In Him We Were Chosen

Many of us walk around with an entitled sense of being. We think that we are in control of everything. There are some who (especially if they are not a child of God) who think they control Gods realms. Life, Death, Sickness etc. Here's the real unadulterated truth. Man does not control anything but himself. If you are of God your belief system does not allow such vanity. Not even when it comes to your spiritual self and well being. God chose you. Bottom line. It is not the other way around. No!

Ephesians 1: 4-14

 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love God predestined us for adoption through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.To the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the those that he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace. God lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding. God made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ. To be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment. To bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.

 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will. In order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit. Who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession.To the praise of his glory.
