Last night I was reading Ephesians 1 1-15, It starts… Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places….
It is an amazing thought that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing. Were not second class citizens to God but becuase of Jesus I stand with him and share everything that is his!
What are these spiritual blessings? Well looking at the rest of the passage, In Christ we are;
In Christ he chose us in him before the foundation of the world
In Christ we are holy and blameless before him
In Christ we are adopted as sons not slaves
In Christ we are blessed
In Christ we have redemption
In Christ we have forgiveness
In Christ we have wisdom and insight
In Christ we have an inheritance
In Christ we have hope
In Christ we have salvation
In Christ we have the Holy Spirit.
and he does all of this… To the praise of his glorious grace!
Someone said to me that if you were standing in the field at night you need to look up to the stars to see the wonder and the beauty but if we look down we only see the mud on our welly boots. It is the same when we look to Jesus as he has given us so much. Good times.
