For Those Who Hated Him

The wonder is not only that he gave his Son but that he did so in this way, by sacrificing the one he loved. It is astonishing that he gave the Beloved for those who hated him. See how highly he honors us. If even when we hated him and were enemies he gave the Beloved, what will he not do for us now?

Chrysostom - Homily on Ephesians 1.1.8
Refer to Ephesians 1:7-10
