Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of March 8, 2009
As one of the on-going ministries of Chi Rho
Press, here is a selection from our book of daily
devotions, "Living as the Beloved: One Day at a
Time," by the Rev. Dr. Sandra Bochonok.
Please read the Scripture passage and Dr. Bochonok's
meditation. We hope you will be blessed.
Thank you for forwarding this to your friends.
The last page in the Bible
"There shall no more be anything accursed, but the
throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and
his servants shall worship him."
The Bible concludes with the promise from God that
"no longer will there be any curse." Someday there
will be a new heaven and a new earth. There will
be no more death, or mourning, or crying, or pain.
All the broken, sin-twisted creation will have
passed away (Revelations 21:4).
It seems to me that blessing is good and a gift
from God. Blessing, not cursing, is spiritually
empowering for healing and wholeness. The
origin and source of all blessings comes from
God. Someday, there will be a new heaven and
new earth full of blessing. There will be no
destructive and despairing effects of sin and
death. It will be heaven on earth. Never,
ever again will the damaging power of any curse
harm you and those you love.
God, help me live my blessing now! Remind me
to keep looking up. Amen.
Grace and peace,
Chi Rho Press
