Preparing For Worship – August 31, 2014

slideInHimThis week in Ephesians, we will be studying chapter 1, verses 3-4.

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, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love

What a powerful and dense two verses! We have been blessed with every spiritual blessing. We were chosen in him before the foundation of the world. Because of Christ, we are made holy and blameless before the Father.

Take a minute and read that passage again.

Can we even fully grasp what it means to be so completely blessed? Can we fully grasp the richness of God’s love in choosing us so long ago? Can we even fully grasp what it means to be made holy and blameless?

May God truly enlarge our ability to understand. And then, may we respond in praise.
