Exulting in Our Blessedness

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)

Paul underscores 5 truths regarding the Christian’s blessedness…

I. THE SOURCE OF OUR BLESSEDNESS

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…”

II. THE SPHERE OF OUR BLESSEDNESS

“…who has blessed us in Christ…”

III. THE EXTENT AND NATURE OF OUR BLESSEDNESS

“…with every…” (this speaks to the extent of our blessedness…we lack nothing!)

“…spiritual blessing…” (the nature of our blessedness is spiritual, though one day we’ll know this blessedness in the physical realm with new bodies, in a new earth, etc.)

IV: THE LOCATION OF OUR BLESSEDNESS

“…in the heavenly places…” (the unseen spiritual realm)
