How wonderful to think GOD CHOSE… YOU.

To Be “Chosen” means to be ‘Elected, Selected, Marked out, Called out one’s,’ by God for God, independent of all but God! God’s right, God’s prerogative. God’s Mercy. God’s love!

“Ekloge”- (from eklegomai  in turn from ek = out + lego = select, choose, eklegomai meaning to choose or select for oneself,…God’s “choice of you” both refer to God’s selection of believers. In the passive sense ekloge refers to God’s selection for a purpose or task.“- {preceptaustin commentaries}. God’s choice…To select for oneself, and to select for a purpose or task.

The Sovereign choice of God is used of Israel- ” For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.” -{Deut 7:6}

“The Lord did not set His affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the Lord loved you and kept the oath He swore to your ancestors that He brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commandments.” – {Deut 7:7-9}. They were not chosen by God because of ther merit or potential But because the LORD chose to set His love upon them and  because of His faithfulness!

 God Chose Abraham -{Gen 18:19}; God Chose David -{1 Sam 16:12}. God chose Jeremiah- {1:4-5;}; God Chose Jesus, “Look at my Servant, whom I have chosen. He is my Beloved, who pleases Me.“- {Luke 4:18}. God chose Paul-{Gal 1:15}; God Chose His people- {Eph 1:3-4;}. God chose… YOU, “In Christ.” -{Gal 1:15;3:26}

I heard of a young college student who struggled with was he one of God’s chosen… and he suffered greatly with that thought, teaching for a long time. Indeed I think the question is “Have you ever repented towards God for the forgiveness of sins and placed your faith in Jesus Christ?” “and He said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day,and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations,…”-{Luke 24:46-47}. ” I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus “ -{Acts 20:21}. This is where you would start with a lost person.

“Chosen of God,” is  for a believer, it is a Family Jewel in the blessings God has bestowed upon His own, who see God and what He has done and is a family heirloom so to speak!  For the young man, someone could have brought him to the Scriptures and shown him the verses below and more such and looked for the Scriptural evidences. Not perfection, but a new direction, a changing that the LORD brings in the lives of His own and given him peace of mind and heart and assurance! How do you know if “God Chose you?” Is it a ‘feeling?’ Is there a Big “C” that appears stamped on your arm for, “Chosen?” so that you and others will know? But we can know, and as we will see and it is revealed in His Word. God wants us to know as it EXALTS Him,and indeed is a crushing blow to the sinful pride of humans as it is God being God and behaving as God independent of all else and no person’s slave to do their bidding. He is no person’s puppet! One response as Ephesians 1:3 teaches is to “Bless, Praise, SPEAK WELL of Him…” Celebrate Him!  How would you answer that young man’s question? So together let us consider how and also to use as “fuel” for our faith and praise to Him!


1. –  GOD HIMSELF Chose you for… HIMSELF.

” Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,  just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, ” -{Eph 1:3-5}. “You Did Not Chose me But I CHOSE YOU.“-{JOHN 15:16}. GOD DID THIS…for YOU!

Thank You LORD!

8. – GOD HIMSELF Chose you to… SUFFER for Him.

 This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel.  I will show him how much he must suffer for My Name. {Acts 9:15-16}.“…For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for Him, ” – {Phil 1:29}; “Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. “-{2 Tim 3:12}. GOD DID THIS…for you!

Thank You LORD!


We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.  For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that He HAS CHOSEN YOU..”-{1 Thess 1:2-4}.  What are the evidences of being CHOSEN BY GOD… CHANGING LIVES that caused others to thank God for what they WITNESS namely

A.- “…your work produced by FAITH,”

B. –“…  your labor prompted by LOVE,

C. – “…your endurance inspired by HOPE in our Lord Jesus Christ. ” These are THREE EVIDENCES of a person that  has been CHOSEN by God… a CHANGING LIFE! -GOD DID THIS…for you!

 Thank You LORD!

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves With compassion,  kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”- {Col 3:12-13}. GOD DID THIS…for you!  

Thank You LORD!

How Do You Know OBJECTIVELY IF GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU?

You give evidence of God’s Chosen one!  


10. – GOD Chose you Before You were BORN;

“But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by his marvelous grace ” -{Gal 1;15 NLT}. GOD DID THIS…for YOU!

“…just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. ” -{Eph 1:4}.  GOD DID THIS…for you!

Thank You LORD!


“In LOVE He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His PLEASURE and WILL—to the praise of His glorious GRACE, which He has freely given us in the One he loves”   “- {Ephesians 1:5-6}.







He Chose you – is linked with His Love, it brings Him Pleasure, His Irrevocable will, and for His Praise and demonstrates His grace, and He freely does so, and because of His Great Love is why!  Chew on that, and fall down in your heart and give Him, praise, Glory and Honor for such great Love He has lavished upon you. “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),“-{Eph 2:4-5}. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!…Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see him as He is.”-{1 John 3:1-2}. Consider The LOVE of GOD for You! Consider The GOD who loves…you!

Consider not just the Gift but the Giver. Don’t separate the Gift from the Giver!

“Chosen,” This blessing as it is called in Ephesians chapter one is addressed to those who belong to the LORD Jesus. It is a family jewel, an inheritance to be treasured, admired and ultimately as verse 3 shows we are to BLESS Him for, Praise Him, SPEAK WELL OF HIM WHO HAS DONE THIS and “…live a life worthy of the calling you have received.“-{Eph 4:1}.  It is also meant to produce spiritual Stability in us as it is what GOD has done, and is irrevocable, nothing or no one can change what He has determined.. And He determined we, indeed YOU, should be ‘marked out’ By Him and For Him. This should take your breath away at such amazing Grace, unmerited favor, kindness, love lavished upon you  as His child! And such you are. – {Read 1 John 3:1-3}. Celebrate Him! Share Him… THANK HIM.
