The Blessedness of Salvation

By Mike Graziano

“The blessedness of the man unto whom God imputes righteousness apart from works” (Rom. 4:6, KJV).

Cometh this blessedness upon the circumcision only?” (Rom. 4:9, KJV) 

As Christians, blessedness has come upon each one of us when we repented and believed in Christ.

But it can be, experientially, lost for a time. “Where is then the blessedness you (once) spoke of?” (Gal. 4:15) 

God said to Adam in the garden: “Adam, where are you?”

Has God, through your conscience, ever asked you, “Where are you?” 

Has your conscience ever cried, “Where is the blessedness I once knew?”

Remember: Jesus didn’t save only to rescue us from the penalty of our sins, He came to save us “to the uttermost” (Heb. 7:25). To be saved “to the utter-most” is to enjoy the “blessed-ness” of salvation. 

Jesus saved us – to bring the full, sweeping, tidal wave of blessedness over our heads, again and again. Isaiah says: “O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! Then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness (blessedness) as the waves of the sea” (Isa. 48:18).

O the blessedness that has come upon us! As the perpetual crashing waves of the sea…over our heads.
