We are Blessed in Jesus
When we are in Christ we are blessed by Him!
In Ephesians, chapter 1 we can read some well-known bible verses on blessing:
Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
(Eph 1:2-7 KJV)
Many Christians are asking God to bless them while the Bible here tells us that if we are in Jesus we are already blessed with all spiritual blessings!
That is an awesome truth!
The bible quotes tell us that all blessings belong to us because Jesus gave it to us when He died for us! We did not get blessed because of something we achieved ourselves, but because God loved us so much that He send Jesus to win back all that what we had lost! So it is only because of Him we are blessed!
We are blessed in Jesus
First of all; we are chosen by God to be in Christ. What a blessing! God wanted to adopt us back into Gods family! (Sin made us loose our status as children, but through Jesus we get it back!) So when we are in Jesus we are in the family – God’s own family!
No one of us deserves this new life in Jesus, but we are accepted by God and loved to the max! We have redemption in Jesus; it means that our sins are forgiven and we now belong to God family and also inherit the blessings from heaven!
This is the beginning of everything that we receive from the Lord. Only because of Jesus we can live in victory and see Gods kind of life be manifested in us and through us.
