56For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify his grace[f]for the same love he has for his Beloved One, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure! Passion
