“We often want to earn our place in the Kingdom, but God has given us everything we need to be who He has called us to be and do what He has called us to do. ”
The “therefores” in Scripture talk about what we do as disciples of Jesus, but they only come after establishing who we are in Christ and what He is “there for.” Jesus has given us His presence and is always there with us, He has given us His power and sealed us with His promise- the Holy Spirit. We often want to focus on what we need to “do” for God, but the truth is that He has already done it all!
“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 NKJV
