August 25, 2016 – Ephesians 1:6-7

Ephesians1-6-7So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. Ephesians 1:6-7Have you ever seen the hole in the ground known as The Grand Canyon?  It is large and created by our Lord God.  Have you ever looked over a large body of water, so huge you can see the curve of the earth?  And you wonder what keeps the sea from splashing out of its place.  Have you ever wondered how long time is?We were born into forever, in the image of God and He gives us a choice of where we spend eternity after we leave this earth.  He gives us a choice.   Everything ever created tells me about the kindness and glory of God and His great love.  He watches over us with Father-Love.  In the morning when the sun shines, I see blessings He gives me.  When it rains, I see the refreshing of the earth and it gives joy to my soul.  When I see the stars and moon at night, I know they are God’s nightlights to protect me and guide me.God sent His Son, Jesus – The Prince of Shalom (Peace and more), to be a bridge of love to God for me to cross.  Jesus is the Light of the World and God’s will to cleanse us from sin.  This enables us, though filled with sin, to be sinless in His eyes.  A mystery.God’s kindness and love is eternity deep, wide, long and high.  Larger than the ocean we see, wider than Grand Canyon and bigger than the universe.  Whom will you follow?He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding. God has now revealed to us his mysterious will regarding Christ—which is to fulfill his own good plan. Ephesians 1:8-9
