"That's My King!" In The Book Of Ephesians!

In union with my King, we are blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places!
God the Father chose us for salvation in my King before the foundation of the world!
We were chosen to be holy and blameless before Him!
Only through Him can we be adopted as beloved sons and daughters of the living God!
He purchased redemption for us through His blood!
Only in Him can we find forgiveness of sins!
He's got everlasting, unfathomable riches of grace to lavish upon us for all eternity!
All things are united in Him, whether in heaven or on earth!

That's my King!

He grants His people an inheritance worth more than 10 trillion worlds with all their riches!
He was raised from the dead with a great mighty power!
He was seated at the right hand of His Father in the heavenly places!
He reigns far above all rule and authority and power and dominion!
His name is above every other name that is named, not only in this age but in the age to come!
All things are under His feet!
He's head over all things!
We can only be made alive with Him by grace through faith!
He is God's riches in mercy to us!
He is the greatest proof and demonstration of God's great love with which He loved us!

That's my King! Are you grasping the height and width and length and depth of the love of my King for you today?!

All His people are raised up with Him and seated with Him in the heavenly places!
It will take all the coming eternal ages for God to show us the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us that are found only in my King Jesus Christ!
His blood brings an end to all racial hostility!
He's our peace!
He makes all races, ages, backgrounds, personalities, and preferences one through His death on that cross!
He ended all hostility!
He came preaching peace!
He gives us access in one Spirit to the Father!
He's the cornerstone!
He's the temple of God almighty!
He's making His people into the very dwelling place of God by the Spirit!

That's my King!

He's full and overflowing with unsearchable riches!
Through His church the manifold wisdom of God is being made known to the universe and to the heavenly realms!
He gives us boldness and access to draw near to God!
He dwells in our hearts!
His love for us surpasses knowledge!
He's able!
He's able to do what we can ask or think!
He's able to do all that we can ask or think!
He's able to do more than all we can ask or think!
He's able to do far more than all we can ask or think!
He's able to do far more abundantly than all we can ask or think!

That's my King! Are you asking and trusting Him to do far more abundantly than all you can ask or think today?!

He's the only One Who ever walked in a manner perfectly worthy of His glorious Father!
He's humble!
He's gentle!
He's patient!
He bore perfectly with all others in love!
He eagerly maintained the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace!
He's the One Lord!
He gave us the one true faith!
He gave us the only baptism!
He's over all, through all, and in all!
He ascended on high, led a host of captives, and gave gifts to men!
To be like Him and to be full of Him and to grow up in every way into Him is the whole goal of the Christian life!
He's true righteousness!
He's true holiness!
He only and always spoke the truth!
He was angry and did not sin!
He never gave any opportunities to the devil!

That's my King! Are you following in His footsteps today?!

He shared with everyone in need!
Not one corrupt word ever came out of His holy mouth!
He only spoke what was good for building up and gave grace to those who heard!
He never grieved the Holy Spirit!
He put away all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, slander, and malice!
He's kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving!
He loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God!
He's a child of the light Who is the very light of the world!
He's filled with the Spirit!
He loved the church and gave Himself up for her!
He sanctified her!
He cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word!
He will present His bride to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing!
He's the great, glorious, precious, perfect, luscious, loving, saving, satisfying, benevolent, beautiful Heavenly Spouse of His blood bought bride the church!

And there's no One like Him! I wonder if you're satisfied in Him alone today?!

He obeyed His parents perfectly in all thoughts, words, deeds, and feelings!
He obeyed all His earthly masters with fear and trembling and with a sincere heart!
He's strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!
He put on the whole armor of God!
He triumphantly stood against all the schemes of the devil!
He more than conquered all rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers over this present darkness!
He defeated all the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places!
He fastened the belt of truth!
He put on the breastplate of righteousness!
He put on the readiness given by the Gospel of peace!
He took up the shield of faith in all circumstances to extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one!
He took up the helmet of salvation!
He took up the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God!
He prayed at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication!
He kept alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints!
His love is incorruptible, unsurmountable, incomparable, incomprehensible, and inconceivable!

That's my King! That's my King!
