Bible: Ephesians 1:10-14
1:10 toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up 1 all things in Christ – the things in heaven 2 and the things on earth. 3 1:11 In Christ 4 we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, 5 since we were predestined according to the one purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the counsel of his will 1:12 so that we, who were the first to set our hope 6 on Christ, 7 would be to the praise of his glory. 1:13 And when 8 you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ 9 – you were marked with the seal 10 of the promised Holy Spirit, 11 1:14 who is the down payment 12 of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, 13 to the praise of his glory.
