God’s Eternal Purpose
Did you know you were part of God’s eternal purpose? From creation to today, you are part of God’s plan from the beginning. “11 According to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him” (Ephesians 3:11-12 NKJV). All that Jesus did was for you. First, that eternal purpose is about Jesus. Could God have done creation different—not putting a tree in the garden? Maybe, however, there needed to be a way that we could have freewill. He didn’t want more angels or robots. He wanted people created in His image who could chose to love and trust Him or not.
In addition, knowing some wouldn’t trust Him He completed His plan through Jesus. Second, God didn’t just have a plan just for the plan’s sake. He accomplished it for you. You were the object of this eternal plan. For that reason, we have confidence in God through faith. Simply by believing we can go to God with any need because we have access to Him. We don’t have to make an appointment, and wait in the waiting room. He is always available, instantly.
