His Eternal Purpose
Ephesians 3:11

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord,” Ephesians 3:11 NASB

God had an eternal purpose and plan that was accomplished and completed by Jesus. That purpose was to provide reconciliation and redemption to people from all nations and races through faith in Christ. Jesus carried out everything necessary for the salvation of all people who trust in Christ alone through faith alone. God graciously purposed and planned from the beginning to unite all believers, both Jews and Gentiles, into the church as one body in Christ under the Lordship, the authority and rule, of Jesus.

Christ Jesus my Lord, in You alone do I find salvation and forgiveness from my sins. I surrender my life to Your Lordship and to service in Your church.
