Med#4: Predestination: too much to fathom?
Ephesians 1:5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will..
We are, quite simply, predestined through Jesus; but, predestined for what and how? Consider the other PP’s (prepositional phrases) in verse 5 and again realize who you are and what you have as a believer.
1) Compare and contrast ‘chosen’ and ‘predestined’. Why both?
2) Does this fact humble you or compel you to ask for humility?
3) What does ‘adoption’ mean to you?
