In many ways it could be said that the BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST is the RICHEST AND MOST BLESSED PERSON ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. At times as we look around us and see the "apparent" prosperity of the godless, that may be difficult to realize. Nevertheless it is true that THE BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST HAS MORE IN LIFE AND ETERNITY THAN THE UNBELIEVER WILL EVER BEGIN TO IMAGINE OR EXPERIENCE! One passage of scripture that solidifies that reality is Ephesians 1:1-14 where the Holy Spirit led the Apostle Paul to speak of the SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS OF THE BELIEVER. This text should prove not only to be an academic study of the scripture, but also a passage of GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT as we learn more about what we have in Christ. As the old spiritual song says, "IT IS A GRAND THING TO BE A CHRISTIAN," this text relates to us why that is the case.
