We see in this passage that we are adopted into God's family. We have redemption because of Jesus. We have forgiveness of sins because of Jesus. The question often rings - why me? The words 'predestined' and 'chosen' are hard for many. Ultimately, we are not God and there are things that we simply are not gong to understand. He has revealed to us that before the foundations of the earth, he chose us to be holy and blameless in his sight. It is God's free choice. Grace says I love you because I love you. Receive this gift. Rest in this gift. Enjoy this gift. Worship because of this gift.
