Continuing on from our last study. Note the title they are given. ‘Ye blessed of my Father.’ Heaven is the result of the Father’s eternal blessing. The child of God has been blessed of the father in that He chose them in eternity, Ephesians 1:3-4. He has called them by the gospel, Romans 1:7.
Now we consider two more blessings.
Cared for. 1 Peter 1:3-5. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
Carried home. Luke 16:22. See Luke 24:51. Two words have common root.
We will be taken to Heaven in the same manner as Christ.
This is but part of the blessings of the father which are ours!
