Blessed is the man!  Not so the wicked!

Ephesians 1:3, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ!”

Christian! These are some of your choice spiritual blessings:
Election by the Father.
Redemption by the Son.
Regeneration by the Spirit.
Justification by faith.
Forgiveness of every sin.
Reconciliation with God.
Adoption into God’s family.
Glorification and eternal life in Heaven!

Ponder the ‘names’ given to believers in the Scriptures:
“sons of God,”
“children of light,”
“children of obedience,”
“children of promise,”
“children of the living God,”
“children of the resurrection,”
“children of their Father in Heaven!”

While the whole world besides are:
“children of the devil,”
“children of darkness,”
“children of disobedience,”
“children of the wicked one,”
“children of Hell,”
“children of wrath!”

Consider some of the believer’s prospects in the eternal world:
“Now the dwelling of God is with men,
and He will live with them.
They will be His people,
and God Himself will be with them and be their God!
He shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death,
neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain.” Revelation 21:3-4

While to all others, there is nothing but “a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire about to consume the adversaries!”

Consider the unbeliever’s propects in the eternal world:
in outer darkness,
in the lake of fire,
where their worm does not die,
and the fire is never quenched,
where the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever,
where there is no rest day or night,
with Satan and his demons,
in the furnace of fire where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth!

Psalm 1:1-6
Blessed is the man . . .
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
or stand in the way of sinners,
or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season,
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers! 

Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous!

For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish!”
