Blessings

There’s a plague that has struck Christians – it’s the plague of materialism. We’ve lost sight of the truth that this worldly kingdom with its alluring wares is not our home.

Ephesians 1:3 reminds us that 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. 

Note two things: (1) God has already – has blessed us – given His children every possible blessing He has to bestow; and (2) these blessings are spiritual in nature, not physical.

This doesn’t mean that our Father doesn’t meet our material needs. He knows that we have necessities for physical survival, but His great undertaking of salvation and provision for us is spiritual in nature. While many Christians plead with Him to meet physical needs, they neglect His abundant outpouring of spiritual wealth already received in Jesus.
