God Chose you:
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. (Ephesians 1:3)
Even before the ink on the blueprints of the universe was dry, God chose you to be part of the family. In an exuberance of grace, God decided that you'd be home free before you were born, that you'd be found before you had a chance to get lost; this means you already have "every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places," which means there isn't a single bright, shining angel that has anything better than you have. There is no harp-strumming, bliss-bearing, joy-filled resident of heaven that's got anything more than is already yours.
