  1. God, the Father is the source of our grace and peace and of our spiritual blessings in heavenly places. These blessings are because he chose us before the world was created to be holy and without blame before Him in love. 1-4

  2. Things have happened in our lives that were pre-marked of God to bring us to enter into conversion and adoption as children by Jesus Christ. This is to the intent to bring praise to God out of the glory that will come out of the grace shown to us from God which praise from us to God makes us acceptable to God because of the purity that is in such praise through the fear of God that is focused in God’s holiness, mercy and grace. 5-6

  3. This focus is in redemption through the blood of God in Christ through the riches of God’s grace that causes wisdom and prudence to abound toward us from God. 7-8

  4. God has in this wisdom and prudence revealed the mystery of His supreme desire which is that all creation and beings be brought together in oneness of fellowship with Christ and with each other. 9-10
