Read Ephesians 1:3-10

Spiritual Blessings in Christ

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, just as he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before him in love. He destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and insight he has made known to us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth in Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to gather up all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

Say Together:

“God chose us in His Son to be His adopted children.”

Talk About:

How does it make you feel to know that when Jesus came to earth as a baby, He already had you in mind? How can you live out your calling as a child of God this week?


Jesus, you came to save us and to invite us into your family. Come, Lord, and save us. Set us free from the sin of the world. You came from the Father. Show us the path that leads to Him. You were conceived by the Holy Spirit. By your Word, renew the same spirit in our hearts.
