THOUGHT OF THE DAY

God Chooses You
written by Nina Smit
March 04 2013

 God chooses you to be his child, and He made this unlikely choice thousands of years ago - even before He created the world. When God chooses you, it is a choice with a difference - you are not chosen because you are cute or clever or gifted; you are not chosen at the expense of someone else either, because God chooses everyone who wants to be His child. If you belong to Him, it simply means that you have already been chosen by Him. ‘But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,' John wrote in chapter 1:12 of his gospel.

However, before God could choose you as his child, Jesus had to be willing to pay the price for your sin on the cross. If you have not often been chosen by others, know that God chose you specially to belong to Him. You are not only unique and special to Him, but He also equipped you with a special gift by which you can help to make this world a better place. God does not choose you to be idle, but to play a positive role in the world. ‘For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them,'

Paul writes to the church in Ephesus (Eph 2:10). Don't delay any longer to start doing this!

Take Hold of your Dream
August 11 2013 | It's okay to dream of having a better house, a nicer car, a higher standard of living.  But at some point, instead of just saying, 'Bless me,' we need to be able to say, 'Lord, use me.  Help me fulfill my dream so I can be a blessing to others in your kingdom.'... ...more ›
