Worship Through Praise: Praise the Father, Part 3
Passage: Ephesians 1:4
Jesus Christ knew all that He would have to endure to secure our salvation because He was there when the plan was formed. Before the foundation of the world Christ offered Himself up, which allowed the Father to freely pour out His love on those whom He chose for eternal life. How should we respond to God's choosing? By praising and glorifying this great God who rescues hardened and helpless rebels and transforms them into the image of His Son. We will all one day appear before God. Will you be found in your sins, or in Christ? Trust in Jesus Christ now, and submit yourself fully to God's purpose for your redemption, that you be holy and blameless before Him.
