Thanksliving-Part 6

January 28, 2015

 

Listen to what Paul said about our blessings in Ephesians 1:3“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,”

My friend, we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus!  Louis Sperry Chafer said this about this passage, “To be in Christ, which is the portion of all who are saved is to partake of all that Christ has done past, all that He is present, and all that He ever will be future.” My friend, listen, we can chose to live our lives Thanksliving. Remembering the past, thanking Him for the present, thanking Him for what the Bible says are the riches of the inheritance of the saints, which we are one of. 

Sometimes we just need to stop and count our blessings. My friend, listen, do you know what this will do to you? This will cause you to worship…worshipping Him. Think about your salvation? You are saved. Thank you Lord for saving my soul, Thank you Lord, for making me whole. Do you feel whole today? If you do not feel whole it is because you don’t know who this God is. You know what? You love Him more when you know more about what His Word says about Who He is and what He is to you for all eternity.
