The Fathers joy

Ephesians 1:5-6 speaks about the glorious truth that we are adopted. Paul says that this is something that is ‘in accordance with his will and his pleasure’. The Father wants us to receive it – it brings him pleasure. A gift that is given with joy but is rejected or ignored by the one to whom it is given does not bring pleasure but rather sadness. We can bring joy to the Father right now by rejoicing in the wonder that he sees us as his children.
