Today begins Week 3 of the “Made For This” series and devotions. We will walk through the book of Ephesians next, as we continue to consider God’s purpose for us. Paul (the author) begins this letter to another church in the 1st century with a reminder that God is intentional and personal in his creation.

“Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Ephesians 1:4-5

Pause for a moment to picture God’s thoughts and emotions as he prepared to create the world and each person who would live in it. How do you react when you imagine God creating you with intentionality and love? How can you remember that God loves you and has chosen you today?

If you want to follow the full reading plan, read Ephesians 1:1-8 today.
As we read through the book of Ephesians over the next few weeks, take a moment to watch this 9-minute video that gives a visual overview of this book.
