Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 1:3)
It can be easy to dwell on the negative things that happen in our lives rather than God’s goodness. We could each list things that caused concern and anxiety these last months. Instead, let’s take time this week to think about how God has truly blessed us.
We begin with the greatest blessing offered to all mankind. God sent is Son Jesus for our salvation. Sin separates people from a holy God. Jesus came to provide for our forgiveness. Through faith we receive God’s forgiveness.
Let’s make it personal. God loves you. He sent Jesus to earth for you. Jesus suffered and died on the cross to pay for your sins. He rose from the dead so you may have eternal life. He will return one day to bring you home to heaven with him. God gave you the gift of faith to believe and trust in the work of Christ for your salvation. You are truly blessed.
Verse for today:
Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin. (Romans 4:7-8)
