The Believer's Blessings in Christ

The work of the Father: Election (Ephesians 1:3-6)
The work of the Son: Redemption (Ephesians 1:7-12)
The work of the Spirit: Protection (Ephesians 1:13,14)

Blessed v.3
Chosen v.4
Predestined v.5
Adopted v.5
Redeemed v. 7
Forgiven v.7
Enlightened vv.8,9
Given an Inheritance v. 11
Sealed v.13
Assured v.14
It would do us good to ponder more on these Biblical Truths and the work of the Trinity. Some of the Truths make some people uncomfortable because it relinquishes our control and choice, but God is either sovereign or He's not. Let's embrace His gift and while we may not understand all things, Scripture also reminds us that, "Who has known the mind of the Lord...?" Romans 11:34
Thank you Lord that you chose me for I am so unworthy!
