I will bless you that you may be a blessing

The greatest heretical threat to Christian faith arises when we more emphasise the first half of God’s call to Abraham (“I will bless you”), than the second half (“I will make you a blessing to all those around you”). Both parts must be equally affirmed in the same breath. Anything less is neither orthodox nor reflective of a grace-driven faith. – Leslie Newbigin
