Spiritual blessings in Christ

October 31st, 2011

As believers and disciples we have all the benefits of knowing God. We are blessed with every spiritual blessing as it tells us in Ephesians 1:3-14.

We see that we are chosen for salvation, adopted as His children, completely forgiven and set free from sin, we have spiritual insight in His will, we have the gifts of the Spirit, fruit of the Spirit, power to do God’s will, the hope of eternal life.

If we look at the above text we see some of these things mentioned…

  • v3 – we are blessed in Christ
  • v4 – chosen by Him
  • v5 – adopted by Him
  • v6 – given grace in Christ
  • v7 – redeemed and forgiven
  • v8 – wisdom and understanding
  • v9 – knowledge of His will
  • v11 – chosen and predestined
  • v12 – hope in Christ
  • v13 – marked with the seal of the Holy Spirit
  • v14 – guaranteed our inheritance in Christ

 

These are things we have in Christ. All the blessings of knowing Him personally. These are things that all religions want and strive for, but as believers we are freely given them in Christ.

Knowing and walking with Jesus is the most amazing experience. It allows us to live our best life and the life God intended for us all before the creation of the world.

God Bless,
