As we close out the “You Are” series, I pray that you know who you are in the eyes of God!
- and Chosen!
Yes, dear friends, the Lord chose you! He loves you, and He has chosen you to further His kingdom.
You Are Chosen
The ESV Study Bible gives this explanation of the chosen race. It is “God’s grace rather than human choice is the ultimate explanation for why some people come to faith and others do not. God has elected (“chosen”) some to be his people, therefore no one can boast of being included.”
We are called to “proclaim the excellencies of God who called us out of darkness and into his marvelous light.”
So friends, whether you are brand new in your faith, or you have been a faithful follower for years, you have been chosen! You are to proclaim all that God has done in your life.
He has brought you out of the deepest, darkest pit.
He has snatched you away from the enemy and into His loving arms.
That, my friends, is something that needs to be shouted from the rooftops!
