DO you feel blessed right now…
With the world in lockdown it can feel like we are not very blessed. But it’s not just lockdown, any suffering can have that effect on us.
Yet in Jesus there are blessings far better than we ever imagined. Have you seen how good they are? These blessings fill us with joy and gratitude.
This term at Regenerate youth we’re going to see how blessed we really are by looking at the blessings in Ephesians 1:3-14. Join us at 7:00pm every Friday night on zoom as we remind ourselves of what Jesus has done for us.

Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ Ephesians 1:3-14
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 for adoption to sonship 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, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation.
When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
