THE REALITIES OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE EPH 1:3-14

Praise the Lord, His will is perfect, He is always good
The Holy Trinity-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is the source of our blessing
His blessings showered upon us in the heavenlies, where Satan roams
That prince of the powers of the air may haunt the heavenlies
Rest assured that Jesus Christ has already won the victory
Calling us to trust and obey-walk in obedience-claim this gift-He gives it for you

We are beings caught in time-I was, I am, I will be
Jesus is timeless-before Abraham I am
If the Father hadn’t chosen me before the foundation of the world He wouldn’t choose me now
He removed all of our sin-He saves us, He sanctifies us, He gives us His righteousness
The Father sees us in Christ, holy and without blemish, making us His sons and daughters
God made us His beloved, it wasn’t our idea

Christ forgives our sin by the riches of His grace- divine and human
His grace providing for our need-we don’t deserve it, it is free to you and me
We are loved and He loves us because He chose to love us
He does what He does because He is what He is, God is love
One day all things will be summed up in Jesus
Jesus is God’s everything-beyond anything we can imagine

The Holy Spirit is seeking to enable us
He doesn’t bless programs and performances-He blesses His Word
It speaks to us, giving us wisdom mercy and grace, speaking salvation to us
Witnessing to our belief, guiding our faith-Active in me
We are sealed by the Holy Spirit, nothing can separate us from Jesus
In Christ we are free, He loves you and me, to the praise of His glory
