Ephesians Series - Part III - He Adopted Us!

Galatians 4:4-6

The Christian’s salvation, expressed in election, predestination and adoption, is the result of the sovereign, unmerited grace of God and not due to anything in us or anything outside God Himself.  It flows from God’s own pure goodness, and originates in the freedom of His own thoughts and the loving counsel of the Trinity.

As the Apostle Paul meditated in Ephesians chapter one on how God chose or elected sinful men, women, boys and girls before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless.  As Paul pondered how “in love” God determined beforehand to adopt them as His own children with the view of bestowing on them all the rights and privileges of a full-fledged son, he declared that these blessings were "to the praise of the glory of His grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved".
