“For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:26-31)
Today, as I wrap up this mini-series on why God choose us, from, I want us to look at how the Bible brings these verses out. God looked down from heaven and He chose us in spite of us. Isn’t that great? We are chosen by the Great “I Am” to be a co-partner with Him, to help people and share His message of eternal salvation. God could have just done it Himself, but He chose to work through us to let people see the light.
That’s why we can never boast in ourselves, because we know who we are. We know where we came from, so our boast is always in God. As we looked at David, Rahab and Joseph these last few days, we could have looked at so many more in the Bible that started off badly, yet God took them on a journey and made something great out of them.
So today, don’t put yourself down. See yourself the way God your Heavenly Father sees you, “IN JESUS”! That’s why He sees you blessed, because Jesus is blessed. That is why He sees you healed, because Jesus is healed. Start seeing yourself the way God sees you and never forget from where you came, and yet, always remember where you’re going. Enjoy the ride, He brought you this far, He’ll get you to the finish line.
Heavenly Father, You have gotten me to the starting gate and I know that You will get me to the finish line. It’s not about me, it’s about You, Christ in me, the hope of glory. Thank You for the precious gift of salvation. Your love and forgiveness have changed my life, and I desire to show that same kind of love and forgiveness within the relationships around me. Fill me with Your Spirit and instruct me by Your Word, so that I can live like Jesus. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
