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. Ephesians 1:3
If we were to consider this verse for a few minutes, it would blow us away. The second part of the verse seems like hyperbole, but it’s not.
God has blessed us.
What would those spiritual blessings be? Have you ever stopped to consider that?
- Peace that passes understanding comes to mind. There’s a lot of turmoil in this world and the peace of God in chaotic situations is certainly a spiritual blessing.
- Wisdom is also in short supply these days. God tells us all through Scripture to pray for wisdom. That’s certainly a spiritual blessing.
- A happy, contented life is surely a spiritual blessing because I’ve seen many people who are always on edge and are hungry for power and fame.
If you thought about it for a while, you could add to this list. A quick definition would be whatever the world can’t give us or take away from us.
Yes, you and I are blessed in the heavenly realms before we even get to heaven. Imagine what it will be like when we actually get there.
