From memory…

16 06 2010

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God. To God’s holy people in Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus:

Grace and Peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us in the Heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ in accordance with his please and will –

to the praise of his glorious grace which he has freely given us in the one he loves.

In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.

With all wisdom and understanding he made known to us the mystery of God’s according to His good pleasure which he purposed in Christ –

To be put into effect when times reach their fulfillment, to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out all things in conformity with the purpose of his will, so that we who were the first to put our hope in Christ Jesus might be for the praise of His Glory….

That’s where I’m up to – Ephesians 1:1-12 – all done from memory 🙂
