Dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord had given for you today is from the book of Psalm 115:13, “The Lord will bless them that fear the Lord both small and great”. Our Lord wants to bless you and to attain this blessing we should be blameless before God. Joshua 3:5 says, “Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you”.
In the most basic meaning of the word “holy,” “sanctify” “means to separate from the world and to consecrate or dedicate to God. So, if something is sanctified or holy, it is separated from the world and dedicated to God. 1 Thessalonians 4:7 says “For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.”God expects sanctification in our lives. He wants a change in us.
In the Bible we read about Abraham. God appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be blameless. I will establish My covenant between Me and you.”
God changed the name of Abram and called him Abraham. God also changed the name of Abraham’s wife from Sarai to Sarah. He not only changed their names but also He expected a change in their character.
Abraham was upright before God. God blessed Abraham and Sarah to be the father and mother of nations. God blessed Abraham with a son for which he was longing for until he was hundred years of age. He was rewarded. God blessed Abraham. He will bless you also if you walk blameless before god.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord help my children to be blameless before God. Sanctify them Lord. Remove their old nature and revive them. Help them to walk in the ways of God. Whoever is born of God, does not sin. Therefore, keep them away from all sin and earthly desire. Remove all their weakness that prevents them from being Godly. Father, may they glorify your holy name. In Jesus name we pray,
