Ephesians 1:1-7New Living Translation (NLT)

Greetings from Paul

This letter is from Paul, chosen by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus.

I am writing to God’s holy people in Ephesus, who are faithful followers of Christ Jesus.

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

Spiritual Blessings

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.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. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.

 Dear Father, May I always be a faithful follower of my Lord Jesus Christ. May God give me grace and peace. I praise God, the Father of my Lord Jesus. God has blessed me with spiritual blessing, and I am united with Christ. God loved me even before he made the world. He chose me in Christ to be holy. I am thankful that God decided in advance to adopt me into his own family, and he brought me to himself through Jesus. This gives God great pleasure. I praise you, God, for your glorious grace that you poured out. You are rich in kindness and grace, Lord. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
