Does God bless Non-Christians?
You have heard fellow Christians, especially preachers; tell you that God only blesses those who keep His Commandments. But that is a myth. God do not withhold blessing from His Children. So whether you are a Christian or not, we are all God’s children. Furthermore, God is impartial; He does not distribute blessings like humans do. For example, when the rain falls, it does not fall on one man’s land. Neither does the sun shines on one man’s house.
I take my cue from Jesus. He never turned anyone away. Matthew 9:18-26 and Mark 5:21-43 solidify this fact. Both Mark and Matthew narrated the same gripping story. Both of which dispels the myth mentioned above.
The story tells us about a prominent Jewish leader named Jairus whose young daughter was ill. Now, it is important to note, Jairus did not subscribe to Jesus’s teachings. He was a member of a religious sect that opposed everything Jesus did. One could go further and say Jairus was a member of the group that plotted to kill Jesus.
But when everything Jairus tried to get his daughter well failed, Jairus came to Jesus for help. While making his way through a large crowd that had come to see Jesus as well. He received further disturbing news. His daughter was dead. The Bible says Jairus fell at Jesus’ feet and worshiped Him. Then he said, “My daughter has just died, but even though she is dead if you come and lay Your hand on her she will live.”
Without putting him on the mercy seat, Jesus granted Jairus’s wish. And his daughter lived.
Still, like the woman with the issue of blood, Jairus had faith that could move a mountain. That is something many of us lack. Thus, if we wish to have showers of blessing in our lives we need to work on our faith.
