Praise God from who all blessings flow— 

the highest blessing Christ to know; 

in him before the world was done, 

in Christ I’m made a blameless one. 

My destiny—pure child of God; 

through Christ adopted though so flawed, 

the glory of his grace to praise— 

O wonders of amazing grace! 

Redemption, mine, through his own blood; 

my debt forgiven, guilt removed. 

A mystery, his will made known— 

all things in Christ summed up as one. 

Wise Father, help my heart to see 

your calling and this hope set free, 

my rich inheritance to gain— 

all through the power of Jesus’ name. 

Today’s Reading: Ephesians 1:3-8 NLT 

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 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. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
