The primary thing that I am seeing is that God is to be blessed because he predestined us. This predestination shows his love for us and our response should be to bless him. Personal note: I am new to arcing and am quite uncertain about my technique and, well, understanding of arcing. I am open to the fact that my arc may be way off, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
