Sermon Outline

Ephesians 1:3-8 NKJV Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,


Three truths regarding our blessings:
1. They are spiritual, not material.

Ephesians 1:3 NKJV Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

Spiritual (Pneumatikos) = non-carnal, supernatural

1 Peter 1:3-4 NKJV Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,

2. They are positional, not conditional.

Ephesians 1:5 NKJV having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

3. They involve actions in the past, present and future.

Lots of people die leaving unkept promises on the table, but God never will!
