"he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will"
Have you ever noticed that no matter what we do..somehow we are always our own worst enemy?
It's true that we've all made mistakes in our lives but somehow we still cannot fully understand or comprehend God's love and the grace he sent us through his son.. We cannot fully accept it when we try to understand it but when we overlook that concept and instead remind ourselves that Jesus died for us because of unconditional love toward us all..then we can accept it in our hearts..we won't ever be able to convince our minds to understand or accept the grace that we've been given..but Jesus died because of love for us so we should accept his grace for the same reason..because of love!
"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose."
Grace is not logical..so stop trying to figure it out as being that way!
To offer us grace was a decision out of love by God's son..it wasn't something that he was ordered to do, he had a free will but still he chose to die for our sins though he was perfect and without flaw..unlike we were, we didn't deserve to be forgiven or offered grace but still he loved us so much! which is why we should stop trying to figure it out and understand and accept that Jesus loved us and forgave us! Jesus loves us so very much! Don't think logically when it comes to his grace..don't try to figure it out..simply accept that he loves you and simply serve him because of how much he loves you and for who he is!
