Read: Ephesians 1
Big Idea: God planned our redemption by choosing us to be His children before He made the world. He gave us our destiny ahead of time, adopting us as His sons/daughters by Jesus Christ. We are accepted in the Beloved! He has given us every spiritual blessing – a staggering thought. He has purchased us with His own blood to the praise of His glorious grace! By faith, we are sealed by the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 1:7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
