The Best Investment You will Ever Make

"The future reward is unlimited - Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God." - (John 6:68 NIV) 

In the world of investing, a contrarion is someone who invests in
what is currently out of favour. When a valuable commodity or an
industry becomes unpopular, contrarion investors buy, and then wait
patiently for their investment to pay off, as the world situation
changes. They buy based upon their faith in the underlying value of
the investment.

Could there be a better time for us to buy as much stock as possible
in Jesus Christ, even if it takes everything we have, even though he
may be "out of favour" in this wicked world? Sure, I know he wasn't
the kind of king mankind expected, and most people only put faith in
what is powerful here and now, but let's consider some of the
underlying value that makes Jesus, God's "suffering servant", the
investment opportunity of our lifetime.

The future reward is unlimited - Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God. (John 6:68 NIV)

This investment pays great dividends - "I tell you the truth," Jesus
replied, "no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother
or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to
receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields -- and with them persecutions)and in the age to come, eternal life". (Mark 10:29-30 NIV)

This investment will humble every rival - Therefore God exalted him
to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christis Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-10 NIV)

Security in insecure times - On the earth, nations will be in anguish
and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint
from terror, apprehensive at what is coming on the world, for the
heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of
Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these thingsbegin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your salvation is drawing near. (Luke 21:25-28 NIV)

Only available for a limited time - In the time of my favor I heard
you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, now is the
time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2

No one is too poor to invest - That if you confess with your
mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him
from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9 NIV)

I don't mean to make light of our Saviour by comparing him to an
investment, but in reality, Jesus Christ is an investment choice that
every one of us must make. Let us not be deceived, for there is not
another name under heaven by which we can receive salvation and
everlasting life. If we have not done so already, we must make our
investment today, while there is still time.

Prayer: Our Loving Father God in Heaven, we claim Jesus as our Lord and King. We freely admit our wretchedness, and bow before You, seeking mercy through the blood of Jesus Christ. Thank You for Your patience, Father, for allowing time for each of us to come to this moment of realization, that nothing else in heaven or earth is as precious as the life-giving blood of Jesus Christ, Your Son. Thank
you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
