At times we think that we are spiritually incomplete even after believing in Jesus.
We look at our flaws and failures and think that we need to do more to be acceptable to God.
But what is the truth?
Ephesians 1 “3 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.”
When we believed in Jesus, we received EVERY spiritual blessing.
What is that blessing?
Ephesians 1 “4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace “
– We are Holy (we are Sanctified and as Righteous as God)
– We are Blameless (No accusation/condemnation/judgment)
– Forgiven all sin
– We are Sons of God
How did this happen?
– By the Blood of Jesus on the Cross.
When we believed in Jesus, we received 100% forgiveness, holiness, righteousness, sonship!
It is because on the Cross, Jesus died for our sins.
His one sacrifice on the cross made us holy and righteous, forgiving us all sin.
He paid the full price on the cross.
The believer has everything in Christ.
When Jesus rose from the dead, we were raised with Him, having EVERY spiritual blessing – being as holy and righteous as God !!
