All Spiritual Blessings Eph. 1:3
“Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places IN CHRIST.”
“The Holy Spirit uses this phrase over and over again - IN CHRIST. The whole of the word of God is to reveal to us the Lord Jesus and his accomplished salvation. The whole of God’s word is to teach us what we have IN CHRIST.
When Our Lord Jesus Christ said, ‘Come unto me, and you shall find rest for your souls’ He is telling us there is no other place, other than in Him, to find rest for our soul - rest from the guilt and power of sin.
When Christ said, ‘Come unto me’, He didn’t say come to a particular position on doctrine, come to election, or come to imputed righteousness. He didn’t say come to total depravity, or to God’s Sovereignty. He told sinners to COME UNTO ME! Why? Because when a sinner comes to Christ they receive all that he did in his work, all that he is in His person. We were chosen in HIM, and accepted in HIM. Redemption is through HIS blood, we obtained an inheritance in HIM, and we were quickened together with HIM, raised up to sit together in heavenly places in HIM. The long and the short of it beloved is that if we have Christ we have ALL WE NEED, and we have it where it counts, before God Almighty who demands perfection. Blessed be his name for he has provided us perfection IN CHRIST. ‘And ye are COMPLETE IN HIM, which is the head of all principality and power’.
We need righteousness - Christ is our righteousness. We need wisdom - Christ is our wisdom. We need sanctification - Christ is our sanctification. We need redemption and Christ is our redemption. God made Him so unto us (1Cor. 1:30).
Christ said: COME UNTO ME, in coming to Him you will have all that is IN HIM and you will spend the rest of your life learning about all you have IN HIM!”
