Ephesians 1:1-6 GW

1 From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by God's will. To God's holy and faithful people who are united with Christ in the city of Ephesus.
2 Good will and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are yours!
3 Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer.
4 Before the creation of the world, he chose us through Christ to be holy and perfect in his presence.
5 Because of his love he had already decided to adopt us through Jesus Christ. He freely chose to do this
6 so that the kindness he had given us in his dear Son would be praised and given glory.
