  Study Tools

Introduction

The key thought in chapter one is the wealth of

blessings we have as Christians. These spiritual

blessings that are ours because we have been adopted

into the family of God.

Chapter one lets us know that each person that is in

the family of God ahs been blessed. When we

communicate to God through prayer we will begin to

understand these blessings and the power they can

have over our lives.

Scripture

Prayer

1. He has Chosen Us verses 3-4

The doctrine of election cannot be fully understood,

but one can fully enjoy. It would be foolish to try

to explain away the mystery of grace. God did not

choose us in ourselves; He chose us in Christ, by

grace.

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many

wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not

many noble, are called.

27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world

to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the

weak things of the world to put to shame the

things which are mighty;

28 and the base things of the world and the things

which are despised God has chosen, and the things

which are not, to bring to nothing the things that

are,

29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.

1 Corinthians 1:26-29

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for

you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from

the beginning chose you for salvation through

sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,

14 to which He called you by our gospel, for the

obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 2:13-14

All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and

the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.

John 6:37

2. He has Adopted Us verse 5

Election refers to a person’s predestination. God

elects us to be saints set-apart ones, then

predestines that certain purpose in our lives shall

come to pass.

And we know that all things work together for good to

those who love God, to those who are the called

according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

3. He has Accepted Us verse 6

In ourselves, we are not acceptable to God, but in

Christ, we are made accepted.
