You Are a Wanted Child
… just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. Ephesians 1:4
- God the Father thought it
- God the Spirit wrought it
- God the Son bought it
Christians are God’s special chosen ones. Are you a believer? Then you are a wanted child. Your salvation didn’t “just happen.” You are “chosen … in the beloved.” Look at the verse in context: Ephesians 1:4-6—
… just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.
The Word of God is telling you that God chose you before the foundation of the world. Before He swung the stars into space, before He planted the seeds, before He built the mountains, before all of that, you were in the heart and mind of God. How special you are to God!
God the Father sent His Spirit into the world to select and sanctify His children for His holy purpose. We are utterly dependent upon the Spirit for our salvation. And we seek Him because He first sought us!
