In Christianity, for a person to grow in godliness, he doesn’t need an instruction manual. What He needs to do is to behold and embrace Christ’s love for himself daily, and that inevitably starts maturing him. It is to grow in his understanding of God’s love for himself that begins to change the heart and causes him to have basic Christian virtues.
Chapter: Ephesians 1
Our Eternal Inheritance
God promised Abraham of the inheritance he is going to receive. God promised Israel of the inheritance of the promised land that they are going to receive. God has always promised an inheritance to His people in the Bible, as a way of His loving assurance. All of His promises of inheritance are realized in Jesus Christ, and this itself is worth pondering over, for our entire life.
Spiritual Blessings in Christ
The author in Ephesians talks about “Spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” in Eph 1:3, that Christians receive when they believe in Christ. But what does “Spiritual blessing” entail for us in Christian life, while on earth? Listen to the sermon to learn more on the salvation blessings we have as a result of Christ redeeming us.
Our Election in Christ
In Christ, we have every spiritual blessing granted to us. The first Spiritual blessing is His election or predestination. God chooses sinners before the foundation of world. In this passage, we learn why and how God elects sinners to be saved.
