Blessings Part 10  E-mail

Are we really seeing all that the Lord has blessed us with, in the package of salvation? Spiritual Blessings, chosen us, predestined us, adopted us, made us accepted, redeemed us, forgives us and now we look at  verse 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Who do we have faith in God, or Satan? Who has chosen us and called us unto Himself? How do you obtain anything?  Is it not work just to have faith in God for deliverance of sin?  That is having the ability to just say NO! Resisting is more difficult to day, for we hearing you have to listen to authority. Whoís authority, mans or Gods?

Yes, God created us for His glory and said, just do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He created us so we would learn to obey, and since we didnít He came with a purpose of dieing for our sins, we could not do it. God gave Jesus power to endure the shame and take upon Himself the sins of the world. Notice if we believe, the promises are ours if we are obedient. God predestined all the world be saved, but few are chosen because more do not want any help of any kind.

I like what Adam Clarkís Commentary says; and as the apostle speaks of obtaining the inheritance, he most evidently refers to that of which the promised land was the type and pledge. And as that land was assigned to the Israelites by limit and lot, both of which were appointed by God so the salvation now sent to the Gentiles was as expressly their lot or portion, as the promised land was that of the people of Israel. All this shows that the Israelites were a typical people; their land, the manner of possessing it, their civil and religious code, etc., etc., all typical; and that in, by, and through them, God had fore-determined, fore-described, and fore-ascertained a greater and more glorious people, among whom the deepest counsels of his wisdom should be manifested, and the most powerful works of his eternal mercy, grace, holiness, goodness, and truth, be fully exhibited. Thus there was nothing fortuitous in the Christian scheme; all was the result of infinite counsel and design.

Who gave us the blessing we enjoy? Wasnít and isnít it, Godís love, mercy and grace. We do not deserve all heís benefited us with and certainly we had nothing to do with it, but believe in God, as we accepted His Son, as the rule and purpose for our lives. Not my well be done, but yours, oh Lord!
