4For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you,

1: 4   Paul reminded the Thessalonians of their status as God’s chosen ones. Very few issues cause more confusion and even arguments among Christians than the issue of election (being chosen by God). It is difficult to simultaneously embrace God’s sovereignty in choosing us and our human responsibility in choosing to follow him. Even though we cannot completely comprehend how these two truths can coexist, we can affirm the following: Being chosen comes from the heart of God (not our minds), should be an incentive to please God (not ignore him), and should give birth to gratitude (not pride or complacency). Human responsibility requires that we actively confess Christ as Lord, focus on living to please him, and share the gospel with others. God’s choice of us energizes us to obey and to serve. Our following God challenges us to build lives worthy of him. As you consider God’s divine selection of you, how do you respond? Tyndale. NIV Life Application Study Bible.

ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and know that we have been chosen by GOD to be his children!!! by RICHARD DEAN BROOKS
