Grace: Part 14

September 5, 2021

Praise Him!

Ephesians 1:3

Praise!

Blessings!

Blessings…what are they?

  • How are they measured
  • How are they given out
  • Who determines who gets them
  • How hard must you work to get one
  • Can anyone get them
  • Do you benefit from getting them

God’s favor and protection

Thought: God is doing us a favor by giving us protection and blessings?

The word “bless” is to eulogize.

So, God has invoked a favor of blessings from heaven itself.

  • Everything that belongs to heaven – blesses us
  • Everything that comes from heaven – blesses us

Philippians 3:20 NIV  

  1. God the Father blessed us with favor when he sent his son
  • This unique relationship was shared with us
  1. Jesus came from heaven and blessed us
  • We now can have a unique relationship with him
  1. All that we are and all that we have is because of this wonderful favor that God did for us

Shouldn’t we, wouldn’t we, ought we to praise!

  • Is he not worthy of it
  • Is it not right of us to do so
  • Should we do anything less than praise him

Read: Psalm 150 NLT
