Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [6/8]

Passage: Ephesians 1:1-10
Verse: Ephesians 1:7-9 (NIV 2011)
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,

Do you remember how special you felt when you were chosen for something?  Maybe it was for an award or maybe to be a part of someone’s team.  Well, we have been chosen by God to be a part of His team… to be set apart and to be holy and blameless in his sight.  According to His pleasure, will, and love, through Jesus Christ, we became heirs with Christ.  May we understand the will of the Father.  May we be obedient to those things He has called us to.  May we feel the love He has for us.  May we remember to thank Him for thinking of us and for choosing us.  Be blessed today. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
