1 Peter 2:9 KJV But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:
To choose is to carefully select from some alternatives. To carefully pick out the best option suitable for whatever purpose we have in mind.
God doesn’t call the qualified but qualifies the called. 1 Corinthians 1:27. He chooses the ones that can be worked on. People that had been condemned by the world. They are not wise ones. The foolish ones are made, designed and fashioned to God’s desired taste for His glory. Most people believe God most times calls the uneducated but this isn’t true. He calls even the ones that are at the peak of their careers. When they are called. Their family, relations, and friends will things answering the call of God is the most stupid thing to do. I’m not only talking about being called to be a minister now. Even the call to be saved, to be redeemed, to be a part of the chosen, to be born again.
The chosen are separated unto God. Leviticus 20:24. They are the called out, the selected few, the saved and sanctified. They have no portion in the world but with Christ. There is an inheritance for the chosen in Christ. Because they are separated unto God. They have spent time with Him. They become like God. In fact, they are gods. Psalm 82:6. Mortal men will find it difficult to understand them because they are spirits just as our God is Spirit. John 4:24.
The chosen are called to be God’s representatives on earth, to be God’s sons. John 1:12. They are to reign and rule, to have the life of God, to be life giving spirits, to have the creative ability and power of God.
Matthew 22:14 KJV For many are called, but few are chosen. There is a thin line between the called and the chosen. It’s the decision. The decision to join the chosen transforms the called to the chosen. If you haven’t made the decision. Please do now!
Everyone has a calling but not all are chosen.
Let us pray: Father, help me not to turn down your offer.
