Lent – Thursday – March 31

Ephesians 1:3-6

God chose us “before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless before God in love.” Wow! Forever, God has loved us. Forever, God destined us to be God’s children. Forever, we will live with God in the freedom of forgiveness! These verses, and those that follow through Verse 14, overflow with praise for all of the unbelievable gifts of love God has given us. Even on our Lenten journey, it is good to be reminded that it is precisely because of this abundant generosity that we are dedicated to responding to it—in joy, in a renewed commitment to serve and with a life of praise!
We are in awe, O God, as we experience your steadfast, eternal love each day. Amen.
