Thought of the Day August 23, 2021 Chosen

By 9:57 AM

 It is the revelation of the Word of God that we are chosen by God to exist. We are chosen by God to be redeemed and thus become disciples. We have been chosen by God to be sanctified and anointed. We have been chosen by God to be with him for ever in glory. God chooses us not because of any merits of our own, but because he chooses us out of love. But even given this fact that we are chosen, doesn't free us from responding by mutually choosing God out of love. We do this when we honor, respect and care for our body and that of others. We do this when we choose as disciples to remain in relationship with God rather than live in sin. We do this when we seek to be holy and be witnesses of his holiness,  so as to be with God forever in his presence. God's choice is in the present moment. Our response is also in the present moment. How conscious are we of being chosen of God and how attentive are we in response?
