If you want to raise the ire of a lot of religious Christians today, start talking about prosperity. There is probably no topic in the Body of Christ that is more polarizing.

I believe in prosperity and I will teach prosperity because God is the God of more-than-enough, not the God of lack.

But God sent me here, today, to tell you that it is His will for you to prosper. Indeed, He wants you to prosper in every area of your life. Let’s take a look at what Jesus said, first:

(Mark 10:29-31 ESV) 29 Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, 30 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. 31

First and foremost, Jesus is telling us that there’s more to following Him than pie-in-the-sky-in-the-sweet-by-and-by! There is an earthly reward for following him.

Note: The remainder of this message is in the video linked above. Thanks for watching!
