Ephesians 1:1-14, In Christ

Verse 3 of the first chapter of Ephesians talks about us being blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ.  I found this interesting, these are not just blessings that we are given, we are given them in Christ.  Through verse 14 Paul talks about a handful of things that are ours in Christ.  So I decided to go through the verses and take notes on these things:

In Christ (Ephesians 1:1-14)
  1. We have been given every spiritual blessing in heaven.
  2. He chose us before the world was made
  3. God made us His own children
  4. God freely gave His grace to us
  5. We are set free from sin by His blood, we are given grace
  6. God let us know His secret purpose for us (see also 1 Corinthians 2:7)
  7. God joined all things in heaven and earth together
  8. We were chosen to be His people
  9. God put His seal, His special mark on us (Holy Spirit)
