Ephesians 1:3-12
-- God and Father of our Lord Jesus, “He chose us in Him”; “before Him”; “He predestined”; “according to the kind intention of His will”; “to the praise...of His grace”; “the mystery of His will”; “according to His kind intention”; “which He purposed”; “according to His purpose”; “after the counsel of His will”; “to the praise of His glory.”

Ephesians 3:10-11
-- God has an “eternal purpose” or a “purpose of the ages.”
