Devotional: In Christ, We Are - Chosen

Christian Devotion about being chosen by God



Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. - Ephesians 1:4 (NKJV)

We are chosen by God.

The Amplified bible puts it this way: Just as [in His love] He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world – so we would be holy (that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven) and blameless in God's sight.

He has selected you as His own. He has hand-picked you to be His own. You are so very special to God – much more than you can comprehend, because even before the foundation of the world, God had you in mind and had a marvellous plan for your life.

Pause for a moment and meditate on this truth of who you are and give thanks to God for His infinite love.

But we should and are [morally] obligated [as debtors] always to give thanks to God for you, believers beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through the sanctifying work of the Spirit [that sets you apart for God's purpose] and by your faith in the truth [of God's word that leads you to spiritual maturity]. It was to this end that He called you through our gospel [the good news of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection], so that you may obtain and share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. - 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14(AMP)

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special] people for God's own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. -1 Peter 2:9 (AMP)
