Ephesians 1:3-14 2nd Sunday of Christmas 1/3/16
3 God has blessed us in Christ
every spiritual blessing
4 He chose us
purpose - to be holy and blameless
5 for adoption as sons
7 redemption = forgiveness
8 lavish grace on us
9 The mystery of his will - What is that mystery?
Christ - the redeemer - uniting all things
11 Christ has also given us an inheritance in his purpose
12 to make us for his praise through hope
13 When we believed “the gospel of salvation”
We were sealed with the Holy Spirit
14 a guarantee
We are still looking for the final possession of his promise.
