I shared my summary of Ephesians 1:1-5:14 this morning. A few people asked that I share it online – So here it is. I hope it is an encouragement to you:
Too Blessed to Be Depressed:
I am too blessed to be depressed! I have every spiritual blessing in Christ. I have been chosen, adopted, redeemed, forgiven, enlightened, predestined, included, sealed, set apart, set free, saved by grace, saved to serve, made to minister, resurrected from a spiritual graveyard, brought near by His blood, united with His people, reconciled by His cross, and placed in the family of God. I have become a servant of the gospel. I live for His glory and I will die telling His story. I have freedom, confidence and encouragement because I am in Christ. He dwells in my heart, His love is indescribable and undefinable. He can do more than I could ever ask or imagine; He’s called me to live a life that is worthy. He is still working on me. He has gifted me, placed me, and equipped me so I can equip others. He is the head of the body, the church is His body, the church is His bride. We’ve got to love each other, work together, reject our old life, embrace our new life, speak the truth in love, speaks words of encouragement not discouragement, love one another deeply and reject counterfeit corruptness that the evil one seduces us with so that we can be the light of the world! Yes indeed, I am too blessed to be depressed!
