Ephesians 1:7-10
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: that in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him.

In Christ, we have been purchased from the slavery that sin placed us in through the blood Jesus shed on the cross. We stand forgiven of sins because of the AMAZING riches of grace that not only purchased us, but blotted out our sins. The blood removed our sins from us as well as the chains that used to bind us. The blood was poured over us and we are no longer what we were because of our encounter with the Christ of the cross and the resurrection. With all wisdom, or the ability to see life from God’s point of view, He was given us insight and enlightened us the the great mystery of God saving us Himself, which was always His plan, set in motion before the foundation of the universe. With great pleasure, He has shared the Good News of what Jesus did in carrying faithfully the Plan of God taking upon Himself the responsibility to save His fallen creation. This plan will be fulfilled when the time is right and at that moment, He will return to make all things one, both on earth and in heaven and He rules as King! God, thanks for caring enough about me and help me to care about others so that I will share openly and often, the message of hope that freed me and made me His son. While You aren’t setting up Your kingdom yet, Please be King of me!
Jesus, the cross and the resurrection

Jesus, my strength when I am weak
