Ephesians 1:3-8; Brian Doten
Being part of a loving, healthy family is one of the greatest blessings (gifts) in life. Paul begins Ephesians praising and thanking God for loving us, choosing us and adopting us into his own family through Jesus Christ. Paul says that God’s kindness, love and grace is “poured out on us through Christ.” Paul never stopped being amazed at God’s grace and kindness towards us, and that we are part of God’s family. We should never stop being amazed either.
