In Ephesians 1:3-6 the Apostle Paul is trying to direct our minds to things much higher than the things of this world. He blesses (or adores/magnifies) God because God blessed each and every one of us in Christ. Not only do we have natural blessings in this world, but we have redemption, forgiveness, and eternal glory. These Heavenly things are in high places. And God chose us before the foundation of the world, predestinating us to be adopted into His family. We are to praise Him because we are accepted when we didn’t deserve it. This is what God our Father has done for us and His portion in our salvation.
