You Are Chosen
“You are chosen” ~1 Peter 2:9a
Eighth grade. Gym class. School-yard pick for Dodgeball teams. Can you spell torture? I still can taste that feeling of rejection as the remaining choices dwindle. Ah, even the girl with crossed eyes is picked before me! Please, God, don't let me be last. How does this still bother me? A zillion years later.
Being chosen is important. No one likes rejection. How awesome would it be to hear those words from the lips of Jesus Himself? Peter did. He was among the first hand-picked by the Lord to be part of the inner circle of trusted followers. I wonder if he was thinking about that when he wrote these words. Did he feel special?
But guess what? We are ALL chosen! By THE Chosen one, Jesus Christ. He has called us all…some listen and some do not. HE, the Creator of the Universe, chose ME! He chose YOU! Selected us to be part of that inner circle that He calls ‘friends’. I find it so interesting that the Bible uses almost every family designation - we are also brothers, siblings, children, the bride of Christ. It shows us how intimate that relationship can be.
He loves us SO much, all the dirt and grime included. It doesn’t matter what you've done or who you’ve been; He has already chosen you. He wants you. YOU! Get to know Him and there is a 100% guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Who am I that the highest King Would welcome me I was lost but He brought me in Oh His love for me
I am chosen, not forsaken I am who You say I am You are for me, not against me I am who You say I am
