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: 4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Read: Eph. 1:3-12
For everyone who is in Christ Jesus, it is not by his design that he got there. It is that the Lord Himself had so ordained it from the foundation of the earth. He is so predestined by God.
When God was to create man, He first made a place of comfort for his residence. In the same manner, for everyone that would come into Christ, the Lord Himself had from the foundation of the earth blessed the same with spiritual blessings in heavenly places. The only thing is, these blessings are in Christ Jesus and they are certain. For as long as he remains in Christ Jesus, the blessings remain and are irreversible.
Remaining in Christ Jesus is to be holy and without blame. Some people still assume living holy is some utopia that is not attainable or difficult to attain. That is rather incorrect. For what is the essence of Christ’s life? He came to be an example to us of how to live a pleasing life unto the Father. If He could do it successfully, nothing says we can’t. All that is important is to emulate Him. For instance, He could achieve His goodness and miracles because God anointed Him with the Holy Ghost and with power.
Therefore, to succeed like Him, get anointed of God with the Holy Ghost and power. When you attain that and you are led by the same Spirit, you are also able to say in the end like Paul that you have finished your cause and say certainly what trophies await you.
Put it to heart. Ask God for the same anointing. Very soon people will marvel at your holy living.
Lord, I need your anointing and power that I may do greater works than Christ did while on the face of the earth; that I may finish well and strong in you. Please anoint me today with your Holy Ghost and power in Jesus name.
