I would like to ask for some feedback from any readers of this post: How does a verse like this shape your understanding of God? How do words like, holy, without blame, predestined, chosen, adoption, accepted, in the Beloved help you understand grace? Is this a passage you would stop and think about, or one you might skip over because it is hard to comprehend? For me, this passage helped to transform the way I believe and trust in God. What do you say?
