Happy Friday Ladies!
I have decided I am done learning the Love series because after verse 7 it's not all about Love anymore. And if you remember the reason I was learning it was because in the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan, he had challenged us to replace the word "love" with our name because we were supposed to represent love to the world. So after the very first part of verse 8...Love never fails...there isn't any love talk left to be replacing my name with...haha
So today I am moving to Eph 1:4. This one came from last week's summer bible study series I am hosting at my house, "Duty or Delight?" by Tammie Head. It is a truth that we need to know without a shadow of a doubt so that we can be confident in God's love for us.
"For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight." Eph 1:4 (NIV)
Soak that in...he CHOSE us. We did not choose him. He chose us all along...knowing every sin we would committ, every bad choice we would decide...He knew all that we would say and do in life and still chose us before he even created the world. Mind boggling to say the least!
So live today knowing that God chose you FIRST...makes you smile doesn't it????
Let's hear your verses!
