God's Royal Insurance Policy
Being a servant of God has so many benefits that it truly is a royal insurance policy. God’s royal insurance policy protects you from famine, disease and war (Psalm 33:19; 91:3, 5-7; 103:3; Prov. 10:3). It will lead you out of all your troubles (Job 5:20-27; Prov. 11:8; 12:13, 21). All things in life turn out for good for those who are the policy holders (Rom. 8:28). If someone came to your door and offered such a policy and you had faith in the company, it would be the easiest policy in the world to sell (Acts 2:40).
This policy gives you wisdom just for the asking, spiritual power just for the asking, and answered prayer, when in accordance with the will of the policy (James 1:5; 1 John 3:22; John 9:31; 15:7, 16; 16:24; Matt. 21:22). It guarantees you nice things for your home, abundance, joy, peace and love, as Abraham had (John 10:10; 17:13; Gen. 24:1; 25:8). It guarantees you obedient children who do not go astray when they are older (Prov. 22:6), when you follow the royal advice of Proverbs 29:15 and 17. It even guarantees you power to get wealth the right way, God’s Way (Prov. 10:22; 13:21).
God wants you to partake in this royal insurance policy, but you must remain faithful to the premium. Jesus Christ qualified you to be a policy holder regardless of your present condition, but you must not stay in your present condition. You must die to self and deny your old way of life daily (1 Cor. 15:31; Luke 9:23). Instead, you must live Christ’s new Way of life (Heb. 10:20; Matt. 21:32). This is done by practicing righteousness, good deeds and good works to please and glorify the Father (1 John 2:29; Gal. 6:9; John 10:25, 32, 37-38; 14:12; Matt. 5:16). You must do all that you do and say in Christ’s name as a happy slave of Christ (Col. 3:17; Eph. 6:6; Rom. 6:18-19).
Overcome your nature by doing good, being zealous, persevering in good works and keeping Christ’s deeds, which are all righteous as God’s righteousness (1 Peter 3:13; Rom. 12:21; 2:7; 10:3; Luke 21:19; Rev. 2:26; Prov. 19:17). You must strive until God creates in you a new nature, establishes you, and puts your nature under your heel (Luke 13:24; Prov. 22:9; 1 Peter 5:10; Heb. 10:36; Rom. 16:20).
Jesus Christ’s Way is easy and pleasant (Matt. 11:30). Children would have no problem with it (Matt. 19:14; 18:4). But once you start, don’t look back; just keep going straight forward into the good life, which is the godly life that God has been waiting for many to live (Luke 17:31; 1 Tim. 4:7; Eph. 5:1; 1 Cor. 11:1; Titus 1:1).
