God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and his Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ.
May God give you more and more grace and peace. 1 Peter 1:2
God chose me. God chose you. I respond to God’s grace by being an obedient disciple…although even as a disciple I make a mess out of life! But the order in which this happens speaks volumes to our theology of salvation. God is the initiator we are the respondents. It is never the other way around. Please take a moment and let the reality of these words soak into your spirit: “God chose YOU!”
God give us more of your grace and peace!
