We are chosen ... to be His

"Long ago, even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the wonderful kindness he has poured out on us because we belong to his dearly loved Son." - Ephesians 1:4-6 NLT

chosen before time
by the Lord God above
chosen to be
a child of the King
you and me
and him and her
adopted into His Kingdom
through the
shed blood of His Son
and settled for eternity
adopted into His family.

His family --
or may not
your spouse
your children
your brother or sister
your cousin
your nephew or niece
your uncle or aunt.
His family --
all ... everyone
who professes
the Lord Jesus
as their Savior
who is
to the call extended
and follows
and still obedient,
abiding in Him,
He abiding in us.

selected personally
by the Lord God
to be a vessel
of His love
first choice
second choice
There are no favorites
in God's Kingdom
There is, however,
the best choice
for this time
this moment
The present.

to serve
the Lord God Almighty
to serve with gladness
of heart
it was His Choice
to send His Son
His Choice
to die to you
His choice.

Why should your choice
and mine be any less?
