When J. P. Morgan, the American financier and investment banker, died, it was found that his will consisted of about 10,000 words and 37 articles. He made many transactions, some involving large sums of money. However, this what he considered his most important transaction: “I commit my soul into the hands of my Saviour, in full confidence that, having redeemed and washed it in His most precious blood, He will present it faultless before my heavenly Father; and I entreat my children to maintain and defend, at all hazard and at any cost of personal sacrifice, the blessed doctrine of complete atonement for sin through the blood of Jesus Christ, once offered, and through that alone.” J. P. Morgan understood that in the matter of his soul’s eternal blessing, his vast wealth was powerless. Giving his life to Christ and receiving the spirit of adoption was his most important transaction. Have you also made this transaction? Understand, that no matter who you are or what you have done, only Christ can save you, for only the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin.
I find JP Morgan’s story fascinating. I leave you with two of his quotes
“Gold is money. Everything else is credit.”
“No problem can be solved until it is reduced to some simple form. The changing of a vague difficulty into a specific, concrete form is a very essential element in thinking.”
