He Is Our Beloved Father

Ephesians 1:4-5
.. 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,

As followers of Christ, we have been born from above through faith in Him and have been adopted into the family of God.

We have been chosen by God and adopted as His sons and daughters.  Through adoption, we have a radically new relationship with God. 
He is our beloved Father.

May this relationship stir our hearts to worship
Him ~  our Father ~ with gratitude.

Today's Inspiration:
Our Daily Bread

Until Next Time

  11. Hello Mary!
    Firstly thanks for your visit and comment on my blog at the weekend and secondly thank you for sharing this wonderful passage of Scripture! My thought for today was 1 John 3 v 1 which is similar in that we are blessed beyond measure to think that God loves creatures like us!
    Glad to find your blog and following now!
