BITE: Everything IN Christ Jesus…

"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."
Ephesians 1:3 [ESV]

Today I am starting Ephesians. I of 3 books in the New Testament I have yet to do a deep study of. I will continue to read through Psalms but I am lacking a little meat to my daily meals.

These first several verses of Ephesians did not disappoint as Paul jumps right in to 1) What we have in Jesus and 2) that we have been chosen before the earth was created. I am focusing on number 1 today and will launch into number 2 over the next couple of days as there is so much there.

Every spiritual blessing: what jumped out at me about this was the totality of blessing (spiritually) that we have when we accept Jesus as our personal LORD and Savior. Not some, not all eventually, but everything now. These spiritual blessings are already secured when we believe. There is such freedom and hope unlocked when we embrace this truth.


Lately, I have been living a day-by-day life. Now, this is not bad within itself; Jesus calls us not to be anxious for tomorrow and that God’s grace is new every morning… but my outlook should be further than today and my hope should be in more than today. I need to transition my thinking in my personal ministry to be taking into consideration all the spiritual blessing God the father has given me IN the LORD Jesus Christ, I am realizing there is untapped potential in what I am capable of doing as far as impact for the Kingdom through what I have been give IN Christ. My prayer life must include more -> asking of the Lord to reveal how I can say yes to the Kingdom work He is preparing before me. In this context I have to be looking out further than today.
