3 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.

One thing that you will notice about Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is his continual use of the phrase “in Christ”. In this case it is referring to the spiritual blessing that we have in Christ.

We, as Christians, are truly blessed by our Father in heaven. It doesn’t matter what your circumstances are, you can trust in this blessing. It’s a blessing that you can’t use up and no one can steal it from you. You might not always see it, but it is real and secure and reserved for you in heaven. As a father blesses his children, so our Father in heaven has blessed us.

This blessing has already been given to us and will always be there for us. It is for now and eternity. It is our access to the heavenly realms. It is the authority we’ve been given through Christ to fight this good fight and tear down every stronghold that sets itself up against the knowledge of Christ (2Cor. 10:5).

It is a spiritual blessing. It is belonging; it is faith, hope, and love; it is eternal life; it is an inheritance stored up for us in heaven, and so much more. We’ve been given every spiritual blessing, not just one, all we need for life and godliness (2Pet. 1:3).

And it is all because of Christ. In Him we we have all we need. In Him we are blessed beyond measure. In Him we live and move and have our being. In Christ alone we are move than conquerors. In Christ we are one family. In Christ we have freedom and salvation and victory over death. Praise you Lord Jesus!

    Thank you father I can truly believe who I am IN CHRIST. I thank you for truly giving up the best you had for me! Soften my heart Lord so I can loosen my grip on anything I receive from you and pass it on to others in love and with a joyful heart. Your son gave so much to everyone here and was always joyful and loving . Give me strength and courage to be able to model who I truly am IN CHRIST.
