“In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will – to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.”
God’s purpose and plan for us means that we are adopted into God’s family. Because of what God has done for us in Jesus Christ we are the sons and daughters of God. God has done this for us because it is his pleasure and his will that we be reconciled to him and have a close and intimate relationship with him. What does it mean to you that God’s purpose and plan for your life is that you be a part of the family of God?
