For by Grace are Ye saved... it is the gift of GOD.

" The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power. " Ephesians 1:18,19

Thankful to the Heavenly Father for His great gift of salvation to me. 

Today, in my time set apart for memorizing verses from Ephesians 1, I found great peace. 

What great assurance to know that God chose me before the foundation of the world to believe on His Son Jesus Christ. Father, I thank you for revealing your Son to me.

A purchased possession, through the blood of His Son. I'm sealed through His Spirit... forever am His. 

Chosen of Thee

Thank you O Father for Thy gift of salvation,
In Christ we are holy and found without blame.
Ours are the spiritual blessings in heavenly places,
And humbly we bow with praise to Thy name.
Our adoption as sons was predestined before,
Thou loved us in Christ, and giveth all things.
Chosen by Thee, made children of God,
Our heart in adoration now joyously sings.
Twas your good pleasure that we would be saved,
The eyes being enlightened, made able to see.
Thou drew us to Thee and called us by name.
Redeemed, forgiven all glory to Thee.
Bought by the blood of Thy Son, Jesus Christ
Our inheritance in heaven shall not fade away.
Sealed with Thy Spirit, your promise to us,
Awaiting redemption for that glorious day.

May you too know the greatness of His power, His love, His saving grace.
