Bible: Eph 1:4-11

1:4 For 1  he chose us in Christ 2  before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished 3  in his sight 4  in love. 5  1:5 He did this by predestining 6  us to adoption as his 7  sons 8  through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure 9  of his will 1:6 to the praise of the glory of his grace 10  that he has freely bestowed on us in his dearly loved Son. 11  1:7 In him 12  we have redemption through his blood, 13  the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace 1:8 that he lavished on us in all wisdom and insight. 1:9 He did this when he revealed 14  to us the secret 15  of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth 16  in Christ, 17  1:10 toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up 18  all things in Christ – the things in heaven 19  and the things on earth. 20  1:11 In Christ 21  we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, 22  since we were predestined according to the one purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will
