The Apostle Paul begins this epistle of grace by focusing our attention on the source of all blessings, that is the Triune God. We are greatly blessed due to the greatness of the blessedness of God. Then he moves on to reveal and revel in the blessings that each person of the Godhead lavishes upon the beloved in Christ. The sermon from Ephesians 1:3-6 (provided below) is intended to expand on these great truths. Here are the three main points of the sermon:
- Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
- How vast are the blessings in Christ!
- “To the praise of the glory of His grace”
