“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:3-5 NLT
May we recognize that we are blessed...loved...chosen...adopted...all through having been brought to God through Jesus Christ.
Blessed beyond measure - “You will experience all these blessings if you obey the LORD your God: Your towns and your fields will be blessed. Your children and your crops will be blessed. The offspring of your herds and flocks will be blessed. Your fruit baskets and breadboards will be blessed. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you will be blessed.” Deuteronomy 28:2-6 NLT
Loved with an unfailing love - “For his unfailing love for us is powerful; the LORD’s faithfulness endures forever. Praise the LORD!” Psalms 117:2 NLT
You are a chosen treasure - “For you are a holy people, who belong to the LORD your God. Of all the people on earth, the LORD your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.” Deuteronomy 7:6 NLT
An adopted heir - “So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory..." Romans 8:15-17 NLT
Because we have been brought to God the Father through His Son Jesus Christ, we are promised all of this and even more.
Embrace your life in Christ.
