He Made Us to Be Sons of God

(Ephesians 1:4-6)

Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim

God chose us before the creation of the world
and blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heaven
because, once we belonged to His Son,
He planned to love us, just like He loved His Son.
On the one hand, He chose us
so we could obtain the status as God’s children,
and the result was that He adopted us.
On the other hand, it was so we could stand before
God’s purpose and requirements, for
He wants to make us holy and blameless.
Becoming God’s children
entails the responsibility of proving
that one takes after God’s characteristics.
Ultimately, these are those who truly thank and glorify God
for His great love and amazing grace on earth.
Unlike other people,
it will clearly be shown to the whole universe that
God elected them and made them into His children,
that is, they were the sincere ones of the Church of Christ.
