“…just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world…”
Yes. There is more to that Scripture in Eph. 1:4, but this morning, I wanted to point out to you and to me that God chose us before the foundation of the world. If you’ve been wondering if you were chosen, if there has been any doubt in your mind if the gospel message is for you, if you weren’t sure if you were lovable enough for Him, then let this verse reassure you this morning…He chose YOU before the foundation of the world. And then He sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to ensure that Your salvation would be in place if you chose to believe.
Thursday night I went to visit an elderly man that I have befriended over the last few years. He is a precious man that has spoken encouragement and life into me over the last couple of years, and when I went into his house he said that his heart was racing with me being there because he was so excited to see me. When I left there that night I was in tears.
This man chose me. He chose to be my friend, to speak encouragement into my life, to want to be my friend; and when he saw me, his heart was literally racing with excitement. That says so much to me. I went there to see him because I love him, but I left there feeling so overwhelmed with love.
God chose us before the foundations of the world! He speaks life and encouragement into us through His Word more than any person could ever do. He sent His only Son to die so that we could be with Him for eternity. That’s how much He wants to be with us. Y’all! He wants us! We are chosen! If you have ever doubted it…let those doubts be erased now. He loves You!
