Blessed - Week 3

We are blessed so that we can be a blessing to others. What does that look like? Check this out from Dave Ferguson: B L E S S --- B- Begin with prayer. We want you to ask, ‘God how do you want me to bless the people in the places you’ve sent me to?’ L- Listen. Don’t talk, but listen to people, their struggles, their pains, in the places God sent you. E- Eat. You can’t just check this off. It’s not quick. You have to have a meal with people or a cup of coffee. It builds relationships. S- Serve. If you listen to people and you eat with people they will tell you how to love them and you’ll know how to serve them. S- Story. When the time is right, now we talk and we share the story of how Jesus changed our life.

Big Idea: We are blessed so we can bless others.

Text: Genesis 12:1-3

1The Lord said to Abram:

Go from your land,

your relatives,

and your father’s house

to the land that I will show you.

2I will make you into a great nation,

I will bless you,

I will make your name great,

and you will be a blessing.

3I will bless those who bless you,

I will curse anyone who treats you with contempt,

and all the peoples on earth

will be blessed through you.
