Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Ephesians 1:3-6
We all love to receive gifts and special blessings. It is one of the tiny pleasures in life that brings us joy, especially the anticipation ahead of time.
The Scripture verses today are a brief glimmer to build anticipation for the blessings that are reserved in the heavenly realm for those who belong to Christ. It is a bit of a sneak peek into those gifts without the reality of their immeasurable worth and grandeur.
God is saying “they’re yours and you were chosen before time to receive those blessings”. To be chosen by God speaks of the immense beauty and value the Father sees in you. Yes, He knows you by name and has freely given you these treasures in the One He loves, Jesus Christ.
