In the first message of this series, we receive a call to bless the Lord who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. As an introduction to his letter to the Church in Ephesus, Paul lays out the nature of God’s blessing and, in the process, reveals that God is the Master Planner who is sovereign over all things.
God’s blessing of us began in eternity past when he chose us before the creation of the world. It is a present reality in that His salvation has come to us now; we have received and live in His grace. Finally, God’s blessing governs the future; His gift of the Holy Spirit marks us as His own but also is a deposit which guarantees our future inheritance in His heavenly kingdom.
This Master Planner is certainly worthy to be blessed by His people!
