PostSubject: The Source of Victory   Wed May 06, 2015 9:26 am

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Ephesians 1:3

When attempting to explain the greatness of this mystery we have in Christ, a pastor once said, “It takes just a second to get saved, but then we spend the rest of our lives finding out what happened.”

When that moment in time comes...when we consciously respond to the call of God to believe the gospel and receive Christ as our Savior, then we begin to understand things like the fact that we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

Think about that: every spiritual blessing that is possible is ours in Christ right now. Those blessings are not something we work at gaining; they are ours now. What are those spiritual blessings? More than I can delineate in this limited space. Consider forgiveness, love, holiness, joy, and peace, to name a few. Later on in chapter 1 of Ephesians, the Apostle Paul prays that we will be strengthened in our inner man so we will be able to grasp this. For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1: 15-19

Insight: If you've received Christ as your Savior, take time to consider the spiritual blessings given to you in Christ; then...bask in the glory of the One who gave them to you. You see, without God’s grace, it's impossible and incomprehensible. The blessing we have in Christ that brings victory over sin is that great.

Dear God, I ask that the reader will come to know you through Your Son, Jesus the Savior...and then just as the Apostle Paul has asked You, I also ask You that they will come to know You better, "The Source of Victory" and know the hope to which You have called them. In Jesus' Name Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
