Nothing Ventured, Yet Gained

Have you ever heard it said “nothing ventured, nothing gained.” It is a motto that implies that if we don’t step out and try in life, we are not going to reap a gain. While our Father does speak of us reaping what we sow into life, there is a gift of perfect gain that is ours just because we believe in Jesus, the Giver of all good gifts as His holy Word says (the Bible):

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights who does not change like shifting shadows.” 

James 1:17

“…your Father knows how to give good gifts to those who ask Him.”

Matthew 7:11

In the efforts of people to live perfectly on our own ventures, our Father makes clear that we will not gain heaven, but when we venture to place our faith in Christ, God became a man as our Savior on the cross to open up the gain of being a member of our Father’s forever kingdom family, we gain that – all the glorious riches of heaven as our forever home!!! It is truly a case of nothing ventured, great gain!!! Now how sweet is our Father to give us such a love gift as that, but He is also a great motivator also to us as His kingdom children of faith as He promises that when we do venture out into the world with a motive of doing good works for the cause of heaven, that we will gain on top of already having heaven forever!!! His promise to us is this:

“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”

Revelation 22:12

It is our choice in life as to what good things we choose to do and they are not to earn us a place in our Father’s kingdom. We always have a home with our Father through our faith in Him. It is up to our heart what we do in life. Father just says, you do extra things to bless me and others, you will be blessed for it. It will not go unnoticed!!! It is clearly a case of nothing ventured, great gain and extra venture, even greater gain!!! So whatever your heart chooses, dear ones of faith, you are forever loved with unfailing, unconditional love and blessed beyond all we can even begin to ask or imagine as Father tells us in His Word:

“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived – the things God has prepared for those who love him–

1 Corinthians 2:9

It has been my experience in life, though, as Father says it is true…as we step out into life to refresh others out of a motive of love for our Father who has blessed us with sooo much, our hearts here on earth will be greatly refreshed as well. There is joy to our own souls that is gained when we venture to love and oh that joy just makes us smile!!! Smiling in life – what a great gain for something ventured from the heart!!! How is your heart moved to venture into loving where you are today??? I smile as I think about you smiling at the gain it will bring to ya, dear ones!!! I like this song here that tells of giving thanks to Father for His good gifts to us and putting love in action to reveal Father’s love and goodness to others as our hearts are moved – such a beautiful thing!!! Amen?!! 🙂
