1 – From the Foundation

  1. From the foundation of the world, from the time God spoke and said, “Let there be light.” From the time the universe was founded, there were already many things established.
  2. Ephesians 1:4 TLB Long ago, even before he made the world, God chose us to be his very own through what Christ would do for us; he decided then to make us holy in his eyes, without a single fault—we who stand before him covered with his love.
  3. In order for us to be holy and without any faults like that verse says, we have to be washed clean and that can only happen by the blood of Jesus.
  4. Jesus was perfect and without any faults. Because He was perfect, He could offer Himself as a sacrifice for our sins, since He had no sins of His own that needed cleaning away.
  5. In dying for us, He paid the price for our salvation, our gift of being perfect and clean and holy so that we can be with God, now today and forever.
  6. 1 Peter 1:20 says that God chose Jesus for this purpose long before the world began.
  7. It was all there from before the world was formed, God’s love for you, God’s plan for you to be His child, and God’s plan for you to be with Him and loved by Him forever.
