“I Will Bless Thee and Make Thee a Blessing.”   1 comment

Gen. 12, 2


God had great and far-reaching things in mind concerning Abraham–so great their influence would extend to all time & into eternity.  Hence his promise to bless Abraham.


No man is of himself equal to life’s opportunities & responsibilities.  At best he is weak and cannot see into the future.  He needs divine guidance and wisdom & strength.  He needs to have his proven developed & there to consecrate them to God.


God’s great purpose is service.  Men need help and God wants to make all who receive his grace a blessing to others.  “Then will tell to sinners round/What a dear Savior I have found.” “And ye shall be witnesses unto me…unto the ends of the earth.”


Abraham’s name is one to conjure with till now, a power for good over men as they review sacred history.  He is “the father of the faithful.”

Of his race Christ came whose reign shall never cease.

Heed God’s call, follow him and be a blessing unto others.
