This is the title of the teaching I will be doing tomorrow evening (2-12-16) at Psalm 19 Ministries’ regular Friday Fellowship meeting – 7 pm. Please consider joining us (at Live-Stream if you are not in our area) at 6138 S. Salina St., Syracuse, NY.
When we gathered a few weeks ago, I taught on Ephesians 1:1-14. Tomorrow I will be teaching on Ephesians 1:15-23 and Romans 8:28-30. Both of these passages describe the marvelous “spiritual blessings” the Lord gives to His own. These are not earned, nor are they given to a “special few.” Instead they are in Him and therefore poured out abundantly into each who are His own. The empowering goes on and on. Yet, most of us have not understood the depth and the inclusion of ourselves in this belonging.
I have translated the passages for us in order to more accurately reflect what the Greek is saying, concentrating on the accurate translation of the conjunctions and pronouns. It is amazing what is unfolded when this is done. If the translator does not understand the completeness of the “in Christ” of all who are His, then these truths will not be understood and certainly not “seen” in the believer’s heart. These things were intended for us to “behold.” When we see, we then can embrace and walk in its empowement.
So plan to join us and allow your heart to be enfolded in our true destiny in His love and provision.
