BLESSED be the Shem of Yahweh FOREVER – 22

Subject: The Creator who is "Blessed Forever" Amen!

There are 2 places where Paul uses "blessed forever" in Romans. 

Today we will look at the first occurrence of "blessed forever" in Romans.

Romans 1:24- 25. "Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonouring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen."

1. This is a doxology. Doxo comes from the Greek word " δόξα" meaning 'glory'.

2. A doxology is a short praise glorifying God, often times ending with "Amen". We see this repeated pattern in the Old Testament where Psalmists and men of God would bless and glorify God at the end of their praises.

3. Who is "blessed forever" here in Romans 1:24-25? 

4. It is "the Creator" who is blessed forever.

5. Yahweh God is our Creator. He is the One worthy of our worship and praise, therefore we bless Him forever. Let us serve and worship our only Creator God Yahweh and not exchange the truth about God for a lie.

Yahweh God, our Creator, You are blessed forever! Amen.
