Ephesians1 Part 1–Our Triune God

The Lord had a plan.  Since He first exclaimed, “Let there be light!”, God in three persons created, filled, and executed His plan to build personal relationships with His chosen.  John 1 reminds us that Jesus was “Logos” – the Word -and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He executed the Father’s command “Let there be light.” In addition, He came and showed the world the true nature of the Father. 

God was not some impersonal and vain being who ignored the people he was supposed to love. God was a father that loved HIs chosen and healed, fed, freed, and welcomed all who would accept His love.  What is more, God was willing to give His most precious gift – His son – to redeem us. Then, Jesus showed through His resurrection, that God was able to defeat the enemy and erase the curse of hopelessness that sin had instilled in mankind.

Once redeemed, God sealed us with the Holy Spirit to comfort, guide, and remind us that God is with us and will remain available 24/7 to meet us where we are and transform us into His image. Our transformation is no small task, but He has promised not only to begin the work, but also to carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6.

We are so blessed to serve one God – the master and creator of all – who is three persons:  Father, Son, and Spirit. Since the Father put the plan together, He has executed it flawlessly across history and will continue to do so until Christ’s return.

God Bless You

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he[d] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

11 In him we were also chosen,[e] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.


This is an amazing Journey. I hope you will hear from the Lord, as you seek Him with your heart. Matthew 6:33
