Extra Scoop of Blessings Please

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)

The Christian Gaming Community has prayer meetings every Sunday and when I make prayer requests I often say “And an extra scoop of blessings” for that person. I know that as Christians that we are already blessed.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, Ephesians 1:3 (NRSV)

However I think that God smiles on us when we ask our Heavenly Father God Almighty to pour out His blessings for other Christians and people rather for ourselves.

38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38 (NIV)

Is it just me or does the above scripture say that when we ask to bless others we too will be blessed in return? In the Christian Gaming Community we say “God bless everyone” when we leave the Discord server. So we are asking God to bless all in the community before we leave for the night because everyone is important to us…and then we get blessed in return. God is great!!! God bless everyone…and an extra scoop of God’s blessings for all those that read this.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:21 (KJV)
