  • What blessings do we enjoy by living at this time in redemptive history?
  • How does this passage encourage you to praise God the Spirit for all He has done for God’s people?
  • What blessings of salvation are you especially thankful for today?

Other passages to consider: 

Gen 3:15; 12:1-3; Isa 35; 52-55; Jer 31; Ezek 37; Dan 8:13-14; 9:2; 12:4-13; Mt 11:11; Lk 24:25-27; Acts 2:14-21; 3:21; 1 Pet 1; 2 Pet 1:21.

Other passages to consider:

Gen 12:6-7; Lev 18:24-25; Deut 9:4-5; 11:29-32; 27:1-4; Matt 27:45-50; Rom 5:6-11; Gal 3:13-14; Eph 1:3; 1 Th 5:9-10.

  • What are the blessings of being a child of God?
  • Why do you follow Christ?  How should you respond to this truth?
