Have you ever wondered if you were one of the “Chosen Ones”? A better question is, did God choose people to be a “Chosen One”?
When I was growing up I went to church every Sunday. Unless we were out of town or I was sick. Daddy would come downstairs and yell, “Get up get up in the morning.” I tried that with my girls and it didn’t go over to good. Funny, daddy would wake us up, but he didn’t go to church. But he goes every weekend with me now. :-)
I didn’t mind going to church. I have said before growing up I felt this special feeling in my heart. I can remember there was a mental handicapped young man here in town that almost everyone made fun of. I felt sorry for him. He lived just a couple blocks from our house. He would come over, riding his bike, and I would be in the garage with a Bible trying to teach him the ten commandments.
I was NOT a saint. I was just trying to do what God wanted me to do.
I was and I’m still NOT perfect. I still stumble on what I am supposed to be doing.
Although, I still have that “Special” feeling in my heart. The feeling I pray you all have some day.
As I was young I had heard about “God’s Chosen Ones”. Oh how I hoped I was one.
As I grew up and especially sent Kelsey passed away, still have a heard time just typing that, I wondered if I was one of His Chosen One.
I ordered a couple study guide books, one for Ephesians and the other for Philippines. I started with Ephesians. The very first chapter the very subject of “God’s Chose Ones”.
You see, God does NOT play favoritism. He doesn’t love one person more than another. He wants ALL of us to live in eternity with Him.
2 Peter 3:9
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
“In God’s sovereignty He chooses us and He predestines a purpose for us, but He also gives us a free will.” (Free will: where God gives all people the choice to follow Him)
So you see my friends, it is my opinion that we are ALL the “Chosen Ones”. We, just need to choose to follow God.
So for all my life, the special feeling in my heart, the believing I was a chosen one, is real. Not just because God Chose me, but I also Chose Him.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
I pray that if you do not know Jesus, you ask him to come into your heart. I pray, that you have that relationship with him, that I have. I pray that we all see each other HOME one day.
