Relationships

Ephesians 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly place.

One of the many blessings that we have been given by our Heavenly Father is relationships. For example, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, grandparents, and many others make up the families that nurture and love us throughout our lives. We have relationships with friends that we enjoy each day. Some friends we have known for decades, others we have just met. Our teachers work very hard to develop relationships with their students. Day in and day out they challenge, welcome, care for, discipline, and love the children of our school. Relationships are everywhere. Ephesians 1:3 speaks of the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a clear reference to the relationship within the Trinity. Just as God is our Father in heaven, he also is the Father of our Savior. The Father in Heaven, whom Jesus loved and prayed to, is the same Father who loves us dearly. It's a relationship that is held strongly together by the love he showed in sending his only Son to die for us.
