4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. Ephesians 1:4-6
If you are a Christian; it is because God chose you. Jesus told His disciples, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you” (John 15:16). And for each of us who have received Jesus Christ as our Savior, we discovered that He chose us. This confuses many people because they realize that we have the ability to choose, and that is true. But God who knows all things, knows what we will choose; and He doesn't pick losers. He picks winners.
You may say, “but that isn't fair? What if God didn't choose me?” Have you accepted Jesus Christ? If so, then He chose you. If you haven't accepted Him, do it and you will find out you were chosen. If you don't want to accept Him, why do you care if you were chosen or not?
As we come closer to the New Year, I hope that each and every one of us will make the commitment that in 2013, Jesus Christ will be the center of our lives, so that we can walk in His word, His will, and His way for our lives. Take the time to start fresh in the New Year. Make a commitment to get into the precious Word of God. It could change your life forever! I hope that you all have a Simply Heavenly weekend. God bless you!!!
