Ephesians 1:11-14 The Message
It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.
Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us,
had designs on us for glorious living,
part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.
It’s in Christ that you, once you heard the truth and believed it (this Message of your salvation),
found yourselves home free-signed, sealed, and delivered by the Holy Spirit.
This signet ring from God is the first instalment on what’s coming,
a reminder that we’ll get everything God has planned for us, a praising and glorious life.
