on being the father's daughter

But because of his great love for [me], God, who is rich in mercy, made [me] alive with Christ even when [I was] dead in transgressions — it is by grace [I] have been saved.
And God raised [me] up with Christ and seated [me] with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to [me] in Christ Jesus.

—Ephesians 2:4-7, NIV
