Word Filled Wednesday


All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 
 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure
So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.
He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. 
He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. Ephesians 1:3-7 NLT

Father, open our eyes so we may understand the confident hope You have given those You have called.  We are God's holy people, Your glorious inheritance.  Open our eyes to understand the incredible greatness of Your power for us who believe in Jesus.  This is the same might power that raised Christ from the dead.  Thank you for your amazing love, mercy, and grace.
In Jesus' name ~ Amen!

Many blessings,
