You Were Made For Blessing

Matthew 5:3-5, 2 Corinthians 5:17

Bottle time is over. Grow up time has come!

“So God created…male and female…God blessed them.” – Genesis 1:27

“Our Father in heaven…Your kingdom come…” – Matthew 6:9-10

“If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

“We…are being transformed into his likeness with ever increasing glory.” – 2 Corinthians 3:18

“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:2

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” – Matthew 5:3-5

See your need. Feel your need. Yield your need to God.

“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.” – Psalm 51:1-2

Transgression = rebellious acts of violation 
Iniquity = crooked, twisted 
Sin = to miss the mark, fall short

“Blessed are the poor in spirit…” – rationally
“Blessed are those who mourn…” – emotionally
“Blessed are the meek…” – volitionally

“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret.” – 2 Corinthians 7:10

I rationally see my need – poor in spirit
I emotionally feel my need – mourn
I volitionally yield my need to God – meek

Bottle time is over. Grow up time has come!
