Chosen

Jesus has chosen us even before the creation of the world.

Day 20: God says you are…

CHOSEN

Alam mo ba yung domino effect sa relationship? Yung na-fall ka sa kanya, pero na-fall siya sa iba. Parang domino. Ang sakit di ba? Masakit talaga kapag hindi ka pinipili ng taong kulang na lang ay ipagsigawan mo sa buong mundo kung gaano siya kahalaga sayo.

This is one reality I’ve learned after posting something sa Facebook page ko then receiving comments kung gaano sila nasaktan for being forsaken, neglected, ignored. Yung pilit silang kumakapit pero binitiwan na sila. Sinukuan na sila. Ang daming nakakarelate. Ang dami palang may hugot sa buhay. Madaming hindi pinili.

Kahit hindi ka nila piliin, mahalaga ka pa rin. Alam mo ba kung bakit? Kasi may nauna nang pumili sayo at nagbigay ng worth. In fact, He died for you when no one else would.

Madalas kasi kapag hindi ka pinili pakiramdam mo worthless ka na e. Pero hindi yan totoo. Your worth is never determined by people who choose to desert you. Ikaw ay nananatiling ikaw. Kahit hindi ka nila piliin, mahalaga ka pa rin. Alam mo ba kung bakit? Kasi may nauna nang pumili sayo at nagbigay ng worth. In fact, He died for you when no one else would.

Jesus has chosen us even before the creation of the world. Ang lalim ano? Parang ang hirap intindihin. Paano akong pipiliin e wala pa nga ang mundo at hindi pa ako pinapanganak? Pero ganun ang sabi sa Bible e, God has a wonderful plan for us. Hindi pa man nagkakakilala ang ating mga magulang, chosen na tayo. Isn’t it comforting and overwhelming? Ano naman kung i-reject ako ng buong mundo? E si Lord naman ang pumili sa akin.

At ang pagkakapiling ito ay hindi basta-basta. He has predestined us for a purpose. He has chosen us for His glory. Nothing beats that privilege of giving glory to the Lord of Glory.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

1 Peter 2:9
