Ephesians 1:7a – Redemption through His blood. What a high price He paid! Jesus gave His very life to rescue us from eternal damnation. What should be my response? Hebrews 10:22 – Have my heart sprinkled from an evil conscience and my body washed with pure water.
Ephesians 1:7b – The forgiveness of sins. What should my response be? Ephesians 4:32 – Be kind and tenderhearted to others. Forgive.
Ephesians 1:7c – The riches of His grace. My response? Be gracious toward others.
Ephesians 1:9 – Having made known to us the mystery of His will. My response? Share the Gospel with others. Everyone needs to know.
Ephesians 1:10 – To gather together in one all things in Christ. My response? Ephesians 1:12 – That I should be to the praise of His glory.
Jesus is Lord and King! What can I give Him for all these “blessings in Christ”? Everything I have!
7In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; 8Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: (KJV)
