Blessed To Be A Vessel For Spreading Blessings

By: Peter Kahenya

Here's a summary of the sermon

The sermon focuses on the concept of blessings and how believers can become vessels for spreading those blessings to others.

The Speaker references Genesis 12:1-3, where God instructs Abram to leave his country and promises to bless him and make him a blessing to all the families of the earth.

He delves into the meaning of blessings, describing them as special favours, mercy, or unmerited gifts bestowed by God. He emphasizes that believers should acknowledge and appreciate the blessings in their lives, even in the midst of challenges and difficult circumstances.

The sermon highlights various blessings, such as life, God's love, family, salvation, hope, faith, friendships, job, material possessions, and good health. The speaker encourages the congregation to reflect on their own blessings and express gratitude to God for them.

The speaker then explores how believers can be vessels for spreading blessings. He draws insights from his experience as a deacon, sharing lessons he has learned. The first way to spread blessings is through prayer. He emphasizes the importance of interceding for others, mentioning that prayers have the power to move mountains and protect those we pray for.

The second way to be a blessing is by meeting the needs of others through giving. Peter notes that giving goes beyond material possessions and includes giving one's time and prayers. He highlights the joy that comes from giving and encourages the congregation to remember that joy is derived from God's presence in their lives, the presence of others, and their own willingness to be a blessing.

The sermon also emphasizes the significance of encouragement. Peter acknowledges the impact of words of encouragement in his own life and encourages the congregation to uplift and strengthen others through kind and comforting words.

Lastly, Peter emphasizes the importance of thoughtfulness. Being intentional about thinking of others and praying for them leads to actions that benefit them. He emphasizes the need to go beyond oneself and consider the interests and well-being of others.
