You Are Redeemed (Ephesians 1:7-10)

Series: Ephesians (Your Identity in Christ)

For those who walk by the flesh, the future can seem bleak. There is not lasting identity or hope to hold onto. There is not a permanent place to belong. But Paul has been telling us about our spiritual blessings in the heavenly places. When people disappoint and loneliness looms, we can know the Father values us because he chose us. When life does not meet expectations and trials rock us, we can have hope because the Father has secured our future adoption. Our stories are not finished. But we must consider why we need every spiritual blessing. There is a reason we needed God to choose us to be holy and to predetermine our destiny to be adopted - sin. Paul has focused on the Father’s work before creation, but now Paul turns to speak of the Son’s work of redemption and forgiveness which specifically addresses our problem of sin so the Father’s plan can continue.
