#5622 – Eternally Called

Good morning people who find your worth in the Father’s foreknowledge of your existence.

Ephesians 1:4-6 NIV 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.

No person is an accident or an after-thought. Every single person was chosen by the Father before the creation of the world. This is a huge statement and yet it is undeniably a scriptural truth.

God’s foreknowledge is a spiritual reality that goes beyond human comprehension. The realm of the Spirit is not contained to, limited by, or subject to the natural world. Everything created was exactly that – created – and it was created by a limitless and timeless God.

Therefore, it is one hundred percent true that God has always known you! And His foreknowledge of you came with a deep desire for you to live in Him through His Son Jesus Christ.

It’s God’s love that draws us to Himself. While He chooses everyone, adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ is reserved for those who accept the Father’s invitation. Therefore, it is not salvation itself that is predestined (because it’s God’s will that none should perish), but rather, it is adoption to sonship that is predestined for those who choose Him.

And the most wonderful and beautiful part of this adoption to sonship is that it is in accordance with God’s pleasure and will. It is God’s desire for you and I to be deeply loved by Him!

This is part of the spiritual blessing that we have in Christ.
