Thursday – Ephesians 1

1.  Paul begins his letter with a hymn of praise to the Father for choosing us, to the Son for redeeming us, to the Holy Spirit for sealing us.  Ponder 1:4-6. When did the Father choose us to be his?  What makes it so hard to comprehend to think that God chose us and we did not choose him?

2.    A seal is a mark or a stamp of ownership.  When did the Holy Spirit mark us with God’s seal?

3.  At the end of chapter 1, Paul states the glorious truth that Jesus has all the world under his feet and is ruling it at God’s right hand.  What make it so hard to accept that truth sometimes?
