Ephesians 1:4 Even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world to be holy and without blemish before Him in love. (Holy Bible, Recovery Version)

God chose us. How did He choose us? God chose us by predestinating us, by marking us out. To predestinate is to mark out. God chose us to be holy for the sonship. The choosing of God’s people for them to be holy is for the purpose of their being made sons of God, participating in the divine sonship. (The Issue of the Dispensing of the Processed Trinity and the Transmitting of the Transcending Christ, ch. 1)

The way God makes us holy is to impart Himself, the Holy One, into us so that our whole being may be permeated and saturated with His holy nature. For us, God’s chosen ones, to be holy is to partake of His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4) and to have our whole being permeated with God Himself. This is different from mere sinless perfection or sinless purity. This makes our being holy, like God Himself in His nature and in His character. …We should not be common but different. In the universe God alone is holy. He is different from everything else and is distinct. Therefore, to be holy means to be one with God….To be holy we need to be one with God because only God is holy (Leviticus 11:44; 1 Samuel 2:2). (Life-study of Ephesians, ch. 3, by Witness Lee)
