The Vocabulary of the Gospel

We look at the massive, 202 word sentence that Paul opens with in his letter to the Ephesians. In Ephesians 1:3-6, Paul bursts forth in a eulogy of praise to God for His many blessings. It is these blessings that form a new vocabulary for the New Covenant believer, one that encourages, lifts us up out of despondency, and makes us glad. This is the first of three sermons from this text.

Ephesians 1:3-6

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. (ESV)
