Sunday Thoughts: Bringing All Things Together

Posted: 01/13/2008 by that's Elbert in Christianity, Sunday Thoughts

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.

Taken from the NIV Bible, Ephesians 1:3-10

    To write so fervently from prison is amazing. Surely he thought the end of days was imminent. He was one tough guy.

    Thanks for sharing.
