Often in life we find ourselves thinking about what we lack and are missing.
I wonder, do we spend as much time thanking God for the riches we have because Jesus came?
How good to be reminded by Paul that God the Father has blessed, and not cursed, us. And what a blessing – “every spiritual blessing” is ours because of Jesus!
We hear God calling us afresh through this text: reminding us that he chose us before the creation of the world. And we were chosen for a purpose: to be holy and blameless yes, but also, in love, chosen to be children of God.
Today, whether our circumstances are easy or hard, good or bad, as Christians we find our identity and purpose afresh in this: that we are beloved children of God, blessed with everything we need because of Jesus.
