Be a Blessing

Genesis 12:2

“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. NIV.

You were created to be a blessing for God and others! Just like Abraham was blessed by God as His chosen vessel to fulfill His plans for humanity, God has chosen and blessed you to be a blessing for others.

Many of us spend most of our lives seeking to be blessed. We want God’s favor. We want riches, relationships, and respect. We want. We want. We want. Yet somewhere in our journey we will meet up with our true self and come to realize what a blind, ignorant, self-centered creature we have been.

We will eventually repent of our attitude and behavior. We will then begin to better hear God’s truth as He unfolds our story with His and begins to renovate our heart. The end result is a new creation patterned after Jesus Christ.

So why fight it any longer?

The sooner we come to realize we are all walking down a path which will eventually end in death makes us all realize what Paul wrote about in 1 Corinthians 15:26. The #1 enemy of all humanity is death.

However, the #1 solution has already arrived. His name is Jesus. He resolved our dilemma by living a perfect life and offering His life in exchange for ours. In the process He opened the door for us to begin exploring eternity.

When the realization hits you that God has a universal eternal plan that already includes you, me, and our neighbors, our typical response is “how do I join?”

When you join Him in His walk, He rubs off on you. His Character, Attitude, and Values become yours. You begin to see life through His eyes. You heart opens up for the success of others. You find ways to contribute your talents, gifts, and treasures for the betterment of others.

You come to realize you were created to be a blessing for God and others. Wherever you walk with God, you seek ways to uplift others, restore those who have been broken, and introduce everyone to the One who is the Center of Life. He is the source of everything good, the truth, and the way.

In other words, since you were created to be a blessing, who will you bless today?

Rooting For You in Christ!
