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! –

We all have faith. Something or someone we rely on, and it is usually ourselves, a false faith that cannot deliver for we are not God. We do not have the power to bring into being anything or maintain anything in and of ourselves. We all love, but mostly, predominately ourselves, and self love is selfish, that is why thee are so many arguments among us, we always want what we want and tend to use others for our own selfish gains. Hope. We all have hopes but these are more the hope of a gambler, a hope of chance, a wish so, but no firm assurance of certainty which Hope in god brings. But when He begins to work in us for His good pleasure, changes come about. {Read Phil 1:6;2:13.} Changes us, then from the inside out. Our thinking as it is being renewed according to His Word influences the choices and actions we make in accordance with Godly living.- {Read Rom 12:2, Phil 4:8, 2 Peter 1:3}. Our faith, reliance upon Him grows and our love is choices to deny ourselves to prefer others for their highest good, seeking or demanding or expecting nothing in return. And doing it for Jesus sake.”Ourselves your servants for Jesus Sake.”-{2 Cor 4:5; Read Phil 2:3-5}/

As His chosen it is manifested in a life of faith, love and hope anchored in Christ and it is WITNESSED by others to such a degree that OTHERS see you life and turn to God and offer Him THANKS. Why Thank Him? Because of what is being produced is His Work, so to Him be the glory and thanks!

There is EVIDENCE that they belong to God and it is not in their PROFESSION of faith but in their PRACTICE of FAITH.

It is possible to have no voice to communicate and yet PRODUCE EVIDENCE that we are HIS PEOPLE by

“…your work produced by FAITH,”

“…  your labor prompted by LOVE,

 “…your endurance inspired by HOPE in our Lord Jesus Christ.

CHANGING LIVES, not instantaneous perfection but a new direction in who you are living for is MANIFESTED so that others  give God THANKS for the evidence that you are one of His chosen ones, whom He has chosen for Change as changing lives are testifying to His reality at work in and through them in their faith,love and hope!

Chosen For Change is Seen in the changing lives of the Chosen
