In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace. Ephesians 1:5-6
I praise You for Your amazing grace. When I think deeply about the truth of eternal realities, it is just overwhelming and stunning in every sense of the word. We aren't just free falling in the dark of this world, rather we are sons and daughters of God, heading for glory in Your light. You have existed throughout all of eternity, and as long as You have been God, You have loved us. And You will love us unto glory and forevermore.
It was that eternal love that You have always had for us that made You choose us. The adoption into Your kingdom is the highest privilege the gospel offers. You can’t get any higher than to be a son or daughter of God eternally, and one whom Jesus will call brother and sister. It’s an unspeakable, incomprehensible blessing to be granted spiritual life, to be freed from sin, and to be declared righteous in your Son, Jesus Christ. This kind of blessing given to me, just staggers the imagination and leaves me in wonder and awe of You. It truly is the grace of all graces.
For this I worship You, I praise You, and I thank You for this first and greatest blessing of being chosen by You to belong to Your awesome Kingdom. Please help me be bold and unafraid to share the gospel when opportunity arises; so that I may help others see the glory of Your Kingdom too by You grace. All honor and glory belong to You, Lord.
In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
