The Purpose of Christian Prosperity
Is To Bless

According to the bible, the purpose of Christian prosperity is to bless. Many, including Christians, question the purpose of Christian prosperity. Is the purpose of Christian solely to edify the Christian, both naturally and spiritually or is the purpose of Christian prosperity to be a blessing to others? Let's explore various viewpoints on Christian prosperity.

There are those who believe that Christian prosperity is evidenced by the material wealth that the Christian has accumulated and that the purpose of Christian prosperity is to bless and meet the needs of the Christian who has been blessed with the abundance. One who has money, cars, jewelry and the like indeed may be a Christian who is prosperous but doesn't always feel that he or she should bless others with the resources that he or she has been blessed with. These individuals often take on the attitude "I got mine so they have to get theirs." These individuals usually amass the more and live their own lives in excess comfort convinced that their wealth is a sign of God's blessings and approval of their lives.

There are others who believe that the purpose of Christian prosperity is to bless and be a blessing to others. These individuals may amass great wealth and abundance but usually can be found giving to various causes, agencies who assist vulnerable populations and other philanthropic efforts. Which of these viewpoints are correct? Let's look at the Word of God:

       Titus 3:14 reads "And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful." From this Scripture, we see that one purpose of Christian prosperity is to meet our needs because God knows that Christians, like non-Christians, have physical, basic and daily needs.

       I Timothy 6:17 reads "Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;" Another purpose of Christian prosperity is so that the Christian can enjoy God's financial blessings. Throughout the Bible, we see God's desire and willingness to bless His people with abundance by His Word and also because we have read of men such as Abraham, Job and Solomon who had exceeding wealth.

Lastly, I Timothy 6:18 reads "That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute,.." the purpose of Christian prosperity is to bless so that the Christian will be a blessing to others by giving to churches, missions and other efforts as the Christian goes about helping to build the Kingdom of God.

There are many Scriptures that show the heart of God regarding the purpose of Christian prosperity which is to bless the Christian, provide for the Christian's needs and so that the Christian may learn the value of giving God's money, not the Christian's money, to promote Kingdom Building.
