ARE WE A BLESSING
“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:”
Genesis 12:2 KJV
Ira B. Wilson wrote the beautiful hymn “Make Me a Blessing”. Are we a blessing to others? Not only is it a privilege to be a Christian, we also have a responsibility to be a blessing to others. There are many people who are lonely and discouraged and feel like nobody loves them or cares about them.
Those of us who have invited Jesus into our heart to be our personal Saviour need to tell others how much Jesus loves them and cares about them. There were times when people would come to my home and invite me to church but nobody ever told me that Jesus loves me. I didn’t know Jesus loves me.
Do you know that Jesus loves you? He really does love you. He loves you even when you fail Him and hurt Him. We all fail Him and hurt Him at times. Jesus loves you so much He allowed them to crucify Him on a cross of horror and endured an excruciating pain that you and I will never know.
Let’s make a special effort to be a blessing for Jesus. What a privilege is ours to be loved by the Saviour of the world. O how I love Jesus. He is the Joy of my heart and the reason I’m living. What a Saviour! What a Friend, this Jesus of
! I long to see Him face to face. What a happy day that will be. Nazareth
