Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquties.
Acts 3:26 (KJV)
God has sent Jesus into the world to bless us. To be blessed means to be empowered to prosper. And so in Christ we have been empowered to prosper in every arena of life and we have been set free from anything that may have kept us in bondage. We have been fully equipped to enter into faith-filled and victorious living.
