Those who know me know that it is really hard for me to choose a favorite of almost anything. However, I really have to say that Ephesians is my favorite book in the Bible. And there are SO MANY good ones!
This morning as I was reading Ephesians 1:1-14 again, “IN CHRIST” stood out. It is clear here that He is the key to all of God’s work in us. In Ephesians 1:1-14 alone there are 10 references to being in Christ or to the things God has done for us being done in Him or through Him.
Everything is summed up “In Christ” (verse 10). He’s the one that makes God’s plan for us happen and make sense.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who:
- Blessed us
- Chose us
- Predestined us to adoption
- Bestowed grace on us
- Redeemed us
- Forgave us
- Lavished grace on us
- Made known His will
It really just doesn’t get much better than that!
