In the beginning God created everything. But He wanted more than just everything. God wanted a being like Himself. A living person, complex like Himself. So man and woman were created. They were to multiply. God wanted a lot of love and company. Well, you know about what happened. Things got a little out of hand with the free will God gave. But! God had a back up plan...Ephesians 1:3-11... Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Before the world was made. Those whoever believed God's words were destined to become brothers and sisters of Jesus! Our Loving Father provided a way to keep His righteousness, and redeem us from the sins that we were likely going to commit. Why would He do that? Because we are all sinners. But, the perfect blood of Jesus washes us clean, and God will accept all who trust that He loves them. The mystery of God's purpose has been revealed to us. We have a glorious heritage. God has His family to love. We are God's children, He is our Abba, father. Full of mercy, grace and abounding in steadfast love.
