who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began
Acts 9 tells the story of Saul’s conversion. This story reveals that it is God who saves us, and that He can save anyone who He wants, no matter what they have done before. Through this story we meet another man, Ananias, who goes to lay hands on Saul so that he will regain his sight. Even though Ananias was afraid because of how Saul had previously treated Christians, he went because he trusted that God would use both of them for His own purposes.
God created everything. Everything we see, hear, feel, taste, and that exists was created by Him. Not only did He create everything, but He created everything perfectly, including humanity. He created mankind in His very image and likeness to reflect His worth. All of creation was made just like He wanted and designed it to be. To His delight, God looked at everything He made and declared that it was good. All creation exists for God, is good, and was created to bring Him glory.
