To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him. – Ephesians 3:10-12
What was God thinking when He created us? Knowing what we do now; what we have become, the mistakes we make, the way we rebel and react what was He intention? Could He have expected that we would actually make it on our own? Unlikely. As the Creator, who better would know our limitations, our flaws and our faults? God knew there would be only one way that we might be saved.
From the beginning, He intended to provide us with GRACE. One perfect, unimaginable sacrifice that could purchase redemption: free, beyond price or our ability to earn. His expectation of us? Faith – to believe, accept and submit to His plan for us and fulfill our potential. As we examine ourselves, are we living up to His intentions for us?
