God blesses the undeserving

Blessed #12 Blessed of God (Part 5)

Blessed Beyond Imagination series, part 12. In the Bible we read that God “justifies the ungodly“. How can that be? Today, we examine what He does this, looking at what the Bible says about:

  • All of us don’t deserve to be blessed, because of our sin, idolatry and rebellion against God. In fact, we deserve damnation and judgment.
  • There is only One — The Lord Jesus — who has the right to judge and condemn us. Yet He is in fact interceding for us.
  • Even though we don’t deserve to be blessed, every single person who is in Christ is richly blessed, because they have received the gift of Christ’s righteousness by faith.
  • What it means to be justified.
  • Texts: Romans 1:18, Ephesians 2:3-6, Psalm 32:1-2, Romans 4:5-7

Blessed #9: Blessed of God (Part 2)

Blessed Beyond Imagination. Sounds a bit “over the top” don’t you think? But God actually DOES bless like this, in an exceeding measure! This is what God DOES… because of WHO HE IS.

So WHO is blessed of God? And WHY are the blessed of God? In today’s episode:

  • God blesses us solely because He is good.
  • We begin to look at prime examples of people blessed of God, even though they did not deserve it. People like Abraham.
  • Then, there is the unusual pattern where we see God blessing the younger son, even though the firstborn son always deserved the richest blessing. Please like
    • Abel
    • Isaac
    • Jacob
    • More examples will follow in Part 10.
