The Amex campaign was trying to sell the message that the Amex card is not merely a charge card; being an Amex card member entitles you to many benefits and privileges that are far superior what other cards offer. In other words, being an Amex card member makes you special.
My fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, do you know that you too enjoy benefits and privileges when you become a member of the Body of Christ? Do you know that you are special when you are in Christ?
Many Christians do not realize that membership in Christ has its privileges. They think that being a Christian is all about sacrificing or suffering for Christ. NO, my friend! Christ is the one who suffered and sacrificed so that you can enjoy the benefits!
Benefit 1: All your sins are FORGIVEN.
Benefit 2: All your diseases are HEALED.
Benefit 3: Your life is REDEEMED from destruction.
Benefit 4: You are CROWNED with lovingkindness and tender mercies.
Benefit 5: Your mouth is SATISFIED with good.
Am I making all this up or is it just my wishful thinking? NO, my friend! This is all written in the membership handbook! Haven't you read it?
Psalm 103:1-5 (NKJV)1 Bless the LORD, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Membership has its privileges and don't you forget it!
