Ephesians (part 2)
Ephesians chapter one describes salvation from God’s perspective; chapter two describes salvation from our perspective. In the longest single sentence we have from him, Paul discloses the spiritual blessings that God has showered on all followers of Christ. Many are not aware of the spiritual reality that exists alongside our physical reality, and we often discount these invisible, superior spiritual blessings when we count our physical, temporal blessings. By remembering the gifts God has clothed us with in Christ—our election, adoption, forgiveness, and sealing Holy Spirit, among others—we’re left speechless before God’s astonishing grace. We lack nothing.
