Jesus is God's Blessing (Feb. 26th, 2019)

"God sent his chosen Son to you first, because God wanted to bless you and make each one of you turn away from your sins." (Acts 3:26 CEV)



The Lord Jesus came as a blessing to the world, to save men and to bring them into fellowship with Himself, but the people of the world didn't accept Him. Even the Jews, through whom He came, didn't accept Him because He came as a man. He wasn't what they expected. They weren't expecting someone that looked as ordinary as themselves! But Jesus is by no means ordinary-- He is Himself God. Even still, He didn't come to the world as God.


(Philippians 2:6-8)

"Who, being in the form of God... made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross."

They expected a ruler, but because they were spiritually blind, they didn't realize that the one who walked among them was the ruler of Heaven and earth, the Monarch of the Universe. They expected a Messiah, and He was the Messiah.


Jesus is all that the Jews and the world were looking for and more, packaged in one divine personality, but they didn't recognize Him. He wasn't packaged the way they expected, so they killed Him.


(John 1:11-12)

"He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name."

If you've never been born again, it means you haven't received Him-- you haven't accepted God's blessing. Jesus is all the blessings of Heaven personified. To have Him is to have everything. It makes no difference what you've been searching for in life or what you're in need of, receive Jesus, and your search, thirst, and pursuit of happiness will be over. He's the one-stop shop for everything divine, sublime, or transcendent that you could ever need. He's your life, your peace, your salvation, your prosperity, your wisdom, your righteousness-- your everything! He's God's blessing to you! Hallelujah!


Confession:

Blessed Jesus, you're the lover of my soul, and the personality of my deepest affection. You mean more than the world to me. I acknowledge you as God's ultimate blessing to me, and I walk in the light of all that I am in, and to you. Amen.
