The Blessings of Salvation

Our Speaker during Family Bible Hour was Mr Dale Schreiber, Missionary to Muslims. The title of his message was "The Blessings of Salvation"; and the text used was Ephesians 1: 1-14

Paul, an apostle of Jesu Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:  Grace be to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ...
What are the blessings of salvation in Jesus Christ? Here is a quick re-cap:
I.  Our election in Christ; we were chosen by God

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love....  verse 4

II.  Our adoption into God's family; we are the children of God

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will... verse 5

III.  Our redemption in Christ; we've been set free from the bondage of sin

In whom we have redemption  through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace... verse 7

IV.  Our inheritance in Christ; we have a spiritual inheritance with its benefits through Christ; and, God inherited US.

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... verse 11

The complete message is available through DVD.  Please see Romy.
