God Blessed by Men?

As I am preparing my sermon on Ephesians 1:3 for this upcoming Lord’s Day I came across a superb quote by B.B. Warfield. In Ephesians 1:3 the apostle Paul writes: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Warfield notes, “Paul blesses God because God has so highly blessed man; only, God blesses with deeds while man can only bless with words.” I thought this was a particularly nice way of reading the passage.
