You are chosen by God.
Did you hear me? Let me say that again just in case you missed it.
YOU are CHOSEN by GOD.
God has picked you! And you are not the last pick, like when team captains choose players for their dodgeball team and you get picked last (that may or may not have happened to me in the past).
The Bible tells us that you are God’s very own possession. Can you think of your most valuable possession? God thinks of YOU like that. Like a treasure, something that is cherished, cared for and wanted.
He loves you, He chose you, and as a result, you can show others His goodness because he has called you out of darkness and into his glorious light.
“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.”
- 1 Peter 2:9 NLT
Lord, thank you that you have chosen me as your very own possession. Thank you that you called me out of darkness and into the light. Help me to share your goodness with everyone around me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
