Wordy 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 1:3-8

One of my favorite passages of Scripture.
