I see the central theme in this passage as being the happiness (Blessedness) of God to bless a people (us) in Christ. The blessing (in Christ) is explained with 3 statements: He chose us in Christ (for the purpose of being holy before Him); He predestined us for adoption as sons in Christ; we have redemption and forgiveness of sins in Christ. Notice that all actions performed here are on God's part and not ours. This is all done "to the praise of His glorious grace" and "according to the purpose of His will".
