Though he was rich, yet
for your sakes he became poor.
—2 Corinthians 8:9
Jesus’ sacrifice wasn’t only in what he gave, but also in what he gave up.
He gave up heaven for earth, divinity for humanity, a throne for a cross, and wealth for poverty.
Here is a verse that should bring us to our knees. Read slowly. Drink deeply. Pray thankfully …
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich (2 Cor. 8:9).
None was richer than he; none became poorer than he—so that we might become rich.
He became unimaginably poor
to make us unimaginably rich.
