Scripture

 

Ephesians 1:4-8

4 just as he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before him in love.

5 He destined us for adoption as his children through Jesus Christ, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6 to the praise of his glorious grace that he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.

7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace

8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and insight

Ephesians 2:4-7

4 But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us

5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ -- by grace you have been saved --

6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,

7 so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness towards us in Christ Jesus.
