You Were Chosen

You were chosen.

Before the foundation of the world. Before time and space existed. Before all of creation. You were on God’s mind. He was thinking about you.

You were chosen.

According to the purpose of his will. His purpose. His will. It was his purpose, his good pleasure, to choose you. It was his desire to choose you. It was his delight to choose you.

You were chosen.

To be holy and blameless before him. To have your sin and guilt and shame removed. To be declared righteous in his sight. To live as one set apart unto God. To live for Him. To one day stand before him holy and blameless forever.

You were chosen.

For adoption as sons. To be God’s beloved child. To be part of God’s family. To receive an inheritance forever.

You were chosen.

In Christ. Through Jesus Christ. All because of Christ. As we are united to Christ.

You were chosen.

To the praise of his glorious grace. That God might be praised, exalted, lifted up, worshiped, glorified. For his grace toward us, his underserved favor, his unearned blessing, his glorious gift of salvation for us.

You were chosen.
