He chose us in him before the creation of the world.
Ephesians chapter one is filled with thrill. It tells you that God has chosen you, adopted you, redeemed you, forgiven you, lavished his grace upon you, revealed his will to you, sealed you as his own, and given you the Holy Spirit as a guarantee of your inheritance.
Whew! That’s quite a list.
He put you in the world and sent Christ from heaven to save you—sent him from there to here, and took him back there; planned for you there, placed you here, and is going to take you there.
That is how much he loves you.
God’s ceaseless love deserves our ceaseless praise.
