Blessing

Read Ephesians 1.3-14

“Praise be to the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ ..” (Eph.1.3)

God withholds no good thing from His people (see Psalm 84.11), but in Jesus Christ His Son He has granted believers every spiritual blessing: you couldn’t ask for more and you couldn’t wish for more! You are rich beyond measure!

What are the blessings believers have which are catalogued here by Paul in what (in the original) is one lengthy sentence (vv.3-14)?

To what end, according to what Paul writes here, has God thus blessed you in Christ?

Prayer: I will extol You at all times, O Lord: Your praise will always be on my lips, for blessed indeed are those who take refuge in You – they lack nothing (Psalm 34)
