Product Description

The first clause in this text says he for he has chosen us in Christ. In the Greek that word for means just as you are.  I don’t know about you but I am glad that God chose me despite me.  I mean if you are anything like me I got some stuff that I just can’t seem to shake.  Some stuff that I think about that make me even say boy what’s wrong with you.  Is there anybody else in here besides me that glad God’s choice is not based on what I do or what I say?  Doesn’t you that give you peace to know that God loves you just the way you are.  Are you glad you don’t have to do certain things for God to love you?    CHOSEN DOESN’T MEAN YOU WERE HAND-PICKED; GOD PICKED YOU FROM HIS HEART.   Aren’t you glad you don’t have to pretend or fake the funk when it comes to God?  God chose you just the way you are?  The writer says that’s a reason to shout!  I believe that why nobody could out praise David who would praise the Lord so hard that.  You see David recognized that God had chosen him despite fact that God knew that he was murderer, liar, and adulterer.   Before you get on your high horse and turn your nose else have been guilty of each of those things can’t park there gotta move on.

How do you know that God chose you just as you are?  It is right here in the text that goes on to say that he chose you in Christ before the foundation of the world.  This means that even before you were in your mother wombs you were chosen.  This mean that even before there was an Adam by which sin enter the world you were chosen!  In other words before you had before there was a reason to be chose you were chosen.  Do you know before in the beginning came into existence you were chosen.   The writer of the text says that’s a reason to rejoice! This text makes the claim since Christ is pre-existent and the scripture testify that all things were made by him and without him nothing was made that means in Him we are chosen.  Why because he is God and God has chosen Him. Christ who has authority and who all things find their existence in is God’s chosen.  Since we exist through Him we can rejoice in the Fact that we are chosen by God.  The story is told of a woman hearing a preacher speak on predestination said, “Ah I have long settled that point, for if God had not chosen me before I was, born I am sure He would have seen nothing to have chosen me for afterwards. When that man didn’t should you because he said that you were to moody isn’t it good to know that God chose you just the way you are. When that woman didn’t choose you because she said you were to controlling it good to know that God chose you just the way you are.   Point #1- You can rejoice because God chose you just the way you are!
