(Jeremiah 1 : 5 ; Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee : and before thou comest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet to all nations. ) God knew us before we we born , He knew us in spirit. He wanted all of us to share with Him , in His glory. But we have to pay a price , and the price is of our own free will , whether we want to live for Him or ourselves. God also had to pay a price for our own disobedience , and the price was to die in our place upon the cross. What a great price He had to pay for us. God is perfect, so He had to do everything perfect, before we could inherit the kingdom of His. All we have to do except what He has already done for us.
