Artist's Description

Ephesians 1:3
3 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.
Paul writes about bless, blessed and blessings. The Jewish people used the word bless to express both God’s kindness to us and our thanks or praise to Him.
The Hebrew word בָּרוּךְ (blessed) conveys the idea of being strengthened, of our weakness being compensated for with God’s strength. The field of meaning of its root (ברך) is “to kneel, bless, praise, salute.”
One of the nouns which derives from this root is the Hebrew word for “knee” (בֶּרֶך), which is one of the weakest parts of the body; i.e. the English idiom for fear-stricken “weak in the knees.” You can see even in English the relationship between the two words “knee” and “kneel.” In our weakness, we kneel before God and He provides His strength (lit. blessing). Thus a blessing from God is empowerment to be able to do what is not within our natural capabilities.

NIV study bible Note on this verses in Ephesians 1 speaks about how the apostle Paul in one paragraph recites a doxology of praise, an act of worship and honor to God our Father for what He has done. Paul speaks first of the blessings we have through the Father, then those that came through Jesus Christ his son and finally those through receiving Holy Spirit.
All 6 chapters of the book of Ephesians in the bible are very enlightening as well as powerful . It is one of my favorite books of the Bible. ♥☺♥
