B.B.B.

All of us no doubt hear the question, “How are you?” several times each day.  Instead of responding with the expected “Fine” or “Good,’ what if more people replied, B. B. B.?  That has nothing to do with the Better Business Bureau, rather it is an acronym for Blessed Beyond Belief.  I’m going to try using it as a conversation starter and a declaration of my faith.

Surely all Christians can truthfully claim the many blessings God pours out on us continually. We can access the very throne room of the Godhead with confidence (Heb 4:16) any time and any place without ritual, preamble or fanfare.  Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit intercede and advocate for us in our prayers (1 Jo 2:1) (Heb 4:15-16) (Rom 8:34) (Rom 8:14-16) (Rom 8:26-27) (Heb 7:24-25).  All these verses tell us how blessed we are to be children of God and fellow heirs with Christ Jesus (Rom 8:14-17).  Unbelievable!

All have sinned (Rom 3:23) and continue to sin (1 Jo 1:8-10) but when one becomes an immersed believer in Christ our sins are washed away (Acts 22:16) (Heb 8:12) (Acts 2:38). Only the one who was without sin is able to sympathize with our weaknesses having been tempted in every way just as we are (Heb 4:14-16).  What a blessing!

Our material blessings are almost numberless. In our country we enjoy freedom, affluence, good health care and a myriad of other things.  We are virtually without persecution when teaching our beliefs.  Incredible!

We can assemble with our brethren any time to glorify God (Heb 10:25) and to enjoy the love, concern and forgiveness of our fellow Christians (Gal 5:13) (Rom 13:8) (Col 3:13).  My hope is that some of you will join me in the B. B. B. campaign and perhaps it will catch on and be a real motivation for our friends to think deeper about their own soul.  That would be a blessing beyond belief.
