John West says:- “I don’t say that out of a sense of triumphalism but rather as a reminder that when things go really badly in our lives – by which I mean that life seems to totally fall apart – we as Christians are still blessed, in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. That isn’t just a matter of “Pie in the Sky when we die.” Rather it is a heavenly reality that plays out in our day to day lives, here and now. So, Before events turn for the worse, let’s allow the truth of Ephesians 1:1-14 to sink in, to shore us up and prepare us to count our blessings.”
