GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE
We are God’s chosen people. We are special to God, uniquely created by His hands. God’s love for us is unconditional. We are royal priesthood. This should cause us to shout right now! We are rich because our Father is rich. We have favor because of God’s favor. We have access to His throne of grace; we can come to Him just as we are and receive the blessings we need. No one can take that away from us. In Colossians 3:12, we find these words:
“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”
Here the writer speaks about the need to live as people of God, in other words, live as you are one of God’s chosen people. We should clothe ourselves with tenderness. In verses 13 and 14, the writer explains it further, saying, “Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.” We must live in accordance with the will of God. We are called to become like our Creator. Read this chapter when you get a chance. Then take some time, with a humble spirit, to look in the mirror, then know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you are a reflection of God, for you are chosen by Him!
