We Are Chosen In Him

We Are Chosen In Him

Eph 1:3-4 ” Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: ”
The understanding of the Father’s everlasting love through which He unleashes His grace to us result in thanksgiving onto Him and make us strong and bold in our walk with Him. It also gives boldness to enjoy everything made available to us in Christ.
Today, we are made to understand that God our Father has chosen us in Christ Jesus from the foundation of the world, i.e. we became His elect.
This is not by our works, but by His determinate counsel born out of His love for us, even before our existence on earth, and this we became by His grace towards us through the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We can see from the passage above that He lavished on us all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus because He chose us from the foundation of the world. This connotes that our Father predestined us to be blessed in Christ Jesus and He has blessed us forever.
Another reason why He chose us in Christ Jesus is for us to be holy and be without blame before Him in love. There is no holiness and blamelessness ( perfection ) outside Christ Jesus. We have been privileged by grace through faith to be in Christ Jesus and this has made us holy and blameless before the Father because of His love for us. This means that we are accepted by Him.
This understanding will make you enjoy all the Father has provided for you in His love and make you bold in your fellowship with Him without the sense of guilt, fear or condemnation.
Note this, there is no curse for everyone chosen in Christ Jesus from the foundation of the world. Our Father will never curse us, neither will the curse of anyone come to effect over us, because we are the blessed of our Father.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you that I am yours. You chose me in Christ to be yours forever. Nothing can snatch me away from your grip. I thank you because I am wise in enjoying all the blessings you have freely given to me. I thank you because I am made holy and blameless in Christ Jesus. Amen.
