The Location of Every Blessing

When I read the following, I say to myself what a magnificent verse, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).
In the heavenly places–such as the church–in Christ we can enjoy every spiritual blessing. No wonder Paul said the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is blessed. Let us bless the Father for what He has made available to us by being Christians.
What blessings did Paul have in mind? Ephesians 1:4-14 reveals those blessings. When you read that text, notice that Paul did not list one fleshly blessing. Let us like Paul focus on what God does for us in the spirit, not what we want Him to do for us in the flesh.
