TNIV Scripture for Wednesday, August 27, 2008 [Ephesians 1:3-6]
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will--to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
Paul wrote Ephesians to tell about God's awesome grace and how it can reflect in your life as you continue to walk in it through the grace exchange. As you put off your weaknesses and put on God's grace (wisdom, strength, courage, ability etc.), as an ordinary person, you can live an extraordinary life.
Blessed you in heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ
Chose you before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless
Predestined you for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ
Freely gave you His glorious grace
