Christ is choosing us to come on an amazing adventure with Him. We aren’t chosen because we have great wealth, because of our standing in society, or because of our great intellect. God is choosing many of us to come with Him on this great recovery adventure because we are not those things. We are often disregarded and overlooked. We’re the exact type of people Christ wants to be with.
Christ is giving us a new life filled with adventure and purpose. We are a people who have lived a past filled with loss and despair. Each day of our lives was simply a means to get to the next day. Christ chooses us over the elite and self-absorbed. The only thing outstanding about us is that our lives were magnificently messed up.
We are the chosen of Christ. Chosen because we could not live our lives in a meaningful way without Him. Christ found us living in the shadows of this world and places us in His bright Light. The life we have now is chosen for us, and we are selected for Him. Christ looks at us and declares us to be His. Like the 12 disciples, Christ asks us to follow Him into a new life of purpose and adventure.
