Speaking or writing blessings is vital to our relationship in Christ Jesus with God and one another Blessing conveys God’s love and our love, God’s grace and our grace, God’s peace and our peace.
Jesus laid His hands on children and blessed them.
Mark 10:13 They were bringing to him little children, that he should touch them, but the disciples rebuked those who were bringing them. 14 But when Yeshua saw it, he was moved with indignation, and said to them, “Allow the little children to come to me! Don’t forbid them, for God’s Kingdom belongs to such as these. 15 Most certainly I tell you, whoever will not receive God’s Kingdom like a little child, he will in no way enter into it.” 16 He took them in his arms, and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
Jesus’ tender touch conveyed His love. The blessings Jesus spoke to the little children were surely short, sweet, on the mark and enduring.
Jesus’ apostles learned a lot about blessing that day. Paul might not have been there, but he sure knew how to bless. We can learn to speak forth blessings from the words he was inspired to write. Here are a few:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah. Romans 1:7b
