Because Christ died on the cross and rose from the dead, I have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. This truth is stated in Ephesians 1:3 “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,”
What does that really mean for you and me? What spiritual blessings come from heavenly places because of Christ and His work on the cross? Here are a few: I am saved for eternity, I will live with Him in heaven forever, I am considered part of God’s family and Christ called believers His brothers and sisters. God has a plan for my life and has good things and a future for me, Jeremiah 29:11. I am forgiven, I am considered holy and blameless through Jesus’ work on the cross, I will live after death and rise to be with Him, I am beloved of God and God has given me His Holy Spirit to live within me.
As you meditate today try to lengthen this list of spiritual blessings you have because of Christ. We are truly blessed as children of God!
