Reading: Ephesians 1:9-10
With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment – to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

Thought for Reflection: This week we have been thinking about God’s Grand Design, overflowing from his lavish grace and love. The temptation is to stay at marveling at his plans for us, but that is just the start of a plan that so much bigger. His plan is not just to bring us to him as his children, but to bring all of creation back to him to restore all things in one ‘family’ under the loving rule of his Son Jesus.

Prayer: Grand Designer, give us a bigger vision of your salvation than that of just ourselves. Help us, like you, to work towards the completion of your Grand Design, a world united in and by your love.
