God put us into Christ, on His own initiative

It was always God’s intention to shower his glorious love on us.  He is the beginning and the end. He is the start of all things and the end of all things. God took the initiative and all we did was respond to his invitation.  It was his desire and passion that caused him to reach out and embrace us. We are the child he always dreamed of; we are the delight of his heart. We are God’s treasure.
