Chosen

Whatever I will become will be what God has chosen for me.”  -Elvis Presley

With God it doesn’t matter which side of the tracks you’re raised on, how much money you make a year, or who your friends are.  God doesn’t care what you look like, how old or young you are, or how good or bad your resume is.  Throughout history God has chosen ordinary people to do the extraordinary.  God chose David, a shepherd boy to be king.  God chose Elisha while he was plowing in a field to be a prophet.  Jesus chose a group of fishermen, a tax collectors, and societal nobodies to be disciples that would change the world.  It didn’t matter what others thought of them, because God had chosen them.  If God did it then for them then He can do it now for you.

Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? (1 Corinthians 1:28-29, MSG)

  1. What a sigh of relief we can breathe when we figure out that God chooses the team, we just swing the bats. As always, good read!
