I’m doing another Good Morning Girls study, this time in the book of Ephesians with a wonderful group of bloggers. It’s been very encouraging to read the thoughts of others on the first 14 verses of this New Testament epistle written by the Apostle Paul.
There are some beautiful words found in this portion of Scripture that describe who we are in Christ:
Look also at some of the wonderful things God has done for us through His Son!
“blessed us with every spiritual blessing” vs. 3
“chose us before the foundation of the world” vs. 4
“redemption through His blood” vs. 7
“forgiveness of our trespasses” vs. 7
“lavished on us (his grace)” vs. 8
“made known to us the mystery of His will” vs. 9
gave us the Holy Spirit as “a pledge of our inheritance” vs. 13-14
Wow! So many glorious things to try to wrap my mind around, although I’ll never understand them completely. God is so very good to us and truly has an everlasting love for each and every single person. We had nothing to give Him and yet He freely gave us such incredible blessings. What an amazing God we serve!

I love the list of words describing who we are in Christ! We get so easily down on ourselves and often think we’ll never live up to His plan for us. If only we could see ourselves as He sees us! Thank you for taking the time to link-up this post!! Hope your week is getting off to a great start!!
