Chosen by God // 22-04-21

“But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.” 1 Peter‬ ‭2:9-10‬ ‭MSG

It excites me to know that I have been chosen, and not just that, but chosen for a high calling! That changes my whole outlook on why I am here. When I was at secondary school I rarely got chosen for anything great. In games I was often one of those poor kids left at the end that no-one wanted to pick for their team. And I meet too many other people who still feel worthless and overlooked, and yet Jesus is saying if you come to Him, not only do you get to be on the winning team, but you can know that you are not an afterthought but have been picked for the most important position that can change the world! He doesn’t reject you, He accepts you! When you understand that honour and the significant role you’ve been given, it makes you want to represent well. Lord, may I get that clear understanding of the high calling you have placed on my life. Help me to step up to be that person today. Amen 🙌🏼😊
