I want you to notice this morning if you would, the pronouns that Paul is using:
HE chose us
To be holy and blameless before HIM
HE predestined us
For adoption to HIMSELF through CHRIST
According to the purpose of HIS will
Question… Who is HE?
YHWH- The Eternal God
Who is WE/US?
You and I
It is clear what message Paul is presenting to the church in Ephesus
as well as us this morning.
It is GOD- The eternal creator and sustainer, ruler of all things,
who Chooses US, not the other way around.
It is GOD who is the worker in this passage!
What are we chosen to for?
“That we should be Holy and blameless before Him.”
QUESTION: How many of you would say that you have been Holy
and Blameless this morning?
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
