I chose you
John 15:16 – You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last.
I don’t even feel like I need to add much more encouragement to this verse.
Those two things are all you need to hear today: the God who created the earth, put breath in our lungs, parted the red sea, sacrificed His son’s life for our freedom, raised the dead to life and has done so much more, chose you – yes, you! – to be glorify His name. Not only did He choose you but He also appointed you for such a time as today. He made an appointment in Heaven to have you born into this family at this time, with these friends and this church, with that job and this incredible future ahead.
So don’t treat today, tomorrow or every day ahead as just ordinary days. They are days chosen and appointed by God for you to do good things in His name.
You are chosen and appointed by our King in Heaven. Walk with pride.
