just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
Ephesians 1:4 NKJV
What a packed verse!
Isn’t it great when you are chosen to be on the team? God has chosen people to be on His team. How do you know if you are chosen? You chose Him! Yeah, kind of crazy. But, you also know if you see fruit in your life (Galatians 5). You also know if you endure until the day you come face to face with Him. When did He chose you? Before the world was created.
What should our lives look like? We should be holy, separate from the world. We should love the things God loves and, likewise, hate the things He hates. As His followers, we should also be without blame. We should be living how God wants us to. We should be reading His Word and living how it tells us to. You and I need to remember that He watches over us because He cares for us. We should live so that all the world can say is that you love God and it shows in your actions, because you love those around you like God would.
How do others see you?
