Bible Notes

Ephesians 1:3-6 (16.01.18)

Ephesians 1:3-6 NIV
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. [4] For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love [5] he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— [6] to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

Sometimes with Paul’s writing it is ready to bolt it down like eating a meal in haste. This has it’s place, it helps us get a sense of the big picture. But today, stop, slow down, savour every word and phrase. There is so much flavour in this passage. Let the words and their meanings linger, and make the most of His love that is being poured out here. Then respond in prayer.
