When in Bermuda Commercial School, we had a teacher, an old fashioned Methodist, who was intent on teaching us a subject beyond accounting, etc… She began each day with Scripture and prayer and required that we memorize some of those verses. Admittedly, at that stage of my life I was not “into” such thinking.

Shortly thereafter I heard the gospel and embraced Christ as my Lord and Master. Within a short period, I was reading through the Book of Ephesians, and discovered that I was a rich person. I desire that you be as wealthy as I.

“He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him.” (1:4)

“He predestined us (v5)

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, (1:7)

“The forgiveness of our trespasses according to the riches of His grace, (1:7)

“To adoption as sons through Jesus Christ Himself, (1:5)

“To an inheritance, (1:7)

And… After all those things, through His will, His purpose, I was sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise for HIS GLORY; and you? (Ephesians 1:1-13)
