Abundantly Blessed-Friday Freedom

the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints
Ephesians 1:18

If you are a true Christian, then you have been blessed greatly by the Lord. You have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Here Paul is praying for our enlightenment. Now that we have been blessed, we must seek God in the Spirit to understand exactly what those blessings are and how they apply to our lives (this means we have to study!). God’s people miss out on His best because we are too worldly-minded. But there are things that God has done for you that can not be affected by anything that happens on earth. Christ has redeemed you, given you new life, and also given you His Spirit, prepared good works for you, prepared a spiritual inheritance for you to receive, and the list goes on and on.
