Good morning people who ‘lack no good thing’ in Christ Jesus
Ephesians 1:3 NIV 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.
IN CHRIST is where every spiritual blessing is found, and we are living IN CHRIST!
I want to remind us all that Christ not only lives in us, but even more powerfully, we live IN CHRIST!
An acknowledgement of how blessed we are IN CHRIST is more powerful and more accurate than continually asking God to bless us.
Let me push this further:
Asking God to bless us is a focus on God needing to give something to us – God to us.
Yet this verse tells us that the blessings of God are IN CHRIST – us in God.
“Are you IN CHRIST?”
If so, you can’t be more blessed – you can’t be more blessed than being IN CHRIST!
