He Chose Us

Ephesians 1:4  “ For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.”

God chose us. He chose every single person who would believe in Him before He created them. What powerful words!  These words have tremendous power regarding the wisdom and plans that God has for us.  His power is so great that He knew the present even from the beginning.  And, He knew the end before the start.  

God exists outside of time, and He created time. He is the only being able to know all things because He created all things!

A friend of mine described it like this:  When you get to pick your piece of cake at a birthday party, you don’t pick the sad, small piece. No, you pick the best and the biggest. God is no different. He picked you. That means He wanted to know you.  When you realize how much God loves you, that can give you a new sense of self-worth.

We are to be “Holy”, which means to be “set apart”. And because of God’s wisdom, power, and love, our proper response as His children is to live in obedience to Him. 


The end of the verse tells us that not only did God chose us, but it shows us how He sees us. When God looks at us in the light of what Jesus did on the cross He sees someone who is holy and without blame. He doesn’t see all the areas where you’ve fallen short or messed up. He sees you and He likes what He sees. To Him you’re great. To Him, you matter.

So when you start to get down on yourself or experience a day when you feel like no one cares, remember that God does. He chose you before the foundation of the world. Also, remember that to God you are Holy and blameless. There is nothing that God is holding against you. Jesus’ blood was enough to pay the price for sin and we are now free to live an abundant life in God.
