Even before he made the world,
God loved us and chose us.
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 eternal inheritance.
That’s a whole lot of promise in a small amount of space.
God saw you, loved you, put you in the world, and sent Jesus to save you.
He sent Jesus from there to here and took him back there. He planned for you there, placed you here, and is going to take you there.
That’s how much he loves you.
Praise God for what he has done,
is doing, and is going to do.
