Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquties.
Acts 3:26 (KJV)
How comforting it is to know that God’s purpose for sending His Son into the world and raising Him from the dead was to bless us! And so let no one ever doubt that it is God’s desire for us that we be blessed in every area of our lives. God has willed that in Jesus we be set free from the bondage of inquity, and that we enter into faith-filled and victorious living. All of this has already been freely provided for us in and through the finished works of our Lord Jesus, and all that is left for us to do is to receive this precious gift by faith. So today, let us rejoice as we consider the enormous blessing that is upon our lives, and may we purpose in our hearts that we will take hold of this glorious victory that was won for us two thousand years ago.
