Read Ephesians 1

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Ephesians 1:3 NLT

Who has blessed me with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms? God the Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ. I can usually acknowledge that my blessings come from God. But this scripture makes me stop and ask, “Why?” “Why is God blessing me?” He is blessing me because I am one with His Son, Jesus Christ.

What does this really mean, and how can I apply this scripture to my everyday life? I can live like I know and believe that God has good things just for me. He doesn’t hold anything back – I just need to have faith to walk out what He has for me. And by staying connected to Jesus Christ, by pursuing a relationship with others, and by giving all praise to God for all of those blessings!!  Is it really that simple… Get Connected!

Wow, God, you held nothing back! Thank You for blessing us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms, so that I can live a blessed life. Help me to hold nothing back in living my life for you, Jesus, as I stay connected to you and to others. Amen
