How can God bring His blessings to your family? This passage from the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament tells us how. The words are being spoken by the apostle Peter and the part in all caps is his quoting of Genesis 12:3:
“It is you who are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with your fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘AND IN YOUR SEED ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED.’ For you first, God raised up His Servant and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways.”
– Acts 3:25-26
You see how it works? God blesses us by turning us from our wicked ways and He is able to do this as we trust and obey the One who was raised from the dead: Jesus.
Jesus is the “seed” that was planted in the earth through death and who sprang up to become the Savior of the world – starting with your family.
To maintain His blessing on your family, maintain your faithfulness to Him.
