Give Praise and Thanks

Ephesians 1:5-6
In love (God) destined us for adoption to himself through Jesus Christ, in accord with the favor of his will, for the praise of the glory of his grace that he granted us in the beloved.

Many times when I read the words of St. Paul, I have to re-read them and re-read them to let the meaning sink in…because his words are sometimes so profound. Just ponder in your hearts what he said. We were “destined” to be with God through Jesus…in this relational flow of total, unconditional love; Destined because of the “favor of his will.” There is nothing we have to do to earn it. It’s grace! Just accept it. That is truly Good News! So take a moment…and bask in that understanding!

Suggested song of the day– “God Is” on the Give Praise and Thanks album.
