Epehesians 1:5-6 is rendered so beautifully for us in The Living Letters Paraphrase of the New Testament:
(5) His (God’s) unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into His own family by sending Jesus Christ to die for us. And He did this because He wanted to. (6) Now all praise to God for His wonderful kindness to us and His favor that He has poured out upon us, because we belong to His dearly loved Son.

Presence Matters Most! No Invisible People!
