Ephesians 1:4 "For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight."
It is essential that every Believer comprehends that they have been chosen by God (through their receiving Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior) and also that they have been chosen for a divinely inspired purpose (our DESTINY). If you never realize that being "chosen" by God is because He has a unique plan for your life, then you will not remain aimless and without focus in your walk with Him. We are reborn for mission!
PAUL LISTS SOME OF THE BLESSINGS OF BEING CHOSEN BY GOD:
- Redemption through the Blood of Jesus
- Forgiveness of our sins
- Lavish grace given as a gift to the children of God, along with godly wisdom and understanding
- The making known of the mystery of God's will
- Access to and outworking of the plans and purposes of God
- A living hope in Christ
- Our surrendered lives become a praise of His glory
- Inclusion in Christ through the truth of the Gospel of salvation
- Marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit, guaranteeing our inheritance
What a glorious God, who not only chose us and sealed us with the Holy Spirit, but He who also blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ!
