Ephesians 1:3-8 "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 predestined us to be adopted as his sons 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." Are these not amazing verses before us? Just in these verses God tells us,He has blessed us,chose us,adopted us,has given redemption,the forgiveness of our sins, and He has given us all the wisdom and knowledge we need.We so long to be loved,but here it tells us that He first loved us,and with His love and through His blood we have his forgiveness,that we still don't have with others here with us,and to give us all wisdom and knowledge,what a gift. Some search their whole lives for knowledge,some gain knowledge,and can be some of the smartest people in the world,but knowledge without God's wisdom is useless.Living our lives everyday we get so caught up in our diffucult situations,where do we turn? Some turn totally away from Christ,others seek friends advice,Dr.Phil.or even goodness,Oprah the god of television.We should be seeking God first above all. He has given us so much freely for us to take,but as we take we should also be giving.What is knowledge or wisdom if it is not being shared and shone through our lives? God has given us all gifts for His glory,we should use each one for Him,not for our own gain,or to get a pat on the back,or even to be acknowledged,because all good that comes from us,is really God shining through.In His word,He shows us His will, His way for us to live,and with that comes blessings,that do not just reach us,but touch everyone we touch.He has given us Heaven,a place we can learn about in His word.It is not a secret,all is right there for us to see,if we can just take our eyes off of us,and move out of our little box,He will give us glimpes of Heaven and what is to come.We should be thinking upon Heaven,and Jesus,not wasting our time with earthly "things" that will not matter in Heaven. If I allow Him to,He opens my eyes to His glory everyday,He teaches me,and gives me,His child,all I need to know,and loves me beyond words.No other can love us like our Father in Heaven,so why not today,live it like it our last,get into His word,learn more about Him who loves us,and about Heaven,the special place He is preparing for us.Our walk here on earth is a short one,and on this road if we choose to follow Him,He will show us the way,not just around the corner,or down the road a peice,but He will show us,just how to get where He wants us to be.
