Blessing the World
GENESIS 12:2-3 NIV “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed THROUGH you.”
2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4 NIV Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4 MSG All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.
PSALM 46:1 NKJV God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 CORINTHIANS 1:4 MSG … he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.
We are a RIVER not a RESERVOIR.
MATTHEW 5:14-16 NIV “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the
same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Blessing the world isn’t always about doing something extraordinary; it’s about doing something.
2 CORINTHIANS 8:12-15 TPT For if the intention and desire are there, the size of the gift doesn’t matter. Your gift is fully acceptable to God according to what you have, not what you don’t have. I’m not saying this in order to ease someone else’s load by overloading you, but as a matter of fair balance. Your surplus could meet their need, and their abundance may one day meet your need. This equal sharing of abundance will mean a fair balance. As it is written: The one who gathered much didn’t have too much, and the one who gathered little didn’t have too little.
Do for one what you wish you could do for all.
