Blessings In Christ – July 22, 2016

Hebrews 12:28, Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, 29for our God is a consuming fire.

One thing that I have noticed in the church, myself included, is that we as a body don’t marvel at what the Lord does in our lives. Rather, we find excitement from a good movie, a funny post on Facebook, or something new on Pokémon Go (which these aren’t necessarily bad things). Take a moment to think about the blessings you have in Christ; you are alive and adored by God (Ephesians 2), and it’s through that love that you are made a new creation.  I encourage you to rejoice in this fact and let it ultimately be the driving force in your life.

In Hebrews 12:28 it says, “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” You are insanely blessed, live with the excitement and adoration for the Lord because of what is written in His word as well as what He has blessed you with personally.
