“He is the one who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not based on our works but on his own purpose and grace, granted to us in Christ Jesus before time began,”
2 Timothy 1.9
God’s eternal purpose was formed “before time began.” It was granted to us in Christ, based upon his merit, not our own. Through him we received our calling to be his people.
What a marvelous thought that God’s purpose reaches beyond time and includes us in his salvation! Let every day become timeless grace!
