A Short Study of Ephesians 1:12

“That we should be to the praise of his glory.”
(Ephesians 1:12)

Everything our covenant God has done in time for His people He purposed from all eternity to do it.

He chose us before the foundation of the world, called us by the gospel in time, and will keep us till He takes us to where He is.

We can ask “why” all we want, but the Word of God tells us.

“To the praise of the glory of his grace.”
(Ephesians 1:6)

Any good work we do, any spiritual fruit we bear, and if we bring any glory to the blessed name of the Lord Jesus it is; “That we should be to the praise of his glory” (Ephesians 1:12).

We are kept from the time we first trusted Christ and will be preserved until we step from this world into the next when we will be conformed into the image of The Lord Jesus.

Why?

“That we should be to the praise of his glory…the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.”
