"In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory." (Ephesians 1:11-14)
As we’ve been learning in our study through the book of Ephesians...we now know that God the Father created and chose each and every one of us for a specific purpose, that we may all bring Him glory.
He loved us so much that He was willing to give up what was most precious to Him—His only, Perfect Son. And Jesus, though He had a choice not to do this, chose to die for us, to pay the price for all of our sin and imperfection—so that we may be adopted and blessed as God’s children.
When we accept Jesus, we are officially SEALED by the mark of the Holy Spirit. And when that happens, no height, nor depth can separate us from the love of God. When the Holy Spirit lives in our hearts, we KNOW we are going home to Heaven one day! A happy ending!
