August 13, 2017

2 Thessalonians 2:13-15

13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord,
      because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through
      sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught,
      whether by word, or our epistle.

Ephesians 1:3-14

 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
      who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
 4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,
      that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,
      according to the good pleasure of his will,
 6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
 8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure
      which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ,
      both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose
      of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:
      in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession,
      unto the praise of his glory.
