Theme: Be a blessing
Text: Genesis 12:2 (NLT)
I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others.
Let me start this week’s lesson with a quote from Jack Hyles. He wrote and I quote: “the greatest blessing to the world is being a blessing”. Well, I find that interesting to ponder on.
For God told Abraham that I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. Let us spend today’s discussion on this statement. It was going to be God’s responsibility to bless Abraham. He was going to be wealthy and in addition, he will be famous. Abraham’s responsibility, however, was to be a blessing to others. It is just like the God has made us lights of the world and has not covered us up, so that we, the lights, and not the one who makes the light, will shine for all men to see. Every good work God has been preparing you for is to be a blessing to others.
God did not add another day to your life because you needed it. He did it because someone out there needs you. Be the light in someone’s darkness in this season and beyond.
