Wednesday's Word

Eph 1:3-6 (ESV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved.

How wonderful God's love is. Look at verse 6 ... In love He predestined us for adoption is God's wonderous love for us, His creation, that He has chosen us out from the sinful world ..... from the beginning of even time...... to be His sons and daughters through the gift of Jesus' sacrifice. But, some will still ask why God would do that for us..... this verse tells us ...... according to the purpose of His will ..... we should not have to look any further for the reasonings of our salvation. God has a purpose to His actions toward His creation (us) and we should not muddy the waters of His glorious blessings through Christ so that we may pick apart the causes of our salvation. In the previous verses God clearly tells us that He chose us before the foundation of the world .... that He had it all worked out from the begining of all time..... before He even spoke the world into existance. How can we question His devotion to us, His children, when He continually blesses us through Christ.
