Changing culture through the influence of Jesus comes through dispensing the blessing of God on people and their situations
Here are some steps that we’ve discussed more fully in recent messages at New Horizon.
First you must see that you are blessed. You are blessed with Abraham the believer.
Until you see that you are blessed with Jesus who has received all the inheritance of Father, that you share that inheritance with Him, that all your needs are met in Him, you will subconsciously withhold giving away blessing. You will see that you need blessed, but not that you have the power to bless. You have to see that you are blessed, regardless of what your circumstances look like, and your faith will bring change to your circumstances. Here are some scripture to help us remember we are blessed.
Galatians 3:8-9 The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU.”So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer.
Romans 5:17 For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world…
2 Peter 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.
