Many people talk about the good things that happen in their lives as a blessing. Our kids succeed. We get a bonus or a promotion. We’re having a great day. Whatever good thing it is, we call it a blessing.
The Bible’s view of blessing, however, is different. It’s not in things, experiences, or even people. It’s only about Jesus. His presence in your life through the Word and Sacraments brings you blessing.
Which lasts forever? Which brings eternal life? Which will never fail you? Only Christ stays with you no matter what.
