Paul opens his book to the Ephesians with a remarkable set of words...and get this, it’s all one sentence in the Greek. Ephesians 1:3-8 3 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, 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight Blessed...that’s the word he uses to describe what Christ has done for us. Blessed...it has nothing to do with good health, material things, money, great job, even great kids (but I know I feel blessed for that).
