“God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure. And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth. Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.” Ephesians 1:9-11 NLT
God has a plan and purpose in all He does. In Christ, His Son, our Lord, He has purposed redemption for lost mankind. Nothing takes God by surprise. He knew that we would sin and fall into the snare of Satan before He made the world. He loved us so much that He made a way to redeem us from the slavery of sin's prison. He has a master plan to restore all things in the end. Although things may appear to be out of control sometimes, we can rest assured that it's all in His sovereign hands. He has given us a free will to choose to accept His plan of salvation or to reject it. Those who receive Christ Jesus are adopted into the family of God and receive an eternal inheritance. What is your choice? He has chosen you! Will you now choose Him? Embrace the love of the ages and let Him be Lord of your life. He is the only hope to escape the condemnation and eternal destruction that awaits. Why reject the only lifeboat that will pass this way? The choice has been left up to you.
Prayer for today: Father, in Jesus name, I accept the Great Redeemer of all mankind as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for rescuing me from the eternal wrath that will befall those who reject the way of redemption. Thank You for loving me. I am utterly amazed!!
