Receive a Blessing

February 2, 2010

The LORD said to Moses, “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
” ‘ “The LORD bless you
and keep you;
the LORD make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace.” ‘
“So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”
Numbers 6:22-27

We will begin our next message series this Sunday. We will be looking at blessing. The above is the Priestly blessing extended to Israel.

The gospels record that people brought children to Jesus so that he could place his hands upon them. They were coming to Jesus seeking a blessing. Who better to seek blessing from than our High Priest in the order of Melchizedek?

Read the text again and remember, this blessing is for you. God has grafted you into His kingdom.

From my favorite U2 album. Johnny Cash does sound better but this is nice.
