Ephesians 1:9-14

9 God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure. 10 And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth. 11 Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.

12 God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God. 13 And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. 14 The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS

Q: Have you ever had a moment when the scriptures became real to you? When you received new life in Christ, did you feel like you had become alive again? What came alive inside of you in those moments? Where those revelations with the Holy Spirit?

Q: Why is it important to have revelation from God through the Holy Spirit and not just through spiritual leaders in your life? Can you live and be sustained solely on the revelations of other people? Or do you need to have spiritual growth through your own revelations given to you by the Holy Spirit?
