God's Grace - Lavished Upon Us!
Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood
poured out on the altar of the Cross, we're a free
people - free of penalties and punishments chalked
up by all our misdeeds.
And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free!
He thought of everything, provided for everything
we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans
he took such delight in making.
He set it all out before us in Christ, a long-range
plan in which everything would be brought together
and summed up in him, everything in deepest heaven,
everything on planet earth.
Ephesians 1:7-10 The Message
