Foundation of the World


FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD (Jn 17:24)

“The foundation of the world” refers to God’s act of creation. “Before” the foundation of the world, goes even further to the past eternity before God “created the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1). According to Saint Paul, God the Father has blessed us in Christ and “chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blemish before him” (Eph 1:4). “He saved us and called us to a life of holiness. This did not depend on our merits but his generosity and his initiative. This calling was given to us before the beginning of time in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim 1:9). So, even before creation, God chose his faithful through his Son’s redemptive plan. Jesus remembers the love he received from the Father even before the creation of the universe.
