She Reads Truth: Advent : Day 2

God Promises to Faithful Abraham That in His Seed All Nations of the Earth Shall Be Blessed

“In your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed,”. A prophecy, a promise spoken to Abraham that was hinting at God’s great rescue for us. Abraham couldn’t have known. His descendants couldn’t have known. We – after the facts and the proof and the prophecies have been fulfilled - are still incredibly able to lose sight of the idea of what it means to be BLESSED by our Messiah, Jesus. Moreover, we are the very product of this promise - we are the nations. We are the blessing if we are in Christ Jesus - Galatians 3:7 tells us so, that we are called “sons of Abraham”.

When I think of being blessed, I think of my mom buying me a Starbucks out of the blue or my husband coming home from work early. I think of the day my first son was born. I can’t even fathom what “blessed” means to our Father when He uses it in reference to sending Jesus to earth for us – to live among us, die for our sin, and defeat death for eternity.

Let’s dwell on that for a moment, ask God to widen our scope of the how He has and is blessing us – as a redeeming Savior. That’s what we’re celebrating.
