Hi there darlings, sweethearts, how are you all doing ? Today I want to talk about Blessing. What is a Blessing ? How can we be a Blessing ? Blessing my dear friends goes back in time to the very Beginning to the time of Creation, when the Lord God created the world he said it was good and in saying it was good he Blessed the world with goodness, then the Lord God created man and woman and Blessed them. Because they were God’s handiwork and beautiful in His sight.Then get ready for the sad music, yes man and woman brought a curse on themselves by disobeying Lord God Almighty by eating the fruit of knowledge and now man hard to work for his food and man did not walk with God anymore as in the days when he walked in obedience with our Creator Lord.
But there was still a communion between man and God. What I am trying to say is when we are obedient to the Lord there is a Blessing and with disobedience comes a curse.Now come a few rhetorical questions, How do we obey the Lord at all times ? Is it possible to be a perfect Christian? How does God judge disobedience in the 21st centaury ?
Dear ones there was only one ever perfect man and that was our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and He lived a blameless life and suffered and died for us so that through His righteousness Our unrighteousness may be made pure, and we may be justified through His grace and love that he poured out for us on Calvary.You my dear friend are pure, may be you have addictions but through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ when we repent and ask for forgiveness we are like pure white blankets the stain of sin is removed and Satan may remind you of past sin but our Lord has forgiven and forgotten it.
That by itself is the greatest Blessing God has given us the Blessing of justification. Now when the Lord God justifies us we are Blessed with the knowledge of knowing we are going to spend eternity with Our Lord Jesus Christ and “as we try and climb the steps of glory to glory we know that one day we will glorified and pure as Him” ( glory to glory part taken from Sunday morning message at church)
Now we can be a Blessing when we obey the word and the theme that runs all through the Bible like a scarlet thread of the Blood of Christ is LOVE and when we reach out in love not just for those to like us but for those who do not like us then we incur the Blessing of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus showed us true love and He was Blessed by God the father, how much more should you and I be an ambassador of love to the fallen, broken, lonely an d those who hate us without cause, Dear ones let us love this love can only come through the word and prayer and let us reflect Christ and Be a Blessing in doing this we will be Blessed.
Love overcomes, hate, pride, prejudice, partiality and like a light reflects and radiates Blessings in a dark and fallen world.Let our prayer be Lord make me a channel of love . Be Blessed !!
