thought for the day

Eph 1

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.

For he choose us in him before creation/In love he predestained us

These phrases show that God’s intentions toward us were of His own doing before we showed up. He loved us from the very beginning. These blessings in Christ bestowed on us are a gift freely given, not something we have earned, or are a right because of certain holy habits we made establish. We have, simply because God loves us, every spiritual blessing in Christ already. Delight in your faith, delight in all that God has given you above and beyond the circumstances you find yourself in. You may feel the glass is empty, you still have every spiritual blessing in Christ. You may be enjoying an overflowing glass of good tidings and joy, regardless, you have every spiritual blessing and that would not change even if your glass stopped overflowing.

So today let us gather with the family of God wherever we are and give thanks for all spiritual blessings in Christ we have been given from the very beginning.
