Deuteronomy 28:1-2 NIV 2011

If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God.

Prior to entering the Promised Land, Moses reminded God’s people to keep following all of His commands. They would prosper and be blessed by God as His righteous example. Deuteronomy 28:3, “You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.” Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.” Psalm 114:5, “Blessed is the people of whom this is true; blessed is the people whose God is the Lord.” The Lord blesses those that choose to follow Him.

Is it money, power or fame that shows us we are blessed? My answer is a resounding, “No!” But I would hazard to say that’s not the answer of many today. The day Jesus Christ became Lord of my life, I was blessed beyond all measure. I know what my eternal address will be. I know where those who’ve gone before me that experienced that same moment will be. Following Christ came with a charge: share the path to salvation for the unsaved. We’re all blessed by choosing to follow Him.

Where is He leading us to share the Truth?

Together we’re blessed daily,

S
