We Have Been Blessed with All Blessings

Bible Verses

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ, Rom 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us , who can be against us ?

Words of Ministry

All the blessings, benefits, and bounties in the universe are of three categories. The first category is God's creation, the second is God's redemption, and the third is God's regeneration. In God's creation we enjoy so many good things: air, sunshine, minerals, animal life, vegetable life. All these are good things of God's creation, and we are qualified to partake of them because we are God's creatures. Furthermore, as the redeemed ones, we enjoy forgiveness of sins, justification by faith, reconciliation in God's grace, and sanctification. Because we are redeemed, all the benefits in God's redemption are ours. Moreover, because we have been regenerated, we enjoy God's life, His nature, and His Person. By these three qualifications--being created, redeemed, and regenerated--we are fully and thoroughly qualified to enjoy all the blessings in the universe, the blessings in God's creation, redemption, and regeneration. The angels may be sinless, but they are not qualified to enjoy all these blessings. But through the blood of Christ, we enjoy forgiveness of sins, the washing of the blood, justification by faith, and peace with God. We enjoy all the blessings of Christ's redemption. Furthermore, we daily enjoy all the benefits and bounties of God's regeneration. We have the divine life, the divine nature, and the divine Person. What could be higher than this? Today we enjoy the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Father.
