God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake.” 1 Peter 1:20 NLT
Jesus was the "Chosen One" even before the world was created. That is a deep thought! “Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.” Ephesians 1:4 NLT “And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered before the world was made.” Revelation 13:8 NLT God loved us so much that He made a plan of salvation even before creation came into existence. Love like that is incomprehensible!!! In God's foreknowledge, He saw the fall of man and the resulting fall of creation beneath his command. He gave us our free will and knew that we would choose to sin. All the while, He loved us so much that He made provision for our redemption. That is love!!!
"For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NLT
