writing in. I’d love to read your writing- let us know if it is on the web. We have so much more than what I thought of in that list- like He has also provided His loyal angels to help us, and also each of us to bless and encourage one another! The many ways He provides for our needs is just amazing!

  3. Hi again.

    I also believe when we get to glory we are going to find even MORE than we realized of how God always had a way to provide all that we need.

    In the meantime, let’s encourage one another.

    Love to you and God bless you for your good work.

  4. Just wanted to say that I also believe the Pearl of great price is the church which God paid such a great price for in Christ’s blood. I like both interpretations.
