(KJV.) EPHESIANS 1:3-5:
(3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
(4) According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
(5) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.
Brethren, we give thanks to our Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, for his goodness and mercies that endures forever: his earthly blessings bestowed upon our lives and spiritual blessings, in store in heavenly places in Christ; in agreement to how believers were chosen before creation of this world; (Jeremiah 1:5); set aside, as peculiar people, a holy nation, (1 Peter 2:9-10); to worship our Father with all their hearts, souls and bodies, serve Jesus Christ as we serve one another, enjoy his providential race, walk in his righteousness and love one another as ourselves; for the fact, that we are foreordained from our mother's womb, before birth; and afterwards, accepted as sons and daughters into the body of Christ, as joint heirs of eternal kingdom by the grace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, in accordance to good pleasures of our Father and his intended purposes for our lives: therefore, believers are called into the holiness of our Father, let us not defile ourselves with lusts of the flesh, but remain in holiness, resist all evil temptations of fornication and adultery. our vessels are sanctified, set aside for his glory; with that in mind, let us remain sanctified to the Holy Spirit to dwell richly within our hearts, be prayerful, watch what may invade our vessels of honors and cast those things away. (1 Thessalonians 4:-7); endeavor to walk in his righteousness, adhere to his words, listen carefully to his voice, be blameless, beware of temptations of the enemy; show love, care about people from all races of life, regardless of their ethnicities, nationalities and skin colors; accommodate people, accept them as they come unto you, show hospitality, for, the earth is the LORD's and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. (Psalm 24:1): always leave rooms for benefits of doubts, for the fact that humanity is the same, forgive others, that our Father will also forgive our trespasses. (Matthew 6:14); and live peaceably with all men, until Jesus Christ comes back again soon to receive his believers into life everlasting. Be blessed forevermore. Amen!
Dearly beloved, if we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior; automatically, we are saved, belong to the body of Christ and are blessed of our Father, and inherit eternity as joint heirs with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; there are no hidden requirements; blood of Jesus, settled it all, it is all done; therefore, let us not fear no evil, worry or have anxieties over cares of this world, but rather, give our hearts unto Jesus, trust him, allow the Holy Spirit to flourish within our souls, watch what we do, how we carry ourselves among unbelievers, as loyalties of this world, we cannot indulge ourselves in all things of this world, know who we are. remain as significant personalities; also, let our actions, behaviors and utterances portray who we really are in the world of darkness, exemplify ourselves in Christ, be shinning lights of his glory, enlighten pathways of others into life forever and evermore: let us smile, be lights of the world! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) Romans 8:29-30: /For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified; and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
