We are Christians, and without a doubt Christ is the true meaning of blessing. How blessed are we that He chose to share Himself as a blessing with us, the forgiven and children of God. I still don’t know what I am to write but I am hoping that by the end of this letter, to us, I would at least have something regarding blessing or being blessed.
They call it being in the favour of the Lord and that is true I won’t refuse. Blessing, as I say it in my heart, it sounds like heavenly language, like heavenly speech, perhaps it is because the one who wears it lives there, He lives in heaven. And not long ago I have read about how That Man, who lives in heaven, wants to empty himself outside of heaven and to come live within us, so that we too can live within Him. Who am I kidding, He already does live within us and we do already live within Him. (He is not YHWH for will do and will not. He is YHWH for I AM BLESS you) I guess the blessing within all of this will be for us to fully realise this magnitude of truth invisible to the physical eye and clearly visible to that eye which is of the Spirit. His Spirit and not ours. (We were bought with a price and no longer belong to ourselves). His Eyes, not ours, He, Himself, and not us in ourselves, we are no more. You see, it takes Christ to recognise blessing, it takes his eyes to see it, His Spirit to fully comprehend it. I still do not know what I am talking about, but I don’t have to worry about that because I know and am certain that the Christ within all of us does know what I am talking about, Him and not us, Him in us and not us within ourselves.
The blessing which is Christ is such that we do not have to do anything to attain it, blessing is freely given. We just have to believe. I take it that to believe is a verb, a doing word, an act of doing something, but how do we believe really? Can we believe by ourselves? I seriously at this moment in time do not see how I could believe by myself. Perhaps that is a blessing in disguise because it makes me to become aware that even in our believing, it takes Jesus Christ and not us, that in anything that pertains to Christ Jesus, it takes Christ to realise Christ. We believe because of Christ Jesus and by Christ Jesus. Again I might not be making sense, but I am taught that it is the foolish things that make more sense than the wise things that do not.
So yes, it takes a blessing to be blessed and to bless; it takes Christ Jesus our Lord, the blessing of God, that blessing which is God, to bless that which is to be blessed, which is the Christ within us. In other words when I bless you I am really blessing Christ and when you bless me you are really blessing Christ for it is no longer us who live but Christ Jesus who lives in us, To Christ then, and by Christ, do I bless each and everyone one of you sisters and brothers, In Jesus Christ’s Name, in his fullness, I bless you.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)
