"Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him in love."
(Eph 1:4 NASB)

Even before the world was made, God had already chosen us to be His sons and daughters through our union with Jesus. He could see through all the ages of time and He chose all that would accept His Son to be holy and without fault before Him. He didn't wait to see if we were going to be good enough. He was totally confident in His own ability to qualify us and love us.

The Message Bible says: "Long before he laid down earth's foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love."

God knew that everyone who would accept Jesus as Lord and would be born again was going to qualify. Not because of our works or right behavior. Jesus is the one who got all the works and behavior right. God sent Jesus to prepare the way for us so we can be holy, free from all evil, because of how much He loves us. So now it is important that we know what Jesus knows. We are blameless before God in Jesus.

Today's Thought to Take With You:
I was chosen by God a long time ago to be holy and without blame in Christ.
