“Blessed with All Spiritual Blessings!”

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”  ~ Ephesians 1:3

“God’s love to us is infinite. He considers nothing too good or too great to confer upon His redeemed children. Having chosen us in His Son, that we may be holy and blameless before Him in love, He blessed us with all spiritual blessings. He gave us . . . grace in Jesus, grace before the foundation of the world, grace for all time, grace for all trials, grace to be given to us as our circumstances may require.”

“In going to the throne of grace, therefore we simply go to receive what our heavenly Father has stored up in Jesus for us. What sweet encouragement is this! Well may the apostle say, ‘Therefore let us come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.’”
