Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:  And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:1-3 KJV

Abraham our Father in the faith was blessed by God Almighty to be a blessing. It’s through him that we are now blessed because he was a carrier of the gospel of salvation.

That’s why the Bible says “……And in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”. The blessings of Abraham came to us by faith. That is by believing in Jesus Christ our Lord.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3 KJV

We are blessed by God to be a blessing. The question is how are we a blessing? We only manifest the blessings of God Almighty in this world by preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord. When we don’t do that we become selfish of what we’ve received  from the Lord Jesus Christ.

In the book of Acts we saw how Peter preach God’s word and the gentiles were blessed with salvation and the Holy Spirit. (Please read Acts 10:38-46). So has God Almighty chosen us out of this world to be a blessing to the man in the world.

That’s why our Lord Jesus Christ gave us all His disciples the great commission mandate of preaching the gospel.

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15 KJV

Go in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and be a blessing.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank You for Your Word. I thank You for making me a blessing. Help me today by Your Spirit to release that blessing to someone else in need in the mighty name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
