Who is a blessed man? The word “blessed”, is used in so many contexts, much so that it has lost its true meaning. Today we will discover through the word, the meaning of a blessed man.
1. A blessed man is liked/loved by God (Psalm 1: 1) – How well God must like you , you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.
2. A blessed man is fruitful in every area of his life (Gen 1:22)- God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Ocean! Birds, reproduce on Earth.
3. A blessed man is a man whose sins are forgiven, a happy man (Psalm 32:1-2, Rom 4:7) –1 Happy are those whose sins are forgiven, whose wrongs are pardoned. 2 Happy is the one whom the Lord does not accuse of doing wrong and who is free from all deceit. For ones sins to be forgiven, he/she must accept Jesus as lord and personal savior; thus this term doe not apply to sinners/unbelievers. To be Rich is not blessed, to prosper is also not blessed.
