CHOSEN


One of the wonderful truths about being a Christian is that God chose us before the foundation of the world. It means that even when there was no earth and human beings had not existed yet, God already knew us. The word "chose" on this verse means "being picked by someone." It is like being picked to be a part of a team or being chosen to get a college scholarship. It was God who did the choosing. Since we had not existed when He chose us, we were not chosen because of what we could do or offer to Him. God simply chose us because He loves us.


The reason God chose us was that He wanted us to have the most fulfilling life in this world. He wanted us to be holy and blameless, which means to be perfect and without sin. So how did God made us holy and blameless? God made us holy and blameless by taking our sin and put them on Himself and died on the cross for us. God knew before He created us and the world that He would send His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sin someday.


Is this mean that we will not sin after he chose us? No, not at all. We will still sin because of our sinful nature, but we can confess our sins to our Lord Jesus Christ, and God can forgive us. God did all of these things because we are important to Him. He loves us, and He wants the best for us. Let us be encouraged that if God had chosen us to be holy and blameless before the foundation of the world, and He died for our sins for our forgiveness, then we know that God is present in our lives. He cares about us, and all we have to do is to trust and follow Him.


As we pray this morning, let us thank and praise our God. Write down your prayer request and trust God that He hears them. Always remember that He is always closed to us.


Prayer:

God the Father, thank you for choosing me before the foundation of the world to be holy and blameless. Thank you for choosing me even when I don't deserve it. Please help me to trust and obey you. Please help me with (mention your prayer request) . In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
