DAY 8 THURSDAY: OCTOBER 2020

BLESSED TO PROSPER IN JESUS CHRIST!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ (Ephesians 1:3).

Every Christian had been blessed to prosper in Christ Jesus. God has blessed you beyond your imaginations and nothing can stop your blessings in Jesus Christ. God expects you to constantly activate your blessings in Christ Jesus by faith in life. The Bible says in the opening text that blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he had been blessed to prosper in Christ Jesus. Whenever a Christian constantly dwells in Christ Jesus he experiences the prosperity of the Lord in life forever.

As a Christian, you are the direct beneficiary of the blessings of Abraham in life. According to the Scriptures, Abraham happened to be the father of all nations in life. Through him, God decided to bless all nations and races of the earth in life. That is why the Bible says in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Therefore, through Jesus Christ a Christian receives the full blessings of Abrahamic covenant into his life. The Abrahamic covenant of God is indeed perpetually sealed by the blood of Jesus Christ in life forever.

A Christian is entitled to every blessing of God made to Abraham because he is a direct descendant and heir apparent to Abraham through Christ Jesus in life. Therefore, whatever promised that God had made to Abraham is yours in Christ Jesus. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:21, “…For all things are yours.” In fact, it is indeed through the Name of Jesus Christ every Christian receives all things from God into his life. God has blessed you above all things and He wants you to prosper in Christ Jesus. Definitely, the life that constantly grows in Christ Jesus is indeed the life that flourishes and prospers in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian had been blessed by God in Christ Jesus; therefore, he is highly expected to live his life in prosperity and abundance in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9).
