When you think of Ephesians, think of the Apostle Paul as he taught
people in Ephesus how they were blessed.
Key Verse: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (1:3).
God is blessed. Jesus is blessed. God’s children are blessed. We are blessed “with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” If you are “in God” and “in Christ,” you are blessed.
To be blessed means to be right and happy. You must choose to be “in God.” You must decide to be right and blessed. The Book of Ephesians lists many blessings for Christians who obey. God’s children are chosen (1:4), predestinated, adopted (1:5), accepted (1:6), redeemed, forgiven (1:7), sealed (1:13), given wisdom (1:17), enlightened, called, given inheritance (1:18), made alive (2:5), raised up, set in heavenly places (2:6), in Christ (2:6), saved (2:8), made God’s workmanship (2:10), made near (2:13), reconciled (2:16), fellowcitizens with saints (2:19), fellowheirs, partakers of God’s promise (3:6), given boldness, access, confidence (3:12), strengthened (3:16), rooted, grounded (3:17), and loved (3:19).
Because of God’s blessings, Paul begged Christians in Ephesus to “walk worthy” of the vocation wherewith they were called (4:1). Then Ephesians teaches how to live worthy as individuals, ministers, wives, husbands, children and servants.
The Book of Ephesians is still good today. God still wants you—His child—to be blessed. He wants you to walk worthy of your calling.
Paul’s epistles (letters) teach that Christians are justified, sanctified, reconciled, liberated, and blessed! With those blessings, Christians should want to cut off sins of the past and to live worthy lives for the future.
Walk Worthy—You are Blessed!
