We have often played this game. Two side are chosen with two captains. Now if you get chosen to be the captain that is the best. Then the captains select their team, if you are one of the first say two choices of the captain; you feel awesome. If you are one of the last; you know that people see you as weak in that kind of sports and you don’t feel that great about yourself.
To define Chosen is; the one who is the object of choice or of divine favor : an elect person. Selected or marked for favor or special privilege.
Wow special priviledge, I like that!!!
Chosen the movie has this line. Harvey Keitel: “There is something that is in us, that can make us do extraordinary things”. Jordan Renzo: “They say you were sent by God” Luke Mably :”I am just an ordinary man”.
Let’s see who is chosen by God.
Verse for Today:
9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. – 1 Pet 2:9-10
There are always two sides with God.
Not a people of God People of God
No Mercy Receive Mercy
Going to Hell Going to Heaven
Not a Christian Christian
Not a Disciple Disciple
Every person is either in the darkness or the light. There is no twilight zone.
