In this passage we are reminded that we are God's chosen ones and we have no fault in His eyes. This is an amazing fact that is really difficult for us to wrap our minds around. We belong to Him and nothing we do in this life can change that. As long as we are in relationship with Him we will live with Him in heaven forever. We are blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we belong to Christ. This is amazing!
Questions for further thought:
1. How does it make you feel that you have been chosen by God?
2. Does this fact change the way you live each day of your life? How?
Challenge: Spend some time in prayer this week thanking God for choosing you to be His child. This is an amazing gift that there is nothing we can ever do to earn it or live up to what it really means.
