5. And it gave him great pleasure!
Ephesians 1:5 and 6 “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.” (NLT)
These verses made my day! I love the way the New Living Translation sometimes knocks me over with the rewording of a familiar passage. Adopting me and bringing me to Himself gave God great pleasure! There is only one response that I can have to that fact: (v.6) I want to praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to Jesus.
What can I do today that will show God how much I want to bring Him great pleasure?
May I bring You great pleasure today, Father! I want to bring joy to Your heart as You have to mine. Amen!
