Thoughts from a friend on Ephesians 1:3-14

My friend Sandy Young put together a great outline and confession based upon Ephesians 1:3-14. I thought I would share it here as well.  Very good material for meditation on Ephesians 1.

Every Spiritual Blessing

1. Election (v. 4) – you are chosen
2. Predestination (5) – you are protected
3. Redemption (7) – you are free
4. Forgiveness (7) – you are forgiven
5. Revelation (9) – you are informed
6. Inheritance (11) – you have a glorious future
7. Holy Spirit (13f) – you are His forever

A confession

In Christ I am known, loved, and chosen by grace to be His.
In Christ my future as God’s child is already marked out.
In Christ I am free. Free from the burden of guilt, from the power of sin, from the dominion of Satan, and from the necessity to conform to this world.
In Christ I am forgiven through His own precious blood.
In Christ I have all the knowledge I need to bring glory to God.
In Christ I have a glorious future awaiting.
In Christ I am sealed with the Holy Spirit, and so belong to him forever. Amen.
