Ephesians 1:4-14
5 The Blessings - Part I

In Ephesians 1:3 St. Paul says that God "has blessed us with every spiritual blessing". This means the blessings are not necessarily earthly and affirms that the Holy Spirit is a major agent in the blessing. Chapter 1:4-14 highlights God's sovereign choice, his plan centred and accomplished in Christ, and the Christians' assurance. This sermon makes six observations of this text to help us better understand these wonderful blessings. 

No wonder theologian Kyle Snodgrass declares, "This whole section is worship: God is being praised, and the focus of that praise is what God has done in Christ and what is available in Christ."
