Read Ephesians 1:11-14
When you think of people who have made promises to you… have they been specific or general promises? When my kids were younger, I tried making general promises… so as to not necessarily become pigeon-holed into doing a certain thing at a certain time. However, as they got older, they caught onto my ways and would try and nail me down for something specific.
God makes many promises throughout the Bible. On Sunday, we talked about the fact that some were specifically given to a certain person or people… while others were given for a larger group or everybody.
In Ephesians 1, Paul reminds all of us that God has a plan for us. That plan includes not just being sealed by the Holy Spirit and having a secured inheritance in the heavens… but challenges us as we put our faith in Christ, that we would be to the praise of His glory.
What are some of your favorite promises that God has made to you? Remember that He loves you, wants to spend time with you, and wants you to talk to Him every day.
