Daily Fountain 2017 - We Are Predestined To Eternal Life Through Christ

Sunday June 11

Bible Reading:     Eph. 1: 3 - 14
Topic:         We Are Predestined To Eternal Life Through Christ

The letter to the Ephesians develops the theme of unity by mentioning the way in which God the Father had chosen us as His People. how we have been forgiven and set free from our sins through Jesus Christ His Son and how God's promise of eternal salvation has been fulfilled for us by the Holy Spirit.

God kept His eternal plan a secret from the foundation of the World and at the appointed time, He has revealed it through His Son through Whom He chose those who believed to be His own adopted sons and who belong to His family. He gave such the rights of inheritance having been accepted in the beloved of Christ.

The ignorance of our position and inheritance in Christ is one major problem of many Christians. God has called us and blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.

In v. 8 we read that "He has showered His kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding".

Lastly,  because we trusted in Him, when we heard the Word of Truth, we were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise which is the guarantee of our inheritance.

What else do we need?
We are encouraged to constantly remember and appropriate the blessings God has attached to our choice to be holy and blameless and predestined to salvation through Christ forever.

Let us not lose sight of our great inheritance in and through Christ

O God, give to me and renew me daily by Your Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of Christ, Amen.

Memory Verse             Eph. 1: 3
"Blessed be the God, and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ."
