Med#2: Blessed..and blessed.
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ..
Again, we see the Father and the Son in the same breath; but not ‘Father and Son’, rather, ‘Father of Son’. Also, not ‘our Father and Lord’, but, ‘the Father of our Lord’. Subtle differences that demand attention from this detail addict. And, the word ‘bless’ appears twice: ‘blessed be God who blesses us in the Son’.
So why the subtle differences?
Consider other pp’s (prepositional phrases) as well as ‘in Christ’: i.e. ’with every spiritual blessing’, and ‘in the heavenlies’.
What are some of your personal blessings?
