We know the phrase “you are chosen” very well, but do we really know the incredible blessing of being chosen and the great responsibility of being on G-d’s team? We all remember the days of our childhood when teams were being picked. We all hoped not to be the one left over. We all wanted to be chosen, to be on the team, to be included.
When Yeshua says, Follow Me – and we do, We are chosen to be on His team
Here are some words out of modern-day dictionaries telling us what it means to be chosen:
Chosen means to be selected, to be marked for favor or special privilege, it means elect, favored, hand-picked, preferred !!
What an amazing, joyous, incredible event to be chosen by the Lord.
