God Chose the Church

(Ephesians 1:3-4)

Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim

Can we at last be victorious in the struggle of our faith life
and safely enter the Kingdom of Heaven?
Life itself is definitely not an easy journey.
Moreover, our fallen character
is not helpful in
maintaining a holy and solid faith
but only brings constant challenges and crises.
Do we each have to run this race alone?
Or is God standing nearby
to support and guide our lives?
Is our journey of salvation
shaping with the church of the Lord Jesus?
Or is it an individual task relying on
our own abilities and capacities as saints?
Is our born-again life in Christ
an everlasting future of glory and joy?
The passage of today, Ephesians 1:3-6,
opens up spiritual insight
that can bring answer to all these questions.
It guides us into
the eternal, absolute, and endless plan of God,
who created us and the heavens and the earth.
