We are blessed

Hello friends,

Yes! God has blessed us a lot.

God wants to bless us so that we can be a blessing to others. There are so many ways that God can bless us: marriage, family, degree, satisfying career, nice house and car, great friends, good health, spiritual well-being and the list goes on.

We all enjoy being blessed, but we must remember that we cross a subtle line when these things become ends in themselves and Jesus becomes the means to these ends.

The end goal of our life as Christ followers is to be conformed and transformed to His image and to live the life He has purposed for us, not to use God to give us what we think we want or need. When God does indeed bless us, then we must always remember that we are blessed to be a blessing.
There truly is great joy found in blessing others!

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (Acts 20:35)

God bless you my friends,
Raju Paul
