It is amazing the things we learn when things get rough and tough! I have never heard of toxic assets until the banks began to cry out to the government and the tax payer for help. What are toxic assets? As I understand it, they are the riskiest assets that could potentially bring huge losses to banks. They are what is known as bad debts that may not be recovered because the debtors have defaulted. News reports have it that the Treasury has launched a taxpayer-backed scheme to insure banks’ riskiest assets against further losses. The scheme aims to clean up banks’ balance sheets and to encourage them to lend more freely. Again, at the risk of repeating myself based on previous posts, man-made structures are fraught with toxins of all sorts and descriptions. So, the banks are no exemption. Man-made systems will always develop self-inflicted toxins. But Jehovah’s system will always remain toxin free! My advise is for you to join God’s system, there are no toxic assets there!
~ A word for your week ~ Eph 1:3-10
Beloved, our text this week teaches us that regardless of what we used to be, toxic assets, but in Christ, we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, forgiven of our sins – our pollution, corruption or toxins, accepted in the Beloved and blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Isn’t God good? Too good! While the banks maybe looking to the government and the tax-payer to insure them against their toxic assets, God calls us from the world with our toxins, washes and cleanses us and makes us new creations in Christ. God does not seek any insurance from anyone but rather gives us His Holy Spirit as the guarantee of our salvation (2 Cor 5:5). The point I am stressing here is that God can and will take those the world label as toxic assets – no good, dysfunctional, at risk, etc and clean them up with the redemptive blood of His Son and give them an inheritance among the saints, a blessing and a position in the heavenly places in Christ. Have you or anyone you know been labelled a toxic asset of some sort? Hey, our text says you will be accepted in the Beloved! Come as you are, He loves you and cares for you! With God there are not toxic assets but new creations in Christ! I am one and know He is able to do for you what He has done for me and countless others. Don’t delay further, He is waiting for you, to translate you from what the world calls a toxic asset to a new creation, a saint and child of Almighty God! Isn’t God good?
