The best way to answer this question is to see what God says about blessing and the way to bless someone. Turn with me to Numbers chapter 6 verses 22 through 27 and we’ll look at when God spoke to Moses about Aaron’s Blessing.Continue reading “What Is A Blessing?”
150 Key Bible Verses
Folks, knowing key Scripture passages is essential in your Spiritual growth. There are around 150 key verses that every follower of Jesus Christ should be familiar with. I’ll be sharing five a week with you. Remember…
“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17
Thoughts From Matthew 7:21
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.
God didn’t create heaven as a club for people who say the right password. Many people think they can do a few good deeds and get into heaven. Their goal is to get into heaven by the skin of their teeth and figure heaven is the reward for their efforts.
Folks, that is not how God figures it, though. It’s not easy to follow God’s will in this world. We have to resist sins that other people enjoy. We might have to put up with people making fun of us and accusing us of being narrow minded and unloving. We sometimes live as foreigners in a place where other people feel at home.
Remember, God understands our difficulties. He’s with us every step of the way. He knows what we go through and He’s here to help us. He rewards us with His presence, grace and forgiveness in this life, and we look forward to heaven in the next. When you think about it, that’s an unbeatable deal.
Enjoy your week and “keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.”
