In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will (Ephesians 1:5).
Such a huge little phrase
Guess what? God didn’t choose you grudgingly.
God didn’t say to himself, “Oy ve, what a mess this kid’s made of things. I guess I’d better take him on board…sheesh, what a pain…fine, you’re saved. Now get out of my hair!”
He knew from the beginning that he wanted you. It gives him pleasure to call you his own. Thinking of you makes him smile.
Beloved, you make the Lord of the Universe smile.
Chew on that today.
Happy Friday, Beloved.
