Living as a Blessing to others – Eureka Bliss

Living as a Blessing to others

True Christians are blessing to others – in family, community, and church, to others! But are you someone’s blessings? Here are some wonderful ways that you will become a blessing to others:

  1. Set as living example of obedience to God’s will

Obedience to God’s laws directed in the Bible promotes blessings (Deu. 28). Abraham’s descendants are blessed for his enthusiastic obedience to God’s voice and commandments (read Gen. 12:1-3).

GENESIS 12:1-3 (ESV)

1Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

God blessed Abraham so that he in return can become a blessing to all people on the earth. By becoming a living example of obedience to God’s will His divine laws, statutes, should be manifested in our ways of thinking, speaking, and acting. As true Christ disciples, we should not react like unbeliever Gentiles or pagan skeptics. We are commanded even to love our enemy and not revile them (read 1 Peter 3:9)

1 PETER 3:9 (GNT)

9Do not pay back evil with evil or cursing with cursing; instead, pay back with a blessing, because a blessing is what God promised to give you when he called you.

See also 1 Thessalonians 5:15 where Apostle Paul writes not to pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. Jesus Christ taught us to even love our enemy – a matter to live on as true Christ disciples.

  1. Pray for others

Prayer is our spiritual lifeblood; hence we must pray without ceasing (1 Thes. 5:17; Rom. 12:12; Luke 18:1). God inspired Apostle Paul who encouraged everyone to pray for all people (read 1 Timothy 2:1-4).

1 TIMOTHY 2:1-4 (ESV)

1First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Truly, when we pray to others and God hears our prayers, we become someone’s blessing. The prayer of righteous man is powerful and effective (James 5:15-16). God the Father and Jesus Christ will always answer our prayers if we have faith (Mat. 21:22). We have confidence that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us (1 John 5:14-15)

  1. Encourage and sympathize with others

Apostle Paul told Christians to bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ (Gal. 6:2.). We must encourage everyone (1 Thess. 5:11). Strong believers must encourage the weak, and please them in all possible ways (read Rom.15:1-5)

ROMANS 15:1-5 (ESV)

1We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” 4For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. 5May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus.

  1. Give/share the needy

Doing good and sharing with others are sacrifices pleasing to God (Heb. 13:16). Hence we should contribute to the needy and seek to show hospitality (Rom. 12:13). God loves and blesses a cheerful giver (read 2 Corinthians 9:6-8).

 

2 CORINTHIANS 9:6-8 (ESV)

6The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

Let’s read also Proverbs 11:24-25 where the wise manifest that a generous person will be made rich since whoever gives to others will get richer. If you are a person who gives freely, you become more blessed.

PROVERBS 11:24-25 (ESV)

24“One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. 25Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.

  1. Volunteer for good works

God equipped everyone with various talents and skills to maintain quality lives on earth. God placed human being on earth to beautify the earth as its one responsibility. The world desperately need quality, humble and sustainable volunteers who have same interest concerned with each other. (read Phil. 2:1-4)

PHILIPPIANS 2:1-4 (GW)

1So then, as Christians, do you have any encouragement? Do you have any comfort from love? Do you have any spiritual relationships? Do you have any sympathy and compassion? 2Then fill me with joy by having the same attitude and the same love. Living in harmony and keeping one purpose in mind. 3Don’t act out of selfish ambition or be conceited. Instead humbly think of others as being better than yourselves. 4Don’t be concerned only about your own interests, but also be concerned about the interests of others.

FRIENDS, there are many amazing ways you can do for other people that they become blessed because of you. Becoming a BLESSING to others is our Christian responsibility.

MORE THAN ENOUGH

If I were to tear you away from your skills, your job, your fame, your relationships, your very sense of identity. . .
What would be left of you?

You see, through all and in all, Jesus is more than enough for us.
With Him, everything else serves a purpose; they have meaning. Without Him, we’re a misery waiting to happen.
