This is the start of an article I wrote on the “Satisfaction Through Christ” blog on November 16, 2016. I am sharing the articles I wrote there with my blog readers. To finish reading this article, click the link at the bottom of this post.
What blessings do we have in Christ? There are certain blessings that all regenerate believers have in the spiritual realm. I’m part of a Facebook group that was just discussing how misused or misunderstood the words “anointed,” “favor,” and “blessings” are today. I think so many times we tend to think of blessings as immediate, physical, carnal, or temporal (in the here and now, which actually is temporary). But God’s idea of blessings are spiritual. We are rich and blessed precisely because of the spiritual blessings in Ephesians 1:3-14.
My husband and I are part of a small group at our church, where we are studying the book of Ephesians. I also started a women’s ministry on Facebook called, Tea & Scripture, where we are studying the Word. Since our small group is doing Ephesians, I decided to start with Ephesians with the ladies’ group, too. I had to share these spiritual blessings here as well!
