    HOW TO STAND TO BE BLESSED

This phrase is often used lightly and we don’t really fully comprehend what giving a blessing means. Many of us us, as children of God, have come to understand that we are blessed because the blessing of Abraham has come upon the gentiles (non-Jews) through faith in Jesus Christ.
