Ephesians 1:4

4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

1:4 Paul says that God “chose us” to emphasize that salvation depends totally on God. We are not saved because we deserve it but because God is gracious and freely gives salvation. We did not influence God’s decision to save us; he saved us according to his plan. Thus, there is no way to take credit for our salvation or to allow room for pride. The mystery of salvation originated in the timeless mind of God long before we existed. It is hard to understand how God could accept us. But because of Christ, we are holy and blameless in his sight. God chose us, and when we belong to him through Jesus Christ, God looks at us as if we had never sinned. All we can do is express our thanks for his wonderful love. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV.

How amazing it is to know that God had already chosen before this world was even created. But it has nothing to do with anything we could do to earn this gift. It is all because of His LOVE for us that we are saved.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and know Gods LOVE and GRACE through JESUS CHRIST is what allows us to have salvation thru repentance and forgiveness. by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
