This week I’ve finally proposed to the woman of my life and being “Engaged” is really a blessing. It feels like we’re in “cloud 9” again (in our 8 months of being in a relationship). we’re so glad now that the Lord has brought us this far.
It was like when we we’re still lost and we don’t know him yet. We are not aware of His covenant and promises for us. The relationship we’ve entered after accepting the Lord Jesus in our lives. We now have our new identity, a new status, “Saved by Grace”.
He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness into a wonderful relationship with Him. He assures us and secures us not just with a promises but with a great covenant with Him bringing us into the greatest ride and journey of our lives that never ends. The greatest relationship we could ever have and enter in is to be that personal relationship with our dear Lord, Savior , Redeemer and Friend Jesus Christ.
Being chosen is one of the greatest feeling in life and at the same time being not chosen can be one of the hardest thing in life. I’ll never forget the many times I was not chosen. The times when I was still looking for my first job to get back to college. I’ve almost went to every fast-food restaurants in the mall near our house before and get dumped a lot of times. I wasn’t chosen to be a part of our Varsity club. My painting was not chosen to win an Art contest in our school. They picked somebody else and I was crushed. But that’s the way it works in our world, right?
To be chosen in this world almost always has to be in the expense of somebody else. Only one resume gets pulled from the stack. Only one employee gets the promotion. Only one athlete gets the MVP award. Only one girl is gonna get crowned home crowning queen. Only one student get the scholarship. Only one person is gonna get the engagement ring.
In our world’s social economy. To be chosen, means somebody else didn’t get chosen. Somebody wins while other people loose.
But its not that way with God. Here’s one of the coolest things about God. His love for Me does not come at Your expense. God’s plan for You does not come at my expense.
In God’s eyes, your chosenness, does not diminishes my life. rather it enriches my life and my life enriches yours and everybody else. So we don’t need to compete with each other. We can celebrate with each other because we are ALL chosen. We are ALL Dearly Loved by Him.
In this new life it doesn’t matter. if your a jew.
“In this new life, it doesn’t matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters, and he lives in all of us.” – Col. 3:10
“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, … for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” – Gal 3:26-28
In God’s eyes there are not ethnic class, It doesn’t matter whatever your gender is. How your physical appearance look like, your social standing, achievements and failures, your IQ, your talents, your bank accounts, your abilities , your surname or your looks.
None of that stuff matters with God. We are all chosen by God.
Even-though you may not be chosen by the world, you’re chosen by God.
Everybody can be chosen. Nobody can be rejected. With God there’s enough love for everybody.
