Bible: Ephesians 1:11-14

1:11 In Christ 1  we too have been claimed as God’s own possession, 2  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 3  on Christ, 4  would be to the praise of his glory. 1:13 And when 5  you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ 6  – you were marked with the seal 7  of the promised Holy Spirit, 8  1:14 who is the down payment 9  of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, 10  to the praise of his glory.
