Be Blessed and Be a Blessing by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/27/11

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When God blesses us, He doesn’t intend for us to just keep those blessings to ourselves. He gives to us so we can be channels of blessing to others. I’ve often said to young people as we were parting ways, “Now remember, be blessed and be a blessing.”

That’s similar to what God said to Abram in Genesis chapter 12. After calling him to a new land, God said, “I will make you a great nation. I will bless you, and you shall be a blessing.”

Ultimately, we have been greatly blessed by Abram, since God used the nation that he birthed to usher in the Messiah.

How has God blessed you? Has he given you food? A job? A home? Freedom to worship? Freedom from sin? How can you share those things with others and become a channel for God’s blessing?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
