The thing that marked the people of the Bible is that they had been with Jesus. It was not their degrees or disciplines, nor their positions or possessions. They certainly weren’t marked with a life of ease. Matthew 4:19-20 says people were amazed at the disciples because though they were unschooled, they had been with Jesus. The Old Testament records God being with Abraham and even the rascal, Isaac. God was with Joseph when his brothers sold him into Egypt and when Potiphar put him in prison under false accusations. To be blessed is to have God with us.
