Ephesians 1 - Blessed Beyond Measure

The letter assumes a working knowledge of the triune nature of Man - spirit, soul and body and therefore begins with a picture of what God has accomplished.

(You may fill in the gaps)

- blessed us with …

- chosen us that …

- predestined us for …

- lavished on us …

- made us accepted in …

- made … … to abound toward us

- made known to us …

These are done, already done. But how many times do I catch myself still praying to be blessed, accepted and… ?

To make it difficult for us to fail, at salvation, we were sealed with the Holy Spirit. This blows the natural mind away.

Paul now prays that we may KNOW (i) who we are and (ii) what we have in Christ.


A man that is held in honour and does not understand is not different from the beast of the field that perishes.
(Psalm 49:20)
