January 5

Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing….”

Genesis 12:1-2 ESV

We just read about the call of the disciples. It wasn’t a new thing. God has always been calling to people to follow Him. It’s the same call. Follow me. You don’t know where I am taking you, but go in faith. Believe in the future promise of blessing. I will make you into a great nation and glorify Myself through you, giving you My blessing so that you will be a blessing to others.

We’re to make disciples of all nations. We’re all participating in the Great Commission if we have been baptized by the Holy Spirit, giving us power to be His witnesses. We’re building His kingdom. Each blessing we receive from God we use to bless others, whether gifting, love, knowledge, money, or anything else, because it’s all a gift from Him!
