Journey Through Ephesians, #2
Our hope is Christ is to be a praise for God. Read Ephesians 1:9-14.
He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory. In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation-having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.
Ephesians 1:9-14 NASB
God has made known to us the mystery of his salvation and we who have accepted it are now to be the praise of the glory of God. Are we praising God and do we lift him up as a demonstration of all that He has done for us?
