Do you want a home that is blessed?
Have you noticed that a lot of people bless all kinds of things? I’ve heard of: Blessing at a meal or event, Blessing of bikes (motorcycles)., Blessing of a pet, Blessing of a ship or boat and many more.
In reality, blessing something doesn’t bless it. As a Christian, we ask God to bless it.
What does blessing mean? To be blessed means to have ‘perfect happiness’. Wouldn’t that be nice for your family?
In Matthew 5 Jesus pronounces a blessing on people who have specific characteristics. Rather than asking God to bless someone, Jesus pronounced a blessing on people whose lives are ‘bless-able.’
This Sunday, May 10, I begin a sermon series called Bless This Home from Jesus’ Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12). I am going to apply these traits in Matthew 5 of a ‘bless-able’ person to your family. This week for Mothers Day, I will talk about “God Blesses the Humble Home.”
Pride is a family killer. It is like cancer and eats up the very possibility of love, contentment and peace. Pride sees that the problem is everyone else. Families are often killed by selfishness, ego, and pride. We need humility. For example:
1 – Humility focuses on others first. Humility is not thinking less of yourself – it is thinking of your self less.
2 – Humility handles unfair treatment peacefully. Humility seeks forgiveness and reconciliation, rather than anger and revenge.
2 – Humility depends on God’s grace. Humility is impossible to really cultivate in your life. Because when you recognize you are humble, you aren’t anymore. Humility is only through the grace of God in our life
I hope you’ll join me this Sunday morning on Facebook Live or YouTube Live as I share living a life of humility in your family. Invite your friends to watch and allow me to tell them about Jesus. In addition, we will have a Drive-in service in our parking lot for Mothers Day. All moms will receive a flower. The oldest mother and all first time moms will receive a gift card.
Join me this Sunday @ 9:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. online or 6:00 p.m. in our parking lot.
