In Christ all believers have EVERY spiritual blessing:
Eph 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”
What are these blessings?
The believer is holy and blameless:
Eph 1 “holy and blameless in his sight.”
We are sons of God
Eph 1 “sonship through Jesus Christ”
We are redeemed by His blood
Eph 1 “we have redemption through his blood”
We are forgiven ALL sins
Col 2 “forgiven ALL sin”
We are justified through faith in Jesus by His blood
Romans 5 “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,…..9 Since we have now been justified by his blood”
We are SAVED by grace and not works
Eph 2 “8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.”
We are Righteous by faith in Jesus because Christ is our righteousness and not our works
1 Corinthians 1 “you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”
Romans 4 ” 5 However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. …..to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification”
We are Sanctified / Holy by faith through His blood
Acts 26 “who are sanctified by faith in me.’”
Hebrews 10 “10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”
We are PERFECT and SINLESS
Hebrews 10 “14 For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are made holy.”
We are not dead in our sins but we are ALIVE in Christ.
Eph 2 “4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”
The believer died to sin and now Christ lives in us.
Rom 6 “11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. “
There is no sin in the believer because Christ alone lives in us.
We died with Christ and Christ lives in us.
Gal 2 ” 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
We were dead but now raised with Christ, sinless and perfect, seated in heaven purified of all sins.
Heb 1 “After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven”
Eph 2 “6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, “
As Jesus is sinless, so are we
1 John 3 “is righteous, just as he is righteous. ” 1 John 4 ” In this world we are like Jesus.”
