How to Get Many Blessings From God



“And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.”

Acts 2:47


What do you want?


Abraham wanted something so badly from God that he got circumcised in his nineties! Abrahan also circumcised his entire family (not an easy task!). Circumcision is not casual but deliberate, gruesome, and painful. Circumcision costs something. Abraham wanted to inherit what God promised enough to go through severe pain to get it.


The apostle Paul said that God promised Abraham “the entire world” (Romans 4:13). For that reward, Abraham paid the high price of circumcision. Is that reward enough for you to offer a sacrifice? Would you pay a high price to inherit the world?


The old saying declares, “Time is money.” Therefore, we are equally rich. Nobody has more than twenty-four hours in a day or seven days in a week. What price in time are we willing to pay to inherit the world?

The book of Acts says that God was adding to the number of the church daily. In other words, many people were coming to faith. When we look at God’s promises to Abraham (Genesis 17), the phrase “many” fits well. God said to Abraham,


“I will multiply you exceedingly.”


“You will be the father of a multitude.”


“I will make you exceedingly fruitful.”


The word “many” can also describe the square footage of land God promised Abraham and the length of time God promised Abraham’s possession, aka “forever.”


Who wouldn’t sacrifice something for an inheritance like this? Believe it or not, there is one kind of person who will not pay the price for this inheritance: the person without faith. The person with zero confidence in God’s word. And the person who trusts themselves above all else.


For the rest of us, the question remains, “What does God want from me?” God wants your entire being. God wants you to surrender your life. God wants you to demonstrate this commitment with baptism. God wants you to do it now. And God wants to bless you with all the blessings of Heaven and earth. You will be fruitful and multiply; you will be happy, content, and whole—the God who made you knows how to satisfy you. Come, inherit the world He prepared for you and worship Him.
