After election, the next spiritual blessing listed in Ephesians 1:3-14 is that of adoption. Believers are adopted as sons of God through Jesus Christ the faithful Son. We are given a share in the rights and privileges that Christ earned, and we even have the promised inheritance of glory to look forward to. Ephesians 1:5-6 especially focus on the fact that God adopts us because of his love for his Son and his love for us. Now that we have been given this new relationship we ought to respond with the same sort of love for the Son and the same love for one another that the Father shows.
