The last time I did an in-depth study of the book of Ephesians was in July 2015.I just realized that 2015 was an election year in my country Kenya, so is 2022.This is a by the way, otherwise welcome and join me as we study this book throughout the month of January.
Today our reading comes from Ephesians 1:11-14
In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
Ephesians 1:11-14 NKJV
Today’s Discussion Questions;
Through God’s great love for us, he chose and predestined us for adoption. Those who have heard the word of truth and believed in him, receive the Holy Spirit which acts as a seal, guaranteeing our inheritance in heaven.
Here we see God’s sovereignty at work in our salvation as he chose and predestined us. We also see man’s cooperation, as we heard the truth and believed. The Holy Spirit is present in every single believer. Isn’t that wonderful? God is with you all the time and his promises are sure. You are guaranteed an eternal life in heaven. No one can break the seal of God! In what area of your life are you struggling to trust God and how does knowing this truth give you more confidence in the Lord?
The area in my life I am struggling to trust God is(personal), however knowing this truth gives me more confidence in the Lord.
