Chosen for the praise of His glory


“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: that we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.” Ephesians 1:11-12

When we trust in Christ for forgiveness and life, we have an inheritance in God’s heavenly kingdom, being predestined by God’s gracious will to trust in Christ and to be preserved in that faith through the hearing of the Gospel. This brings Him praise and glory for the salvation He has bestowed on us in Christ Jesus, our Savior.

We thank and praise You, O God, for graciously sending Your Son to redeem us and for choosing us to be Your own and bringing us to faith in Christ Jesus and preserving us in that faith through the hearing of the Gospel. Amen.
