In love lhe predestined us2for madoption as sons through Jesus Christ, naccording to the purpose of his will . . . (Ephesians 1:5)

making known3to us the mystery of his will, naccording to his purpose . . . (Ephesians 1:9)

In him we have obtained zan inheritance, ahaving been predestinedbaccording to the purpose of him who works all things . . . (Ephesians 1:11)

Forget for a moment that 'P' word that we Christians love to argue over and is found in 2 of these verses and just dwell on the fact that we are redeemed for His purposes, for His will . . .
