Jesus is God’s Blessing by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Jesus is God's Blessing by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Unto you first God, having raised up his
Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in
turning away every one of you from his
iniquities (Acts 3:26).

T
he Lord Jesus came as a blessing to the
world, to save men and bring them into
fellowship with Himself, but the people of the
world didn’t accept Him. Even the Jews, through whom
He came, didn’t accept Him, because He came as a
man. He wasn’t what they expected; they weren’t
expecting someone that looked as ordinary as
themselves. But Jesus is by no means ordinary; He’s
Himself God. Be that as it may, He didn’t come to the
world as God.

Philippians 2:6-8 says, “Who, being in the form
of God…made himself of no reputation, and took upon
him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness
of men. And being found in fashion as a man, he
humbled himself, and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross.” They expected a ruler, but
because they were spiritually blind, they didn’t realise
that the one who walked amongst them was the ruler
of heaven and earth; the Monarch of the universe. They
expected a Messiah, and He was the Messiah.

Jesus is all that the Jews and the world were
looking for and more, packaged in one divine
personality, but they didn’t recognise Him. He wasn’t
packaged the way they expected, so they killed Him.
The Bible says, “He came unto his own, and his own received him not” (John 1:11). But thanks be unto God!
The ensuing verse 12 says, “But as many as received
him, to them gave he power to become the sons of
God, even to them that believe on his name.”

If you’ve never been born again, it means you’ve
not received Him; you’ve not accepted God’s blessing.
Jesus is all the blessings of heaven personified; to have
Him is to have everything. It makes no difference what
you’ve been searching for in life; what you’ve been
in need of; receive Jesus and your search, thirst, and
pursuit of happiness, will be over. He’s the one-stop
shop for everything divine; everything sublime;
everything transcendent that you could ever need. He’s
your life, your peace, your salvation, your prosperity,
your wisdom, your righteousness, and your everything!
He’s God’s blessing to you! Hallelujah!

CONFESSION
Blessed Jesus, you’re the lover of my soul, and the
personality of my deepest affection; you mean more
than the world to me. I acknowledge you as God’s
ultimate blessing to me, and I walk in the light of all
that I am in, and to you. Amen.
