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.
Whenever you read the words of St. Paul, you have to re-read them and re-read them to let the meaning sink in…because he is so deep. But just think…God “destined” you and me to be with Him through Jesus…out of total unconditional love. It’s purely based on grace. There is nothing we have to do to earn it. That is truly Good News! So take a moment…and bask in that reality!

Love the suggestion to re-read Scripture. Slowing down and really focusing and meditating on a verse or a few verses can really help us discover the richness that is there. Be blessed today and bless someone else!
Thanks for your comment, Shelly. Many blessings be unto you!!
