Thought for Today!

Paul continues his introduction to this letter (a letter which is probably a circular and general letter to the churches in Asia):
“In love He predestined us for adoption 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,”
So: you were predestined IN LOVE, adopted (an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ),with the security that it is all according to His will and resounding to God’s praise.
Ephesians is unmistakably telling us that salvation is of God……and not of ourselves.
