CHOOSE TO BE A BLESSING
To succeed in your disciple making ministry, you must change the way you think about yourself. Because you are now connected to Christ, you are already blessed by God.
Stop thinking about wanting to be blessed. Start thinking about wanting to be a blessing to others.
Gen 12:2-3 EasyEnglish
2 (The Lord said), ‘I will make you the father of many children. I will bless you. Everyone will know your name. You will be a blessing to other people.’ 3 ‘I will bless people who bless you. I will curse people who curse you. I will bless all the people on the earth through you.’
Eph 1:3 NET
Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ.
People with the i-want-to-be-blessed mentally do not often bear fruit for Christ. They tend to focus on themselves and be selfish. They spend all their life praying for and seeking what Christ already provided them. So they couldn’t flow out
Some years ago I changed my prayers from God bless me to God make me a blessing. Bless people through me.
My life changed since then. I can tell you that it’s more blessed to give than to receive.
In other words, it’s more blessed to be a blessing than to just be blessed.
Instead of asking God to send helpers to you why not ask God to make you an helper of people’s destiny.
Go out today with the mentally that you are already blessed and ask yourself, who am I going to be blessing to?
This changes your focus and makes you attract opportunities to share God’s blessings to others.
The truth is that you are blessed by God to be a blessing.
How often have you been sharing the blessing.
- Bless people by praying for them to be saved and grow in Christ.
- Bless people by pursuing them in love. Love them and care for them with Christ’s Agape love.
- Bless people by giving them the word of God. The words of the gospel.
- Bless people in all ways you could.
FREELY YOU HAVE RECEIVED FREELY GIVE.
So change your thinking from want to be blessed to I AM ALREADY BLESSED AND WILL BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS.
I hope this is useful.
Yours, on mission with God.
