But there is a Condition
Did you know that when we become a part of the Body of Christ, that we become a part of God’s Family, and in becoming a part of His Family we inherit the blessing of God? The condition is you must be born again!
When we are born again the blessing is available to us through the lineage of Abraham, through whom all nations of the earth have an opportunity to be blessed. It is a part of God‘s promise to His people. It was in the mind of God for Believers to procreate and establish a godly heritage in the earth. Therefore God’s desire has always been to bless His Family – spirit, soul and body. It is His inherent desire that we teach His precepts to our children, their children and their children’s children for many generations. When we instill the Word of God in our children, we are teaching them to deliver the same expectation of the blessing to their children!
There are many blessings to be enjoyed in being part of the family of God. However, we must first be diligent to speak and walk in the uncompromising, never changing Word of God before our children so they can have the blessings and the promises God has made available to His Family. Remember that what you allow your children to see, they will be. Especially when children are young, most lessons are learned through example, not instruction. Children mimic their parents and those who care for them and are more likely to do what you do, not what you say.
Remind your children of their lineage, their heritage and moreover the blessings that are available to them as they practice walking in the light of God’s word…More importantly, be the living epistle – the walking, talking word of God – before them.
Now the Lord had said unto Abram:
”I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
Genesis 12:2-3 KJV
