4. All of God’s blessings, all of God Himself is given to His children because of what Jesus did for us.
“Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
V23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.”
- Jesus wouldn’t come to you
- Call you out of darkness into the light
- Fit you for spiritual gifts
God knows that to empower you, He would have to bless you.
God knows what you need to be full of joy.
God knows that He must do it, that you cannot bring your own blessings.
God knows how to give good blessings to His children.
God has prepared this whole universe for you.
You have to be careful and not perseverate on the things you haven’t received from God. Your hope is not in the things that have passed, but in the things to come. God’s promises are not for yesterday, but for tomorrow.
You want to get into the practice of applying your faith to believe to receive all that God has for you.
You are not offended in Jesus. You are blessed in Jesus. The name of Jesus sends joy and peace down into your soul. You call on the name of Jesus because you know that it is this name that sets you free. Do you believe that?
Note: I know for many good Christian people that they have never experienced with understanding that God, in the person of The Holy Spirit lives inside them. God's home is your soul. If God is that close and cares that much about you and you don't feel it or get it and God seems more like a figurehead for the church to you; have you contemplated why you feel this way? It is because of conditioning from the church. People, not that close to the Lord are teaching people how to get close to the Lord. People having never entered the Holy of Holies are training people how to get into the Holy of Holies. It has always been God and you and it always will be God and you. What are you going to do about that?
And that brings us to the fifth thing Jesus did for you.
