Do we want the "Gifts" more than the GIVER? Is money to pay our bills and give us what we want really a "Blessing"? Blessing defined, "is to speak well of...". In the Bible we find the word Blessing used as "Praise and Worship", "Salvation", "Approval and Love" and "Inheritances" of GOD. We do not find the word "Blessing" being used to indicate material possessions. What are our Blessings? They are the key benefits of a relationship with GOD through JESUS CHRIST. HE chose us before the foundation of the world, HE extends HIS grace and offers us Salvation, HE grants us to be HIS children, HE redeemed us (paid for our sins), HE forgives us, and HE puts HIS mark of ownership on us guaranteeing our eternal security with the HOLY SPIRIT. Ephesians 1:3, "...WHO has blessed us in CHRIST with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places." "Seek ye first the kingdom of GOD, and these things will be given unto you." Today, let us know our Blessings and NOT CONFUSE THE GIFTS WITH THE GIVER. ABUNDANT BLESSINGS!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
