Tuesday - April 1 - Tiffany

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Deuteronomy 27-28, Psalm 65, Luke 21
Today's scripture focus is Ephesians 1:11-14

 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,  in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.  And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,  who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
"You also were included". Aren't those fantastic words? Whenever I talk to my kids about Jesus and His sacrifice for us, I include their names in the story. Jesus died for THEM, for US, for ME, before the world even thought about our ancestors, God was thinking about us.
When we heard the message of truth, when we accepted God's love, we were given the Holy Spirit, and a guarantee of our inheritance TO THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY.
Once we accept Christ and His sacrifice, once we turn our life to Him, all we do should be to praise God and His glory.

Tomorrow's scripture focus: Ephesians 1:15-18
Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage passage: Deuteronomy 29-30, Psalm 66, Luke 22

It truly is all about Him and HIs glory, isn't it? How amazing that we are included in His plan!
