You are chosen by God


Romans 8:29:  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the first-born among many brethren. (KJV)

God knew in the beginning that some people would one day accept the Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour.  He knew there are going to be people from across the world who will one day invite Him into their lives.  In this present day scenario, the gospel is still being preached in many places around the world, and so many people are turning to Him after being delivered of their sicknesses, sin, and various other troubles.  To such people whom God knew would be transformed or accept Him into their life, He predestined for them to be conformed to the image of the Lord Jesus, His Son.  He did that so that His Son would be the first-born among many believers.

God is not demanding the entire world to be conformed to the image of His Son, but only whom he foreknew.  He knew that those whom He chose would one day surrender themselves to Him.  So all those who have the Lord Jesus in your life are already under God-ordained course of events for your life.  This is because you are predestined by God to be conformed to the image of His Son.  God wants us to put on Christ and be more like Him.  God wants us to show Christ through our actions/deeds and not just by our mere names.

Since we have surrendered our lives over to the Lord Jesus, let us live a life that brings meaning and purpose to our very existence.  Exalt God in everything you do.  Be conformed to the image of Christ.
