As I travel more this month for speaking engagements (keep me in your prayers!!), I remember this little but powerful comment from Paul in Romans 15:29. He writes, “I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.”
Doesn’t it seem so lovely to imagine yourself arriving with the full measure of Christ’s blessings? Consider entering a room with this attitude that you want to bring people into all the fullness of Christ’s blessings.
What did Paul bring when he arrived places? Well, for starters, he brought the indwelling Christ; he brought Jesus, the Living Word. He also brought instruction from written word. He brought encouragement. He brought truth. He brought love. He brought a consecrated life made fully available to Jesus to use as He wished (Galatians 2:20). He brought joyful words, truthful words, and hopeful words.
Yes, he entered a new place with hope.
I pray that I go and speak and arrive in the “full measure of the blessing of Christ.” And you? When you enter your home or work environment, I pray this for you as well.
