`As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord´
"Igniting soul's through the proclamation of Jesus Christ"
"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my Name." John 15:16
Were you ever the one no one wanted on his or her team? Were you ever chosen last? Isn't it amazing that we are loved and wanted by the King of the Ages and His Son, Jesus Christ. Isn't it remarkable that God chose us in Jesus Christ? Not only that, we weren't chosen out of pity, but to make a difference. We're chosen to bear fruit that will endure. To help insure that productivity, Jesus has promised we can ask for God's Blessing on our work for His Kingdom and He will Bless us. Incredible, isn't it? "I have chosen you out of the world." John 15:19
Here is a distinguishing of grace and discriminating regard, some are made the special objects of divine affection. Don't be afraid to dwell on the high doctrine of election. When our mind is more heavy and depressed, you will find it to be a bottle of riches. Those who doubt the doctrines of grace, or who cast them aside, miss the riches clusters within. They lose the wines of the most refined, the fat things full of needed marrow. There is no balm in all the land comparable to it. If the honey in John's wood when touched enlightened the eyes, this is honey which will enlighten your heart to love and learn the mysteries of the kingdom of God. Eat, and fear not, live on this choice, and don't fear that it will be too delicate or harsh a diet. Meat from the King's table will hurt none of His chosen to dine. Desire to have your mind enlarged, that you may comprehend more and more of the eternal, everlasting, discriminating love of God. When you have mounted as high as election, stay a while on the sister mount, the covenant of Grace. Covenant engagements are stupendous rock that we lie encased in. Covenant engagements with the surety, Christ Jesus, are the quiet resting-places of trembling spirits.
If Jesus undertook to bring me to glory, and if the Father promised that He would give me to the Son to be a part of the infinite reward of the travail of His soul, then, my soul, till God Himself shall be unfaithful, till Jesus shall cease to be the truth, thou art safe. When David danced before the ark, he told Michal that election made him do so. Come, my friend, exult before the God of Grace and leap for joy.
Pray this day with me: "Father, thank You for loving me enough to send Jesus as a ransom for my sins. Jesus, thank You for Your loving sacrifice that not only saves me, but shows me the full extent of Your love. Give me a heart, O' God, that is open to Your work and a vision that is as expansive as Your Grace. May my prayers ask for things that bring You glory, expand the borders of Your kingdom, and reach beyond the limited things that so often distract me. In Jesus' name I pray and thank You. Amen."
Love in the Lord
