The Greatest Blessing

What does man seek in life? First, man seeks blessing! Whenever there is blessing, there is a sense of having everything.

When the word blessing is mentioned, none would say, “I do not need it”. Everyone hopes to obtain blessings. That is why man always seeks after them. What kind of blessings then would be asked for? Oh, there are plenty! Some would ask for good grades in school, so that it would be easier to climb the corporate ladder in the future, earn for him a reputation in the society and enjoy the wealth of success. Others would seek for marital bliss with many children and even grandchildren, that one may live “till death do us part”. The majority would seek after prosperity and continuous supply of abundance. Whatever the blessings may be, man would just hope for blessings upon blessings!

However, sad to say, the blessings that man seeks after are temporal and not dependable. The price to pay for these blessings is high because there is nothing free on this earth. Moreover, man hopes to have earthly blessings but not everyone will get what he wants. Even when man has all these blessings, one day man will have to die, so will the blessings go with him.

Actually, there is a great blessing in this universe that man needs. It has been specially prepared for him and should be sought out by man. There is no need to pay anything for this blessing and yet man can freely have it because it is God’s grace, which is everlasting life. And this blessing is not short-lived, but exists through eternity.

Man once possessed this blessing as part of God’s given right to man. Man has the right to enjoy everlasting life by partaking of the tree of life. However, under the deception of the serpent, our ancestors were deceived, fell into sin and had lightly given up this right. Thus the whole of mankind is under the bondage of sin, under curse, and has lost that blessing that man had – everlasting life. Therefore God wants to recover what was lost. In order to do that, God sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ into the world, to seek out the lost sinners and by believing in Him, man can have everlasting life. The Lord Jesus said: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life …” (John 5:24) John, the disciple of the Lord Jesus proclaimed: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” and he also said: “… that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”(1 John 5:11)

The greatest blessing is to accept the Lord Jesus as your Saviour and have everlasting life. We hope you are willing to come and seek and also obtain this great blessing.
