1. God chose us because we are perfect in His sight because of His love for us. This embracing love is a constant comfort to us. God loves us, no buts and ifs. (Eph 1:4-10)
2. We are God's and we are designed to show His glory. We don't belong to our parents, not even to our spouse! God owns us and it feels so right! (Eph 1:11-12)
3. We are filled with the Holy Spirit. We just have to listen and believe that we are saved. (Eph 1:13-14)
I read the first chapter of Ephesians several times today and I can't help but feel grateful. Thank you Lord for blessing us more that what we deserve. You are such a generous God!
