To the saints who are in Immanuel Baptist Church in Chicago,

Grace to you

and peace

from God our Father

and the Lord Jesus Christ.

PEOPLE:

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

who has blessed us in Christ

with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,

even as he chose us in him

before the foundation of the world,

that we should be holy and blameless before him.

In love he predestined us for adoption as sons

through Jesus Christ,

according to the purpose of his will,

to the praise of his glorious grace.
