Adoption by God’s grace

“4For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.” – Ephesians 1:4-6

Just as some parents choose to adopt children, God chose to adopt you.  God chose to adopt us into His family, not because of anything that we have done.  It was not out of obligation.  He did it out of love for us.  He loved us so much that He paid the ultimate price of His son’s death on the cross.  You are not a mistake, God perfect will is for you to accept Jesus into your life.  How cool is that?
